While oral health is important for everyone, children’s developing mouths – and their developing habits – make good dental care and oral hygiene even more important for them. That is why it is important to carefully select a child’s dentist. Pediatric dentists make a natural and excellent choice for this role because we are trained specialists in delivering high-quality treatment for children. Our education and training provides not only up-to-date information on the latest procedures, techniques and technology available, but more importantly, also training on how to deliver gentle, compassionate dental care to children.
Pediatric dentists study developmental psychology in order to understand how children think, with the goal of making the dental experience as positive and rewarding as possible. From the design of their offices to the tones of their voices, pediatric dentists fine-tune everything in their practice to be specifically geared toward children, and to make them feel comfortable and relaxed during their dental visits.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, recommends that your child see a pediatric dentist by his or her first birthday. By choosing a pediatric dentist, you can ensure that your children’s dental experiences are positive ones, and that you are helping them begin a life full of healthy teeth and good oral hygiene!
