Education & Prevention

Whether you are looking for general cleaning or making a decision of having major dental work done, there are some things you need to know. If you are looking to keep your teeth for life, it is relevant to know that teeth that fit together properly are easier to clean and are likely going to have less dental concerns as you get older.

We often get questions such as:

When should you bring your child to the dentist?

How often should I get my teeth cleaned?

What can you expect to your first visit to Slave Lake Dental?

What do your dental benefits cover?

What is Invisalign?

What is The Smile Project?

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Why does going to the dentist cost so much?

Here are some important questions you should be asking your Dentist:

How Do you know if you grind your teeth?

How are dental equipment and tools sterilized?

Is wearing a custom sports mouth guard useful?

What is a same day crown?

Why should I straighten my teeth?

Does your Dentist just look at your teeth?

“I am super happy with Slave Lake Dental, particularly my dentist, Dr. Natalie Stone! I had gum graft surgery last year and was even texting pictures of the graft site to Dr. Stone at 10pm!! Dr. Stone genuinely cares and I feel very valued as a patient and confident that she does her best for me. Our family (2 adults, 2 children) travel over an hour one way to Slave Lake from High Prairie for our appointments and the staff are very accommodating in trying to fit us all in together whenever they can. Wonderful staff & service!”

Amy is very considerate when I have my cleaning and check up knowing I have sensitive teeth. Natalie has done excellent dental work when it was needed.
