About Pediatric Dentistry
Pediatric Dentistry is the dental specialty recognized by the American Dental Association, which encompasses comprehensive dental care for all children, from infancy through adolescence. A pediatric dentist is a practitioner who, after becoming a general dentist, has completed an additional two to three years of post-doctoral training in the recognition and treatment of children’s dental and orthodontic problems. Infants, children, pre-teens, and teenagers all need different approaches when providing dental care and the pediatric dentist is the most qualified to meet their needs.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends a child's first dental visit should be scheduled when the first tooth comes in and no later than their first birthday. Establishing a consistent place for your child's treatment means your child's oral health care is delivered with a comprehensive, continuously accessible, coordinated and family-oriented approach.
We understand the trust that is involved with your little one. Our commitment to quality, compassionate care is what sets us apart.
