Here to Help You Smile

Steinbach Dental Clinic » Our Practice

Our Philosophy

We’re devoted to maintaining a high standard of excellence in personalized dental care. Whether you require comprehensive dentistry, restorative treatment, or preventative care, we’ll help you achieve your optimal dental health – no matter your age or situation. And should a dental emergency occur, we’ll make every effort to ensure you receive the care you need as quickly as possible.

Education & Prevention

We believe that dental education and preventative care are key to realizing optimal dental health. Routine cleanings, brushing, and flossing, for example, are helpful in preventing disease. We also focus on thorough exams to check the teeth and gums and screen for other potential problems. Medical history provided from our patients helps us to stay informed on their general health.

Training & Expertise

Our dental team is committed to continual education and learning. We attend dental lectures, meetings, and conventions to keep informed of new techniques, products and technology – all to ensure you can count on comfortable, state-of-the-art care from professionals in our community.

Uncompromising Safety

To protect our patients and our clinic personnel, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross-contamination prevention protocols as required by the Manitoba Dental Association.

Our new facility also uses the latest engineering technology to provide a safe environment for our patients. For example:

  • Medical-grade clean air exchange provides extra protection against aerosols and air-borne viruses.
  • Our floor plan and wiring are designed to work optimally with modern treatment devices.
  • Sub-micron water filtration ensures the water we use is of the highest quality.
  • Work surfaces and equipment in treatment rooms are designed for both comfort and cleanliness.
