Committed to Patient Satisfaction
Comprehensive Dental Care in Orillia
Kindness, efficiency and professionalism are waiting for you at Dr. Van Rassel Family Dentistry.
Our office strives to provide an excellent dental experience for all of our patients. Our warm professional staff is extensively trained and happy to assist you. We invite you to share your questions and concerns so we can set you at ease.
In our practice we care for the entire family:
- It is critical that children learn how to care for their teeth, even before permanent teeth emerge. Our dental professionals make it fun for kids to visit the dentist, ensuring they will develop good habits that last a lifetime.
- Teens need regular dental exams to ensure continued oral health as they move into adulthood. Problems with tooth alignment often emerge at this age, requiring specialized attention from an orthodontic expert.
- The conditions of teeth can change as we age. Adults need regular dental care to ensure their oral health is in good condition. Periodontal disease (gum disease) is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. With research exploring possible links between gum disease and diabetes, cardiovascular disease and other serious ailments, regular dental exams are critical to the prevention and detection of periodontal disease.
- Seniors need specialized dental services that focus on the effects of aging on the gums and teeth. Certain conditions may increase the risk of tooth decay due to demineralised areas of the teeth. Seniors with gum disease, crowns and bridges and dry mouth conditions caused by medications benefit from fluoride treatment to help remineralise tooth enamel.
Communication and Trust
We believe that communication is a vital part of our patient relationships. Communication builds trust, and trust is essential to effective dental care. That is why we take time to learn all we can about you.
Because we want you to be an active participant in your dental care, we encourage your questions. We explain all of the procedures and treatments we are using in plain language so you can make informed decisions about your oral care.
