How to Find a Family-Friendly Dentist in Kelowna


Throughout their childhood, your kids will spend dozens of hours in the dentist’s chair. If you’re looking for a family-friendly dentist in Kelowna, Okanagan Smiles offers everything you could want in a dental clinic for your child or teen.

As a parent, you want to know your child is getting the best dental care possible, but also that they’ll look forward to those trips to the dentist.

Here is a list of things to think about when you’re looking for a family dentist in Kelowna:

Good word of mouth. If you’re new to the city, ask coworkers, neighbours and other health professionals for suggestions. Good family dentists will get tons of praise you can trust.

Good rapport. You want a dentist that will help your child have a healthy, beautiful smile for life, but you also want a dentist your child likes. At your son or daughter’s first appointment, stick around to see if the dentist and the staff are able to explain procedures simply and make your child feel at ease.

A convenient location. If your dental clinic is located somewhere near that’s easy to find and offers parking, it will make your life all the better. The Okanagan Smiles Kelowna dental clinic is conveniently located at 101-2149 Springfield Road across from Orchard Park Mall. Yes, we said mall.

A well-equipped waiting area. What is there for your child to do at your dentist’s office? Many dentists today offer a range of activities and toys for your child to play with while they wait for their appointment. At Okanagan Smiles, your kids can enjoy an area dedicated to entertaining children: they can watch TV, read a book, or even play a game on the office iPad!

Flexible payment options. Not everyone has the perfect dental insurance plan. If your family is on a budget, ask your dentist what kind of financing and payment options they offer. Okanagan Smiles Kelowna dentistry accepts credit and debit cards, deposits you put toward treatment, and credit available through financing service providers MediCard and Crelogix.

Whether you’re visiting us for cosmetic or general dentistry, we provide a comfortable experience with results that will last. Contact us to book an appointment today!
