Sedation Dentistry at Port Hope Dental - Don't be afraid anymore!
Did you know that fear is the number one reason why people avoid the dentist. Avoiding the dentist might help you ease your nerves and anxiety, but it can also make a negative impact on your oral health.

Dr. Benedict is thrilled to offer Sedation Dentistry. Sedation Dentistry allows us to care for your oral health needs, while you are relaxed, under supervised sedation. Sedation Dentistry can be used for patients with dental anxiety or other conditions.

The Spa Dent teeth whitening system is now available at Dr. Jordan Benedict's Port Hope Dental Office. With this in-office whitening system, teeth may whiten 2 - 8 shades in as little as 30 minutes. Spa Dent whitening uses a cool blue and red LED light that activates the product, whitening your teeth deeper and faster for longer lasting results. There is virtually no sensitivity.

We recommend that you get your teeth cleaned before getting the whitening done for best results. Click here!

The Road to a Healthy Smile

More than 40 percent of children have tooth decay by the time they reach kindergarten. This statistic is alarming!

You've worked hard to take care of your child, from changing diapers to late night doctor visits; wouldn't it be nice to have someone else sharing some of the load not to worry about tooth decay? Your child's oral health care should start early!

How to prepare your child:

Our office will tell you what to expect during your child's first dental visit. To prepare your child for their first visit you need to let them know what to expect so they won't be surprised or startled. The key is to be patient and remain calm. This way your child won't react to your anxiety.
