General Dentistry

At Dr. Pettigrew & Associates, we are Westboro Village’s choice for modern, full-service dental care in Ottawa, ON. Our patients trust our team with all of their dental needs, from routine cleanings and oral check-ups to preventative screenings and root canal procedures.

Life-Saving Oral Cancer Screenings in Ottawa

Oral Cancer Screening

 An early cancer diagnosis can be lifesaving, so we provide them at every check-up appointment. We also encourage patients to book an oral cancer screening at the sight of any persistent abnormalities on the mouth, lips, gums, cheeks or tongue. Symptoms of oral cancer can include red patches and sores, lumps, or leukoplakia (white patches).

Protecting Your Smile with Dental Sealants

Dental Sealants

The right dental sealant can prevent harmful cavities and tooth decay from wreaking havoc in your mouth. Our team at Dr. Pettigrew & Associates offers dental sealants for our patients in Westboro Village to protect their teeth and increase the longevity of a healthy, strong smile.

Convenient Dental X-rays in Westboro Village

Digital Dental X-Rays

A comprehensive dental x-ray allows us to get a better look at parts of your mouth that aren’t visible to the naked eye. These detailed medical images are included in dental exams as they play an important role in diagnosing oral health issues quickly and efficiently. Our dental office is fully equipped with x-ray technology that can image multiple areas of the mouth, face, and head. Click here to view a radiation exposure comparison chart.

Dental Hygiene Appointments

Regular dental hygiene appointments help you maintain healthy teeth and gums. At Dr. Pettigrew & Associates in Westboro Village, we encourage our patients to schedule regular dental cleanings. Our experienced dental hygienists will leave your teeth feeling so clean you won’t be able to stop running your tongue over them for the rest of the day!

Root Canal Treatments in Ottawa

Root Canals

When the root of a tooth becomes inflamed or infected, it can be uncomfortable and incredibly painful. Our experienced dental team can help save the infected tooth so you can leave our clinic with a pain-free smile—and an incredible sense of relief!

Careful & Comfortable Tooth Extractions in Westboro Village

Tooth Extractions

We do our best to keep your teeth in perfect health with preventative dental treatments, but sometimes teeth extraction is necessary to protect your overall oral health. We offer in-office wisdom teeth removal and tooth extractions due to advanced tooth decay, infection, or extensive damage to the teeth.

Cosmetic Dentistry that Makes Your Smile Shine

Cosmetic Dentistry

Your smile tells your story, and it deserves to be heard. Many people come to Dr. Pettigrew & Associates in need of cosmetic dental solutions to restore their self-confidence. Our Westboro Village dental clinic offers expertly-crafted dental crowns and veneers for your best smile.

Expertly Crafted Dental Crowns in Ottawa

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are a popular treatment option for restorative and cosmetic dentistry at our Westboro Village clinic because they look and feel like natural teeth. A dental crown is a cap that fits over a damaged tooth to strengthen your smile. We have your dental crowns custom manufactured in a professional dental lab to ensure a perfect match for your natural tooth.

Brighter, Whiter Teeth in No Time at All

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a popular, effective, and non-invasive cosmetic procedure that we are pleased to offer at our dental clinic in Westboro Village. With in-office teeth whitening services or take-home teeth whitening products designed by dentists, Dr. Pettigrew & Associates will have your healthy smile radiating confidence wherever you go!

Westboro Village’s Choice for Durable Dental Veneers


If you would like to improve the shape, size, or colour of your teeth, custom veneers are a versatile and long-lasting option. Bonded to the front of your teeth, these thin shells revitalize your smile and completely cover the surfaces of your front teeth.

Trusted Restorative Dentistry in Ottawa

Restorative Dentistry

Your smile is your first impression and a source of self-confidence. Both can be deeply impacted by tooth loss, tooth damage, and tooth decay. At Dr. Pettigrew & Associates, we are committed to restoring the natural beauty of your smile with skillful restorative dentistry services in Westboro Village.

Revitalizing & Protecting Smiles with Dental Bonding

Dental Bonding

Damaged teeth don’t have to doom your smile for good. Dental bonding is a simple and long-lasting way to restore damaged or decaying teeth. Our dental team in Westboro Village will match the bonding material to the colour of your teeth and shape it expertly into a strong and beautiful restoration.

