Why a Pediatric Dentist?
A pediatric dentist is a doctor of dentistry who has additional special training following dental school and limits his or her practice exclusively to the treatment of children, including those with special medical needs. A visit to the dentist can be an intimidating thing for little ones. The Pediatric Dental experience is designed to alleviate their fears – from the office design and amenities to the Dentist’s specialized training. Pediatric dentists have a lot of training! In addition to a bachelor’s degree and a dental degree, pediatric dentists complete a two or three-year residency program that includes specialty classes and on-the-job treatment of children with various dental needs.A child’s oral health is an important part of their overall health. This is why our pediatric dentists have been specially trained over several years to work specifically with children. Our team only works with kids – each and every day. As a children only dental office, Children’s Choice Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics is current on the latest advances in dentistry for children. Just as a pediatrician develops his or her special talents, skills and knowledge for working with children’s bodily health, a pediatric dentist does the same to more effectively manage a child’s dental health.
