Caring General Dentist in Halifax

dental office lobby

When looking for a dentist to care for you and your loved ones, it's important to find one that has all the services you need to maintain good oral health. At Santé Dental, we can help you achieve and maintain your ideal smile with our preventive, cosmetic, and emergency dentistry.

We chose the name Santé, meaning "health" in French, because your health is at the core of what we do. Led by our general dentists, Dr. Melanie Fredette, Dr. Mariette Chiasson and Dr. Eric Kriss, our team has served Halifax and the surrounding areas of Bedford and Dartmouth for years. We are proud to be able to provide care to our community's families, professionals, local artists, and students, with services available in both English and French. Find out what we can do for your smile, and schedule an appointment today!
