Why a Pediatric Dentist
Pediatric dentists are the pediatricians of dentistry. A pediatric dentist has two to three additional years of specialized training beyond their four years of pediatric dental school and four years of undergraduate studies. This specialized program prepares the children’s dentist to meet the unique needs of infants, children, and adolescents, including those with special health care needs.
We treat children throughout all stages of childhood, beginning by age one! Our services include but are not limited to:
Infant oral health exams
Preventive kids dental care
Repair of tooth cavities or defects
Nutrition and diet recommendations
Management of gum diseases and conditions
Habit counseling (pacifier use, finger- and thumb-sucking)
Our board-certified pediatric dentists and fun, caring team make it fun to go to the dentist! We realize it’s a privilege to care for your child, and we address pediatric dental care and education in a professional and gentle manner to ease our young patients.
Our goals are to help your child feel good about visiting a children's dentist, to establish trust and confidence in your child that will last a lifetime, and to educate you and your child while helping him/ her gain a future of confident smiles with fewer cavities and healthy teeth and gums.
We use child-friendly words to describe everything we do and we use encouragement and positive reinforcement to help children trust us and gain confidence in themselves.
We interact with our patients because we want them to know that yes we care about their teeth, but we also care about them as a person.
It is also important to remember that each child is an individual and his or her behavior is not always predictable.
