We are a family-friendly clinic and we offer dentistry services for kids that will help to ensure that your children’s teeth grow healthy and strong. A child’s first permanent tooth usually appears around the age of 6, but we want to be there right from the very beginning to be there to make sure that your child’s dental health is given the care and attention it deserves.

What is more important than the health of your child? If your children need a dentist in Ottawa, we have you covered.

Holistic Dentistry for Children

The Teal Umbrella is a holistic dentist for kids in Ottawa. We understand that the mouth is linked to the rest of the body, and so we make an effort to make sure that the children we see are healthy in more ways than just their teeth.

Dental Education

Part of that is making sure they receive good education on tooth care from a young age. Dr. Samarrae educates children and parents about healthy diets and good brushing techniques to help them maintain a healthy smile into adulthood.

Family Scheduling

Our Ottawa family dental clinic offers family scheduling to make your life easier. Are you tired of rushing your multiple children back and forth from the dentist on separate days? With The Teal Umbrella, you can book everyone in at once!

We want to save you time and effort to streamline your life. But most of all, we want to encourage preventative dentistry to keep your children’s teeth healthy throughout their lives. We offer kids dentistry to the whole of Ottawa.

Braces, Retainers and Aligners

If your child is developing an overbite or underbite, has crooked or unaligned teeth, or even a gap, we can fit them for braces, aligners or retainers to improve the look and function of their teeth and jaw.


Our team can remove any damaged teeth that are severely cracked, broken or rotting before it becomes a serious issue. If your child is experiencing problems with an impacted tooth or one of their wisdom teeth, we can carefully extract it to alleviate any discomfort and encourage proper development of the surrounding teeth.


For active kids that play contact sports like hockey or basketball, it’s important to protect their teeth from any impacts. Our kids’ dentists in Ottawa can help fit your child with a mouthguard that will provide them with maximum protection.

Fluoride Treatments

Regular fluoride treatments can protect your child’s teeth from developing cavities. We recommend children have a fluoride treatment as part of their regular checkups, but we ultimately leave the decision up to you.


Do you offer emergency dental services?

Yes, you can call 613-225-9201 after hours and our answering machine will refer you to our emergency contact number.

Do you provide a play area for kids?

Yes, our office is very child friendly. We have a play area located in our waiting room and a selection of children’s books to keep them entertained while they wait. Our dental team is also very friendly and will take the time to make your child feel right at home.

When should I bring my child in for their first appointment?

Usually around the age of three is when you will book your first appointment with a dentist. However, we recommend caring for your child’s teeth when they are babies. You can put a little bit of toothpaste on your finger to rub it over their gums after each feeding. When their baby teeth start to come in, they can be brushed. It is important that you supervise your children until they can brush on their own, without swallowing the toothpaste.

Do you offer sedative therapy?

Yes, we do. If your child is very nervous, we can use a sedative treatment to help calm and relax them.

What are your rates for pediatric dentistry?

Our rates are consistent with the suggested fee guide provided by the Ontario Dental Association. Our dental clinic is also upfront with our fees, you will not be subjected to any hidden fees. Estimates will include the cost of any laboratory fees and additional materials and treatments when required.
