Affinity Dental Care Family Dental BUrlington

Welcome First-Time Patients!

Yes! We love now patients and will make time for you, regardless of your end goals. Please see information in our “What to Expect at Your 1st Visit” section.

Our fees are based on the current Ontario Dental Association Fee Guide. We accept direct payments from insurance companies, and patients will only need to pay the differences if there are any.

Payment plans are available to eligible patients. Talk with our front desk team or Dr. Wong directly
for more detailed information.

How often you come for a dental exam depends on your oral health needs. We believe in a preventive approach to dentistry with a goal to catch small problems early. For many people, this means a dental exam every six to nine months. Dr. Wonq may suggest that you visit more or less often depending on how well you care tor your teeth and gums, problems you have that need to be checked or treated, how fast tartar builds up on your teeth, and so on. If you would like to alter your care schedule, we recommend talking with Dr. Wong to your next appointment.

Unfortunately we don’t provide discounts if you don’t have insurance coverage. We charge each procedure based on the current fee guide provided by Ontario Dental Association.

We do daily biological spore tests on our sterilizers to make sure the sterilizers are effective. Each
load that goes through the sterlization cycles are also monitored for proper temperature, pressure and duration.

Cavities start the moment your child’s teeth first begin to erupt. Because of that, a child’s first dental visit should occur by the age of one year, or when their first tooth appears (whichever comes first). The first tooth usually erupts when the child is 6 months old. Some infants are born with teeth on the lower front – called neonatal teeth.

Early cavities may not be visible to an untrained eye. Dentists have the knowledge and equipment to detect those cavities. Besides, the first dental visit is not just about cavities, it also involves the examination of missing teeth, abnormal morphology (genetic diseases) and erupting sequences etc. Soft oral tissue will also be examined for lesions and high frenum (like tongue ties etc). Diet counselling and brushing/cleaning will also be discussed.

Yes. Professionol whitening can be effective on both intrinsic and extiinsic staininq. No scientific
findings have proved that professional administered teeth whitening have long term negative effects to enamel and gum tissue.
