Why A Pediatric Dentist?
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry
defines pediatric dentistry as:
“Pediatric Dentistry is an age-defined specialty that provides both primary and comprehensive preventive and therapeutic oral health care for infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health care needs.” (2008)
What Is A Pediatric Dentist?
A pediatric dentist has an additional two to three years of intensive, specialized training after dental school, which focuses on the oral health of the child from infancy through their teenage years. In addition to their medical training, the doctors study behavioral techniques designed to ensure that every patient, from the very young, to pre-teens, to teenagers, experience a smooth, comfortable, and enjoyable visit. The doctor is also well trained in guiding the dental growth and development of the child (and parent), while helping them avoid future dental problems. The pediatric dentist is best qualified to meet these needs.
