Why see a Pediatric Dentist?

 

First visit with the Pediatric Dentist

A Pediatric Dentist has an extra 2-3 years of specialized training and is dedicated to the oral health of your child from infancy through the teenage years. The very young, preteens, and teenagers all need different approaches in dealing with their behavior, guiding their dental growth and development, and helping them avoid future dental problems. A Pediatric Dentist is best qualified to meet these needs.


The additional training received by a Pediatric Dentist acquaints them with the most up-to-date treatments available for a wide variety of children's dental problems. A Pediatric Dentist also learns about the behavioral aspects of children such as how to make them feel more comfortable about the treatment that they are receiving and how to make the experience more pleasant and not as fearful. Pediatric Dentists also study child psychology so they can understand your child's needs from the child's perspective.


From the ambience of the office, to the caring and professional staff selected by our dentists, our entire practice is designed for your child. Additionally, our staff are trained and qualified to treat special patients, developmentally delayed, or physically challenged children. There are many areas of prevention and care that are unique to children which a Pediatric Dentist is specifically trained to take care of, and this is why you wisely choose a Pediatric Dentist for your child's dental needs, just as you choose the Pediatrician for your medical needs.
