Who is the best dentist in Regina?
Of course you would like to know who the best dentist in Regina is. Dental care can be intimidating and very personal, you want to make sure you are receiving treatment from someone you are comfortable with and have confidence in.
Fortunately for you, simpli dental is here to help you figure out who the best dentist in Regina really is.
So who is it? Sorry to lead you on like this bit it really and truly is a personal preference. We are fortunate to have many dental providers and want to assure you that you should have confidence in the dental population that provides services to the city of Regina.
When determining who the best dentist in Regina is, there are many individual factors to consider. They include the following:
Your dentist should listen to your concerns and needs
Each patient is unique and requires a tailored treatment plan. There are many ways to achieve a healthy smile and no two patients are identical. Your dentist will provide you with a thorough examination followed by a consultation to understand what your treatment goals are. Following this, a treatment plan is provided as a professional recommendation to achieve your desired results.
Your dentist should provide you with treatment options that suit your budget
Sometimes us dentists get a little excited and carried away with our treatment plans. After all, we just want to do the finest work! As previously mentioned, there are many ways to achieve a healthy smile through numerous treatment options. Use replacing a missing tooth as an example. You could go with a dental bridge, a dental implant, or a partial denture. All options would successfully replace a missing tooth but each unique, have their own advantages and disadvantages, and vary in price. Your dentist should provide you with options that suit your budget and allow you to achieve your oral health goals.
The dental clinic should be clean
This goes without saying…so we said it anyways. The dental industry has strict disinfection and sterilization regulations to ensure patient safety and best practices. As a patient of a dental clinic in Regina, you can be confident that your clinic is clean and sanitary.
Your dentist should stay up to date
The dental profession is constantly evolving with the development of new equipment, treatment techniques and scientific studies. As dental providers, we stay up to date through continuing education requirements to ensure our patients are receiving high-quality and modern treatment.
Your dental clinic should try to make things comfortable
Bare with us on this one. We know that going to the dentist is not always the most enjoyable activity. We would much rather be at the spa but the result of good oral health and a bright smile is worth it. Your dentist and support staff should do everything in their power to try and make your visit as comfortable and pain-free as possible. If you are undergoing any treatment, dental or otherwise, you need to be aware that you are in control. If you are uncomfortable and need an adjustment or more freezing, we can always take a break or reset.
Your dental clinic should care
Dentists are healthcare professionals that provide essential services in restoring and maintaining optimal oral health. They care about their patients and what is best for them. Whichever dental clinic you decide to visit should leave you feeling as though your personal needs have been made a priority. You should have confidence in knowing that you have been well cared for by a health professional team.
Your dental clinic should be convenient
We all have different priorities when placing value on amenities offered by service providers. For some of us, we may be looking for the best price. For others, possibly the most convenient location close to home. Maybe you need to find a dentist that is open evenings and weekends. Whatever is important to you in a dental provider, it should be convenient. Dental clinics are like any other organization in that they operate in a sustainable manner that is best suited to their patients and staff. There are many competing factors that don’t allow for all amenities to be offered. Consider hours of operation. Many staff members would prefer not to work evenings and weekends. If you live in a small town and enjoy the convenience of having a clinic close to you, there may not be enough support staff to work less-desirable hours and therefore your close-to-home dental clinic may not offer evening and weekend appointments. Sometimes it is difficult to find everything that you are looking for and you may need to make sacrifices to find a clinic that offers what is most important to you.
We hope this will help you find your best dentist in Regina!

The straightening of teeth can be beneficial in achieving and healthy and beautiful smile. You may have your own reasons for considering orthodontic treatment but some of the common ones include,
- To correct an overbite or underbite
- To correct spacing between teeth
- To correct crowding of teeth
- To prevent wear
- To increase confidence
- To better your oral and systemic health
Clear aligner orthodontics is a method of straightening teeth using plastic, clear aligners that are custom fitted to the patient’s teeth. Invisalign is the most popular brand name and one of several providers of clear aligners available. Invisalign for clear aligners is like Kleenex for facial tissue!
There are many advantages to using clear aligners over traditional braces, however they do have their drawbacks and limitations. Ultimately, it is up to the treating doctor to decide whether or not a patient is a good candidate for clear aligner treatment or if they should undergo traditional orthodontic treatment with braces. Some of the advantages of clear aligner orthodontics are,
- They’re clear (bet you could have found that out yourself!)
- Thy are more aesthetic
- They can be less expensive
- They’re removable
- Easier to clean your teeth and gums than braces
Deciding to have your teeth straightened not only improves the appearance of your smile. Straightening teeth also improves the function of the teeth and muscles in general. A malocclusion (misalignment of teeth) can open up patients to a number of complications including:
- Increased number of cavities due to the difficulty of cleaning overlapping teeth
- Fracturing and wear of poorly positioned teeth
- Temporomandibular joint problems
- Chronic inflammation of the gums
The cost of orthodontic treatment can vary depending on multiple factors that are taken into consideration by the treating doctor. Some of those factors include the type of appliances that are used to correct misaligned teeth as well as the severity of this misalignment or facial structures. To give you an idea of our prices for clear aligner treatment, please see below.
- Professional fees: $500 one time plus $90 per set of trays (A set includes upper and/or lower trays)
- Laboratory fees: $195 one time plus $40 per tray (includes upper OR lower tray, if both upper and lower trays are needed, it would $80 per set)
Please note that laboratory fees are not charged by simpli dental, we only act as an intermediary to collect on behalf of the laboratory. A dental laboratory is used to manufacture the clear aligners.
We cannot determine exactly how many sets of clear aligner trays you will need to achieve your ideal smile but we can tell you that on average, the patients we treat require between 5 and 20 trays.
