New Westminster General Dentistry

As a family-friendly clinic, Asante Dental Centre dentists in New Westminister treat children as well as adults. Our young patients can be treated using lasers. In some cases, we may not even need to freeze. We can also use laughing gas when needed to help our young visitors feel more relaxed when getting the treatment.

Digital X-Rays

Asante Dental in New Westminster can perform digital x-rays to show different aspects of the teeth to provide a method to speed up your appointment and learn more about the health of your teeth.

DIAGNOdent Cavity Check

We have a variety of technology options including the DIAGNOdent cavity check, which detects any possible decayed tooth structure that may need a cavity filling with a laser scanner.

Gum Disease

Gum disease is an infection that surrounds the teeth and causes the gums swollen, red, tender, and may cause persistent bad breath. Our dentists can help treat gum disease by doing a professional cleaning and reminding you to keep brushing and flossing daily.

Teeth Cleaning

We are general dentistry providing professional teeth cleaning services. Asante Dental offers a deep cleaning process that involves removing plaque and tartar from the surface of the teeth and in between the teeth and gums. 

Dental Fillings

At Asante Dental in New Westminster, we provide dental fillings to repair common damage to teeth. Dental fillings might be required for people who grind their teeth, have broken or cracked teeth, or have just been worn down over time.

Oral Cancer Screening

We provide oral cancer screenings to our dental patients to identify mouth cancer early. An oral cancer screening usually consists of a physical examination where a dentist observes the tissues of the oral cavity to detect if you have oral cancer or not. 

Decay Removal

Decay removal is needed when the tooth has developed a buildup of plaque and the tooth is at risk for developing a cavity or other kinds of tooth decay.


A tooth extraction may be needed for pulling teeth for braces, pulling teeth to save space, pulling teeth due to damage or decay, or in radiation or chemotherapy patients.

Wisdom Teeth

Our dentists have extensive experience in wisdom teeth removal procedures. We have friendly staff to make sure you are comfortable and at ease in your wisdom teeth removal surgery.

Root Canals

With Asante Dental in New Westminster, our experienced dentists will be sure to keep you as comfortable as possible throughout the root canal procedure.

Routine Check Up

While a healthy diet, regular brushing, and flossing are key parts of great dental health, regular check-ups are a must. Check-ups allow dentists to examine your teeth, gums, and mouth and to detect potential issues such as cavities, gum disease, jaw joint problems, as well as oral cancer. Early detection allows for quick treatment before things worsen. During a check-up, we can even advise you on cosmetic dentistry options to improve your smile.

Oral Hygiene

Good family dental health begins with proper oral hygiene. Although brushing and flossing properly as well as maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle are very important, sometimes even this isn’t enough. This is why regular dental check-ups are necessary because our dentists in New Westminster can see things that you might not notice. We detect and treat problems early before advanced decay and pain. 

Exams & Cleanings

For a healthy smile, we also provide safe, effective teeth-whitening solutions, and always advise our patients on the very best ways to maintain great-looking teeth. Things like using the right toothpaste, teaching you how to brush and floss properly, advising you on a healthy diet, as well as counseling you on quitting smoking are all aspects of good dental care. The team at Asante Dental Centre has the knowledge and experience to advise you on all of these decisions and more.

Questions & Answers

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

According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, a child should have their first dental appointment when their first tooth is erupting or no later than by their first birthday.

My child has a toothache. Should I call the dentist?

To determine what to do, look inside your child’s mouth to see if they are experiencing the natural processing of teething as you can expect that they will be experiencing a little discomfort from that. If they continue to complain about the toothache, then it’s time to come for a dental visit.

If your child is wanting help pulling out their loose tooth, get a tissue and place it over the tooth and gently squeeze it. It should easily fall away with no pain at all.
