Get To know Us
No one likes to think about their child in pain but, unfortunately, dental emergencies do occur. As your children grow up and begin leading increasingly active lives, the opportunities for injury increase. Blows to the head or mouth can often cause serious damage to their teeth and require immediate attention from a children’s dentist. Whatever the dental emergency Ridge Meadows Children’s Dentistry is here to help.
How To Tell
When It’s An Emergency
Some dental emergencies are relatively simple to identify. For example, excessive bleeding from the mouth following an accidental blow to the face is a pretty clear indicator that you should seek out an emergency children’s dentist immediately. However, some emergencies are not as conspicuous. If your child experiences continual jaw pain with no apparent cause, it could be indicative of a problem with their teeth. In such cases, it’s a good idea to call Ridge Meadows Children’s Dentistry and request an emergency appointment with Dr. Anu Korada.

Things to remember

Meet Dr. Anu Korada
Having trained as a dentist in the UK, I was interested in pediatric dentistry from the beginning. I was drawn to the fun, innocence and honesty of children. Being a mother of two young children, I understand what the important things are when bringing up children. That’s why we as a family chose Maple Ridge, Canada to move from London, UK.
I have over ten years of experience working in pediatric and special care dentistry including Canada and the UK. I also love teaching Pediatric Dentistry at UBC and BC Children's Hospital.
I strongly believe that good oral hygiene is the gateway to good overall general health. Providing children positive experiences and developing coping skills for the not-so-good experiences will strengthen them and prepare them for adulthood.
Although baby teeth are temporary, they play a vital role: they support the growth of the jaw and face. They provide spacing for the adult teeth to grow. My role as a pediatric dentist is to provide an environment that is confortable for your children and work with the parents to encourage a positive attitude towards oral health.
