Trustworthy Family Dentist in Edmonton

She’s working on her ABCs, and he’s learning to tie his shoes. But are your children developing healthy habits as well? Many parents mistakenly place their child’s oral health on the backburner. What these parents don’t know is that poor dental health can lead to overall health complications. A family dentist in Edmonton can walk you through the essentials. For example, they will inform you that dental visits should begin at age 1 or whenever the first tooth appears. Northgate Dental Centre can start your child on a lifelong journey of positive oral health.

The Children's Dentist Edmonton Needs

Not every dentist is equipped to deal with children. Dr. Gordon Mah is the general dentist Edmonton trusts, having more than 30 years of experience in the industry and a decade at Northgate Dental Centre. Many of Dr. Mah’s adult patients have been patients here since they were youngsters and now bring their kids to see him! Read these tips for your child’s first dental visit.

As you watch your child develop healthy habits, you’ll experience the fulfilment we enjoy daily. We’ve been in business for 30 years and have worked with children of all ages. Over time, we will work with your child on the following:

  • Brushing and flossing
  • Transitioning from a bottle to a cup
  • Limiting sugary foods that cause cavities

When your child visits our office, we will provide patient and compassionate care. We do our best to create a child-friendly environment. Working with your family is our privilege, and we try to cater to each member’s dental needs.


We recommend that all of our patients schedule bi-annual cleanings. Regular checkups allow our dentist to catch problems before they become larger issues.
