What is pediatric dentistry?

Pediatric dentistry is the dental specialty dealing with children from birth through adolescence. A pediatric dentist is uniquely qualified to provide care for young patients, including those with complex medical needs. They receive an additional two or more years of specialized training after completing dental school, and they are required to pass a rigorous exam to become certified pediatric dentists. Our team at Family Dental Center provides pediatric dentistry and traditional dental services in the office.

Why should I take my child to a pediatric dentist?

There are many reasons to take your child to a pediatric dentist. One of the most important is that they offer specialized care for young patients. A pediatric dentist has experience treating children’s teeth, gums, and mouths, which can be different than adults. They are also trained in providing dental care for patients with special needs, such as those who require extensive medical care or have autism or ADHD. In addition to specialized care, pediatric dentists also offer a kid-friendly environment that can make visits less stressful for both parents and children.

What services do pediatric dentists offer?

Pediatric dentists offer various services, including routine checkups and cleanings, filling cavities, placing braces, and treating complex dental problems. They also provide education on properly caring for teeth and gums at home and recommend dietary changes to improve oral health. In addition, pediatric dentists often work with other specialists, such as orthodontists and pediatricians, to provide coordinated care for patients.