Rediscover Your Smile with Custom-Designed Dental Bridges

Dental Bridges

Missing teeth can affect your self-confidence right away, but over time, they can also cause your teeth to shift. Dental bridges offer a durable and aesthetically appealing solution, allowing us to fill in gaps with an exact match to your teeth. Many of our patients with minimal tooth loss choose dental bridges to maintain healthy and straight teeth.

Expertly Designed Dental Implants in Ottawa

Dental Implants

Dental implants offer a permanent solution for tooth loss and are a popular treatment option at Dr. Pettigrew & Associates. Those who have suffered from tooth extractions or are missing adult teeth can restore their smile confidently with permanent prosthetic teeth, seamlessly matched to the shade of their natural teeth. We can perform dental implant surgery right here in our dental office—there’s no need to wait months to see a specialist!

Say Goodbye to Tooth Decay with Strong & Secure Dental Fillings

Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are a common treatment performed at Dr. Pettigrew & Associates. While a filling cannot reverse the effects of tooth decay, it does prevent further damage by filling the cracks in tooth enamel. Our focus on preventative dentistry means that we focus on delivering dental fillings for our patients in the early stages of tooth decay so that more invasive and expensive treatments aren’t necessary in the future.

Effective Inlays and Onlays at Our Westboro Village Dental Clinic

Inlays & Onlays

The topmost surfaces of your teeth can become damaged or compromised over time. If you are experiencing this issue, we might suggest inlays or onlays to effectively restore the chewing surface of your teeth, improving both the function and appearance, but without the need for a full crown.

Achieve Your Dream Smile in Less Time!


As orthodontic technologies advance, our dental clinic in Westboro Village is proud to offer the Invisalign “invisible braces” system. This is an excellent option for patients craving a perfect smile without the discomfort of traditional metal braces and wires. We are able to correct a wide variety of misalignments in the teeth and jaws with Invisalign. Find out if you’re a candidate today!

Crafting Healthy, Straight Smiles for Our Patients

Sedation Dentistry

As dentists, community members, and family members, we understand that taking care of the mental aspects of treatment is just as important as taking care of physical health. The thought of invasive dental work can be scary for some people due to anxiety, medical conditions or other health reasons. 

Soothe Anxiety Before Your Next Appointment

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas) is a common sedation technique for patients who experience fear or anxiety during dental procedures. This sedative is delivered through a mask that releases a colourless and odourless nitrous oxide gas to relax patients quickly.

Oral Sedation for Complex Dental Procedures

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation refers to an oral pill prescribed in advance, which we will typically instruct you to take about an hour before your dental procedure. The effects of oral sedation are stronger and longer-lasting than nitrous oxide sedation, so patients will need to arrange a ride home from the dental office after an oral sedation dentistry procedure.

Crafting Healthy, Straight Smiles for Our Patients

Dental Guards & Dental Appliances

Helping you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile through high-quality dental work is essential for our dental team, but giving you the tools to maintain those pearly whites is just as important. At Dr. Pettigrew & Associates, we can custom-design a variety of dental guards and appliances for your needs, from sports-specific mouth guards to sleep aids and more.

Curb the Clench with a Custom Night Guard

Night Guards

Many people clench or grind their teeth overnight, which can lead to muscle soreness and damaged or loose teeth. These effects worsen over time if there isn’t intervention. Our Westboro Village dental team will custom-fit a professional night guard to protect your smile from added pressures while you sleep. These guards offer comfortable, stable protection and stand up to regular wear and tear.

Keep Your Smile Straight with a Custom-Fitted Retainer


Once you’ve spent so much time straightening your smile with Invisalign or traditional braces, it’s very important to wear a retainer as recommended by your orthodontist or our experienced dental team. At Dr. Pettigrew & Associates, we can fit you for a comfortable retainer to help make it easy to maintain the configuration of your teeth for many years.

Keep Your Healthy Smile Safe on the Playing Field

Sports Mouth Guards

No game-time win is worth destroying your smile! At Dr. Pettigrew & Associates, we highly encourage athletes of any age, sport, or contact level to let us create a custom-fit sports night guard to protect their teeth during game-play. A well-designed guard can protect you from hard and soft tissue injuries and even from concussions.
