What is a Pediatric Dentist?

a pediatrician for the mouth

Pediatric dentists are specialists for children's teeth just like a pediatrician is a specialist for a child's medical needs. If you appreciate the care that a pediatrician can give for your child at a medical visit, why wouldn't you want your child to receive the same care for their dental visits?


Pediatric dentists are trained to teach children and families how to prevent cavities and promote a lifetime of oral health and wellness from infancy and beyond. Our  training prepares us to provide the extra special care that your child deserves in a caring and competent manner. Pediatric dentists receive two or more extra years of training beyond dental school that is focused only in care of infants through teens taking into concern their growth, development, psychological needs, and more. Not only do we see kids all day, but we understand kids, especially when in the dental environment.


We proudly promote prevention of disease, which is one of the reasons why we love to see kids so young. Establishing an early relationship with the dentist promotes a health mouth and a positive dental experience. Kids that start good habits early in life are more likely to maintain those healthy habits into adulthood. With so many good reasons to see a pediatric dentist, how can you say no?
