In a simple way, a pediatric dentist does all of the same things your family dentist would do; however, these procedures are adapted in ways to suit smaller mouths and much more sensitive gums. Pediatric dentists are trained in helping, assisting, and treating children with special needs all the way from infancy into adolescence. Your child’s dentist will be able to make recommendations to improve or maintain you’re their oral health based on their medical history, health needs, activity level, and dental needs. Even though your family dentist is more than capable of helping your child they will not be equipped in truly understanding their needs. The entire staff in a pediatric office is trained to service your child in any way that they can, including how they interact with your child, and that is so important. Your child should enjoy going to the dentist and we make sure that they do.
