Calgary Family Dentists Work for You and Your Loved OnesOne of the best parts of my job as a dentist is when I am able to treat an entire family. There is great satisfaction in getting to know you and your kids, and then working with you all through the many stages of life and development. It also gives me a special opportunity to provide the very best of care as a dentist and help ensure a lifetime of good teeth. The more I know about a patient and their dental history, the better I am able to anticipate and treat problems.

At West Market Dental, we are Calgary family dentists, which means we are qualified to care for patients of all ages. With more than 25 years of combined experience in the dental field, we provide a full range of dental services.

What Should You Look For in Your Family Dentist?

First, of course, you should look for a family dentist that is fully licensed and certified, and who has an impeccable track record. Ask for recommendations and check reviews online. We are pleased to have earned a 4.8/5 rating on Google and a 98% rating on Demandforce, and are proud of the many client testimonials we have been able to collect. We are always happy to provide information about our commitment to our clients.

Second, make sure you are comfortable with your dentist, and that your kids are too. It’s easy to be intimidated by a medical provider, but trust me, the last thing we want you or your children to do is keep quiet during your appointments (except when we have our hands in your mouth, which we know is not the greatest). In order to get the most out of your family dental care, you should be open and honest about any current concerns and potential difficulties. 

Third, make inquiries into billing. Our knowledgeable front-end team is experienced with working with every major dental insurance provider in Alberta, and we will always do our best to help you get the most out of your coverage. This means appropriate scheduling of treatments and open communication with our clients. We never want finances to preclude you and your family getting the treatment you need, and are available to discuss payment plans and other options.

Finally, look for a convenient location. It can be hard enough to make and keep appointments even without having to drive across the city! Our dental office is located in the southwest of Calgary, easily reachable from 17th Avenue and Sarcee Trail SW. Before signing up for your first appointment, feel free to request a tour of our clinic. We have worked hard to create a welcoming, kid-friendly environment that we think can assist with keeping you and your family calm and relaxed during your visits. A family dentist also makes it much easier to schedule your regular cleaning appointments and check-ups. The whole family can visit at the same time!

Services Provided by a Family Dentist

In addition to regular cleanings including x-rays, scaling and fluoride treatments, West Market Dental also provides all aspects of general dentistry services. Among the most common procedures we perform include applying dental sealants to help prevent the advancement of tooth decay and filling cavities, which can happen to even the most dedicated to their teeth.   

Other services include:

We are also available for dental emergencies, such as a broken or knocked-out tooth. Kids can get into all kinds of scrapes on the playground, too, and we have seen and repaired just about every kind of playtime accident you can think of.

In addition, sedation dentistry services are very useful for those who find a trip to the dentist to be especially uncomfortable, and are an effective way to combat dental anxiety.
