What is a pediatric dentist?
The Pediatric Dentist is a specialist who is dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teen-age years. The very young, pre-teens, and teenagers all need different approaches in dealing with their behavior, guiding their dental growth and development, and helping them avoid future dental problems. The Pediatric Dentist is best qualified to meet those needs.
Pediatric Dentists have had special training, which allows them to provide the most up-to-date and thorough treatment for a wide variety of children’s dental problems. They are trained and qualified to treat special patients, who may have emotional, physical, or mental handicaps.
Pediatric Dentists also offer sedation, as a means to make treatment more comfortable for the young, apprehensive, or special needs patient. Because of this specialized training and commitment to comprehensive oral health, many parents wisely choose a pediatric dentist to treat their children.
