Pediatric dentists are specialists in treating the unique needs of children. A pediatric dentist has completed two to three years of specialty training beyond dental school. He or she limits the practice to treating the oral health needs of infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health needs.
Choosing a pediatric practice to trust with the health and beauty of your child’s smile is a critical decision. Making a positive first impression at the dentist can influence a child’s view of dentistry for the rest of his or her life, so it’s essential to make sure your youngster is comfortable with the doctor and staff.
Ideally, your son or daughter’s dental experience will be something to remember for the rest of their life. Make sure it will give them something to smile about.
