Why a pediatric dentist?
Our pediatric specialists and staff love children and have the expertise to treat the dental needs of young children and young adults including those with special needs. We teach children the proper way to take care of their teeth; but just as important, they learn that going to the dentist can be fun.
What is a pediatric dentist?
In the same way that pediatricians are trained to meet a child’s medical needs, our pediatric dental specialists are uniquely qualified to protect your child’s oral health using the most advanced techniques…and all in a warm and caring environment.
Pediatric dentists have an additional 2-3 years of specialized training at a university or hospital in addition to 4 years of dental school and 4 years of college study. Our pediatric dentists practiced general dentistry before specializing giving them a unique perspective. They learn how to deal with the behavioral aspects of children how to make them feel comfortable and to make the experience pleasant. Also, they are trained and qualified to treat special patients.
We welcome all patients; from infants to adolescents to young adults including those with special needs.
We thoroughly enjoy working with our patients in the autism spectrum, their families and aides. It is rewarding for us and we strive to help the patients successfully accomplish the tasks involved in the dental appointment. Please feel free to discuss with us any of your concerns or issues about your child.
