What is a Pediatric Dentist?

You may be wondering, “Why should I take my child to a pediatric dentist?” or “If I take my child to a general dentist, what’s the difference?”

A pediatric dentist is a doctor who has been specifically trained to treat the teeth of infants, children, and adolescents. A pediatric dentist undergoes an advanced two-year training program after graduating from dental school.

Pediatric dentists are passionate about children, want them to develop great oral hygiene habits, and help them enjoy their time at the dentist. Your children deserve gentle, customized care from a dental team that loves children and has considerable experience working with younger patients.

Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?

During their additional training, pediatric dentists learn about child psychology and child growth and development. Pediatric dentists know how to implement forms of orthodontics, sedation dentistry, and other dental techniques that are different for children than for adults.

They also know how to talk to children and how to make them feel more comfortable.

Not every dentist is a qualified pediatric dentist. Choose the dentist who specifically knows how to give young patients effective dental care.
