Maple Dental Hygiene Care greatly values first childhood experiences. First impressions are everything, especially for children.
At Maple Dental Hygiene Care we always schedule extra time for children’s appointments to ensure they feel comfortable and relaxed in our care. As well, we are always happy to take the time needed with parents to address any questions, concerns and explain any treatment. At Maple Dental Hygiene Care, children receive individualized quality care. New public health guidelines now recommend children visit an oral health care provider before their first birthday. Pina Mazza’s skill and knowledge as a Registered Dental Hygienist, an Orofacial Myologist and an Orthodontic Dental Hygienist allow her to screen for a variety of oral health care concerns in infants and children. Dental concerns such as:
- Tongue tie
- Mouth breathing
- Teeth grinding
- Thumb/finger sucking
- Speech difficulties related to tongue positioning
- Open bites
- Orthodontic/TMJ concerns
These conditions and how they relate to oral health, overall growth and development are assessed and discussed with parents. Pina Mazza collaborates with other health care professionals and when necessary can refer to ensure children are able to achieve a healthy smile for a lifetime.
