It is a charity campaign sponsored by the Alberta Dental Association and College.

The campaign will be running from Sept 1 to Oct 31, 2019.


What does it mean for you?


Get a free dental exam for first grade 2019 start school smiling 1If your kids start school this year on grade 1 and you are interested in their oral and general health, and the look of their smile you have the unique opportunity to benefit of a total FREE DENTAL EXAM that can include also bitewing X-rays if they are necessary.

You can prevent in this way later complicated and expensive dental treatment because you can come in for a dental exam and find out earlier about possible dental treatment needs that your child might have.

We all agree that preventing always cheaper than treating a problem when related to our general or dental health or any other situation in our life. This time preventing get even cheaper than usual, because you do not pay anything for the first dental exam. In case after the exam, we notice there are some important dental treatments that your precious child needs for his or her healthy development we will inform you and show you all options, including the cost for further treatment if needed. You have the freedom to accept or not any of our proposals and you have no obligations what so ever related to our dental office in SW Calgary.

We believe now is the best moment to bring your child for a dental visit because left undetected and untreated dental issues can cause pain, discomfort and even worst consequences and we do not want that for your child, especially during school time. Having a painful tooth, a cavity, a chipped tooth, or any other dental issue can make your kid be less focused in class, skip classes or even influence his or her general health. So take action now and benefit of this special campaign and get your precious child to a FREE Dental Exam 🙂
