What to Expect

Learn All About Your First Visit

Our Office

Conveniently located at the intersection of Hyde Park Road and Riverside Drive. It is fully wheel chair accessible with ample free parking and offers a family friendly and welcoming environment.

What We Offer

All children, including those with special needs, are greeted and treated as unique persons and, in consultation with their parent/care giver, an individualized treatment approach is developed.

Our Staff

Our staff is a well trained team committed to a friendly and effective approach to care.
It includes pediatric dental specialists, dental hygienist, preventive dental assistants, treatment planning co-ordinator, and business personnel.


Children should be seen for their first dental visit by the age of one as recommended by both the Canadian Dental Association and Canadian Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. By seeing children and infants at an early age, we can assess their risk for developing dental disease and teach good oral care to encourage a life time of oral health.

  • You will be requested to complete a questionnaire that helps us determine the best approach to care. Download Inital Consultation Forms
  • You and your child will first be seen in a family-friendly room where you will have an opportunity to discuss any concerns or questions.
  • Dr. Friedman/Dr. ARI may request that x-rays or photos be taken.
  • We are committed to providing you with the best dental care available and by providing preventative care we can help you to lower the cost of oral care.

  • Risk Assessment and Management

    Our goal is to help you identify what risk factors may be contributing to developing dental disease and what measure can be taken to reduce that risk

    Assessment tools may include oral and family histories, diet analysis and bacterial and saliva testing and based on the findings we can tailor a program to specifically address your child’s risk factors and improve their oral health.

  • Erbium Laser

    The Erbium laser offers an alternative to the high-speed drill, preserves tooth structure and is anti-microbial so reduces infection

    The Diode laser is a soft tissue laser and is used for frenotomies, tongue tie revisions and bio-stimulation. It also kills bacteria and can encourage tissue regeneration. There is less bleeding with the laser than with the scalpel so less need for suturing.

  • Patient Guided Sensory Integration (PGSI)

    This program was created to help children with sensory issues to learn to better tolerate dental care. The needs of the child and the parents are taken into consideration. Each child has individual needs and triggers, these are used as a guide to forming a plan for oral care and treatment. The use of music therapy, pressure, positive reinforcement, orofacial massage, desensitization, repetitive tasking, as well as distraction are integrated at a pace that suits the needs of the child. It is important to work with the family and care givers as they are a great wealth of information.

We promote early intervention and dental care from

infancy to young adults
