General dentistry is dental care provided by a dentist, who is able to diagnose, treat, and provide overall healthcare needs with a focus on prevention. Okanagan Smiles handles all manner of dental care right in our office, so, whether you need a regular check-up and clean or require something more in-depth, like extractions or a root canal, our team of professionals can help. We care about your well being and want you to be confident in your smile. That’s why we also offer implants and bridges as well. In keeping with our mission to make you comfortable, we’ve invested in the latest technology to make your visit less stressful. To that end, our services include digital x-rays, soft tissue laser, and air abrasion; all designed to reduce discomfort during common dental procedures.

Full Hygiene Services
Our dental hygienists provide individualized patient care. You will be informed of your oral health status as well as updated at every maintenance appointment. This will keep you in the loop throughout the entire therapy, which helps you achieve optimal oral health.
Here at Okanagan Smiles, we like to provide the kids with a fun and safe environment where they can interact freely with the staff here. Kids should be seen by a dentist starting 6 months after the first tooth erupts, or at one year of age.
Who doesn’t want white, good-looking teeth? At Okanagan Smiles Dentistry, we make a point to carry more than 30 shades of white to ensure that your fillings aren’t noticeable.
Root Canal Therapy
The dentists at Okanagan Smiles Dentistry provide endodontic treatments in our office. Sometimes due to injury/trauma or large cavities, the nerves inside the tooth become infected and die.
Dental implants are a revolutionary advancement for dentistry, providing replacement options for missing teeth. Implants provide support for crowns, bridges, partials and complete dentures, creating a natural-looking smile.
Soft Tissue Laser
The newest and biggest advances in painless dentistry are being introduced through laser dentistry. We are staying current with the art of dentistry, making use of the iLase hand-held soft tissue laser technology.
If you’re missing teeth, bridges might be the right solution for you. Replacing missing teeth is vital to maintain your overall health. Bridges use surrounding teeth or implants to anchor the ends of the bridge with crowns, while the pontic, a false tooth, replaces the missing teeth.
Digital X-rays are a fast, accurate and comfortable diagnostic tool we use to determine your dental needs. Today many are concerned about radiation. Okanagan Smiles Dentistry is pleased to provide digital X-rays, greatly minimizing your radiation exposure.
What if tooth decay is hidden within the enamel so that it isn’t visible on a radiograph? We don’t want to wait until the decay is big enough to hurt or cause a huge cavity so we use the DIAGNOdent.
Newly erupted teeth are extremely susceptible to tooth decay. To aid in the protection of your child’s precious teeth, we recommend placing a barrier to help block out cavity-causing bugs.
Do you hate needles? Do you dislike drills? For decay that doesn’t approach the nerve of the tooth, we can use pressured air with particles in it to blow off the decay from within your tooth.
