Selecting a dentist for your child is an important decision. Pediatric dentists know how to examine and treat children in ways that make them feel comfortable. As important as the technical training they receive, pediatric dentists spend much of their time learning that children have to be treated differently from adults. They also study child psychology so they can understand children’s needs from a different perspective.
From the ambience of the office, to the caring professional staff selected by the dentist, the entire practice is built around caring for the children. Pediatric dentists are dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teen years. They undergo an additional two to three years of post-doctoral training. During those two to three years, they also learn how to provide quality dental care to the physically or mentally disabled.
Pediatric dentists have the experience and qualifications to care for a child’s teeth, gums, and mouth throughout the various stages of childhood.
