What is a Pediatric Dentist?

Elliott dentalYou may be wondering, “Why should I take my child to a pediatric dentist?” “If I take my child to a general dentist, what’s the difference?” The difference between a pediatric dentist and a general dentist is found in the specialty training a pediatric dentist has received and the overall focus of the dentist’s team and office. Your children deserve gentle custom-care from a dentist who loves children and has considerable experience working with younger patients.

A pediatric dentist is a doctor who has been specially trained to treat infants, children, and adolescents. A pediatric dentist undergoes an advanced two-year training program even after they graduate from dental school. Pediatric dentists are passionate about children and want them to develop great oral hygiene habits and to enjoy their time at the dentist’s office.

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 the different forms of orthodontics sedation dentistry, and other dental techniques that are different for children than adults. They also know how to talk to children better and how to make them feel more comfortable.

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