Affordable Family Dentists in Calgary SW Alberta

At Sierra Dental, we are aware that dental costs in Alberta are the highest in Canada. As such, it’s more important than ever for Calgary families to find an affordable family dentist.

If the entire family is cared for by the same dental practice, there are likely some other qualities that you will look for as well as affordability.

You will likely expect experienced and skilled dentists, a children-friendly environment, and the use of leading dental technology to ensure that procedures are as least invasive as possible.

As one of the most affordable family dentists in Calgary, the team at Sierra Dental prides itself on delivering the best value without ever compromising on quality.

Here’s a little more detail on how we do that…

Five qualities that set us apart as a family dentist

We take affordability seriously and believe in charging reasonable fees to families for dental care. However, there are other important values that we take seriously as family dentists in Calgary.

The following qualities are the main reasons that Calgary parents choose Sierra Dental and stay with us for the long term as their children grow up with winning smiles and the best dental hygiene possible:

Trips to the dentists aren’t usually much fun for children or adults. We go out of our way to create a welcoming environment.

Our staff love what they do and this results in an environment where children view trips to the dentist not as something to be dreaded but with an eagerness to learn more about their teeth and have some fun in the process.

Our dental specialists cover everything from general dentistry and sedation dentistry to dental emergencies, orthodontics, periodontics, prosthodontics, and cosmetic dentistry.

We will listen to your problems and help you decide on the best treatment to achieve your objectives affordably and with minimal inconvenience or discomfort.

Our team of family dentists is not just committed to fixing problems with your teeth but to helping you look after your teeth.

We will teach your family about dental hygiene so that trips to the dentist for future treatment are kept to a minimum.

Technology helps dentists deliver results more effectively and more conveniently for patients.

Dental technology is evolving quickly and our practice stays across the latest developments to make sure that our patients benefit.

Dental stress is a real problem that can prevent families from seeing their dentist as often as they should.

By offering a choice of sedation medications, we provide a stress- and pain-free experience that encourages families to get problems treated early on rather than waiting until the tooth or gum pain develops and becomes excruciating.

What services does Sierra Dental provide for children?

Children are treated with great care at Sierra Dental. We aim to create a fun and educational environment that welcomes children and encourages trips to the dentist rather than being something to dread. That way, children grow up naturally looking after their teeth.

Our pediatric dentists offer a full range of services via our kids’ program — from caring for baby teeth to healthy tooth development and prevention of dental diseases including cavities and tooth decay.

We also provide routine teeth cleaning services and monitor developmental changes to educate your child on healthy habits. Sedation dentistry is also available (as a last resort) for children.
