Family Dentistry in Red Deer County AB
Families come in all shapes and sizes, and here at Gasoline Alley Dental in Red Deer, Dr. Whitehead and our staff would like to extend a warm welcome to your family - whatever shape or size it may be.
We take pride in offering trustworthy dental care to all ages; from happy visits for toddlers to routine check-ups and cleanings for the rest of the family, we encourage all our patient families to make their oral health a priority.
One of the most common questions parents ask Dr. Whitehead is “When should I bring my kids in for a check-up?” His answer is always “They can be seen as early as their first tooth or first year, whichever comes first!”
We start our tiny patients off with a no-charge happy visit. This appointment is a chance for 1- and 2-year-old kids to sit in the dental chair, meet your Central Alberta children’s dentist and our staff, have their teeth counted, explore the dental office a little bit, and just get comfortable with someone other than their parents looking in their mouth. We love happy visits!
Being parents ourselves, all of our staff members at Gasoline Alley Dental enjoy the vitality and energy our young patients bring in with them! We encourage routine check-ups and cleanings for kids of all ages where we demonstrate how to brush, floss, rinse, and take care of primary (baby) teeth in order to have a healthy mouth that is ready for adult teeth to come in.
When cavities are detected, and dental work is necessary, we offer nitrous sedation as an option for those families wishing to utilize it.
Tweens and Teens
Continuing with routine oral check-ups and cleanings through the soon-to-be-teen and teenage years is vital as the primary teeth disappear and the adult teeth arrive. This transition can sometimes result in crowding, so Dr. Whitehead and staff are pleased to offer Invisalign as an option to straighten smiles. If you want to know more about Invisalign, click here, or just ask any of our friendly staff members at your next appointment!
We have sedation options available for our teenage and older patients wishing to utilize them as well. If you have questions about our options, please feel free to give us a call, 403-343-8622, or come in for a visit- we would love to discuss them with you in person.
We welcome adults of all age ranges at Gasoline Alley Dental and continue encouraging routine check-ups, cleanings, and maintenance in order to keep teeth healthy and strong for as long as possible.
