Why choose a Pediatric Dentist?
Pediatric Dentistry is the dental specialty recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA) that compasses comprehensive dental care for all children, from infancy to adolescence. Pediatric dentists promote the dental health of children as well as serve as educational resources for parents.
A Pediatric Dentist is a practitioner who has completed an additional two years of post-doctorate training after dental school. The specialty focused training includes child psychology, behavioral guidance, preventative techniques and restorative dentistry. A pediatric dentist also received training in treating handicapped or chronically ill children as well.
