Why a Children’s (Pediatric) Dentist?
A Pediatric Dentist is a specialist dedicated to the oral health of infants, children, adolescents and patients with special healthcare needs.
A pediatric dentist has an extra two years of specialized training and is dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teenage years, including studying child psychology, growth, and development. This knowledge gives the specialist an awareness of the specific dental and emotional needs of growing children.
They are also trained and qualified to care for patients with medical, physical, or mental disabilities. The entire focus is on your children; relating to them, fostering good dental health habits and instilling a healthy and positive attitude toward dental visits.
