Dental Care For The Whole Family

Our office is specially designed for the whole family, including children and it contains state-of-the art operatories and the latest technologies. Our aim is to provide family dental services ranging from preventative dental care to the treatment of complex dental issues.Your children and you as parents will appreciate our calm and inviting office. Dr. Kim has two young boys and understands the fears that can arise when having to go to the dentist.

Our team will go above and beyond to make sure you and your family are comfortable and any fears or apprehensions are alleviated. We want your whole family to feel comfortable and feel like you are at home when you visit us. At Mission Creek Dental, we pride ourselves in the fact that children often ask to visit our office (to play in the kid’s room) and patients often come early just to relax, enjoy the view and have a cup of tea in our lovely reception area.

Pregnancy and Oral Health

During pregnancy your body undergoes many changes. Your mouth is no exception. Dental care during pregnancy is safe and recommended, especially since pregnancy can actually cause dental issues. Gum disease, characterized by sore or inflamed gums can occur during pregnancy. Acid wear caused by morning sickness/vomiting can wear away the enamel of the teeth.

When enamel breaks down, teeth are more susceptible to cavities. Remember, pregnancy cravings for sugar can also make teeth vulnerable to cavities.

Please let us know if you are pregnant or trying to get pregnant. We will work with you to ensure your mouth is healthy, as well as provide recommendations to minimize dental problems during pregnancy.
