Below, we’ve compiled a list of common questions we receive from our dental patients. If you don’t see the information you’re looking for, please feel free to give us a call.

How often should I visit the dentist?

Both Dr. Bal and the Canadian Dental Association recommend that patients should visit their dentist bi-annually to preserve the health of their teeth and gums, as well as prevent common oral problems like cavities and gum disease.

When is your dental office open?

We’re happy to offer convenient appointment times for our dental patients. We’re open Monday, Friday and Sunday from 10am to 3pm and Tuesday through Thursday from 10am to 7pm. You can also inquire about scheduling an appointment on Sunday between 12pm and 5pm.

What kind of dental care do you provide?

Dr. Bal has over two decades of experience in the dental field and has completed hundreds of hours of continuing education courses, allowing him to provide comprehensive general dentistry under one roof. This includes everything from dental implants to sleep apnea treatment and more. Chances are, if you have a dental concern, our team can address it.

Do I have to get braces to straighten my crooked teeth?

While some patients may benefit from traditional braces, today, you have more options to choose from, like Invisalign aligners. These are clear, plastic trays that are designed to place a strategic and gentle amount of pressure on your teeth to shift them into alignment and address bite problems.

I’ve just knocked a tooth out or am experiencing extreme dental pain! What should I do?
