Some say the dental office is a scary place... like the jungles of the Amazon.

We think the jungle and the dental office can be full of surprises and a lot of fun!!

On this Dental Safari, we'll show you the sights and sounds of the dental office.

Anxiety at the Dental Office!

Anxiety at the dental office...

Many people, including young kids, may find the dental office an anxiety provoking place. A technique to help kids, particularly kids with Autism Spectrum Disorder, is to discuss a social story prior to going to the dental office.

The Hands in Autism Resource centre has a great tool to help kids out. It is like a visual story.

The dental visuals icons may also be helpful from Living Well with Autism.

Dr. Chan goes on a field trip to Japan!

Being a dentist is not just about being in the dental office. We need to continually grow and learn new things.
Dr. Chan goes to Tokyo, Japan to attend the World Endodontic Congress. 

While Dr. Chan was there, he did get some time to check out some sights and try some interesting food! Ask him all about his learning experience and what he saw in Japan!

Hartman Public School - Mrs. Fantin-Gallo's grade 3 class comes for a visit

Mrs. Fantin-Gallo's students from Hartman Public School came for a visit. We always welcome our community guests to visit our office!

We taught the students all about dental hygiene care, showed them around the dental operatories, how our instruments are sanitized and gave them a tour of our office.

This is Krista explaining dental hygiene care with our friendly dental puppets.

Keep the visitors coming! We love having friends of the community in our office.
