Our Services

Emergency Appointments

We try to see all emergencies on the same day, call us to make an appointment.

Oral Hygiene

Keep your mouth and body healthy by having regular cleanings to reduce bacterial levels to help prevent decay and periodontal disease. Regular check ups allow us to spot disease early and intervene if necessary. This reduces the risk of more invasive procedures later on

Children's Services

We recommend children are seen within 6 months of the eruption of their first tooth or by 1 year of age. Dr. Lawless worked exclusively with children in PEI for 2 years and is very accomplished in making them feel at ease. Parents, caregivers and friends of the patient are encouraged to accompany the child into the room and sit with them.

Fillings, Inlays, Onlays and Crowns

Tooth decay is caused by bacteria that produce acid. Traditional fillings were gold or amalgam. Nowadays, people often want tooth coloured fillings. We can assess your needs and offer what is best for your situation.

Dentures

Both full and partial dentures available. Lab constructed, strong, durable, comfortable and available in a variety of materials.

Extractions

Performed when a tooth can’t be repaired due to extensive decay or cracked from an injury. Wisdom teeth and crowding are also reasons for extractions.

Root Canals

Cavities or injury to a tooth can make the nerve sensitive and cause severe pain. In order to save the tooth a root canal treatment to remove the nerve is performed.

Guards

Custom made and lab constructed. These durable, comfortable guards offer protection to your teeth as well as easing discomfort in the TMJ’s.

Referrals

Our office has a selection of specialists we refer to for complex procedures knowing that you are being provided with the type of care we would expect for ourselves or family members. These specialists are experts in their fields and have enormously successful results.

A beautiful and healthy smile is our ultimate goal
for each and every one of you.

About us

Dr. Rachel Lawless has over 25 years of experience in dentistry and along with her team enjoys practicing in a family orientated, friendly, approachable modern dental clinic set in the beautiful village of Shawningan Lake.

Our team provides excellent oral care services of the highest caliber ranging from dental hygiene, fillings and cosmetic services to more complex extractions, crowns, bridges and dentures in a supportive and caring setting.  Living and working in a small community has allowed us to get to know our patients very well and we always extend the same level of service and care that we would to our own family and friends. 

We understand that dentistry is outside of many peoples comfort zone and we endeavour to ensure that you are involved in all aspects of the planning and implementation of your dental care.

Working with you

Not everyone is comfortable visiting a dentist. Perhaps there was a negative experience, a fear of the procedures, or a loss of control.

Avoiding the dentist is not the answer.

Dr Lawless is very accomplished in dealing with your anxieties. We will talk you through your visit and answer any questions you might have. We will not lecture you, but work with you to ensure that your teeth are the best they can be.

We also offer oral sedation for our patients who need that little extra.
