3 Reasons You Should Choose A Pediatric Dentist

3 Reasons You Should Choose A Pediatric Dentist

MANY PARENTS ARE aware of the benefits of taking your child to a pediatrician instead of a general doctor. Surprisingly, not as many know a pediatric dentist can provide the same kind of specialized care for your child’s smile!

Our Office Is Kid-Friendly

From the moment your child walks in the door, we want to ensure they have a positive experience in our office. Pediatric dental offices are designed to be the perfect environment to put young minds at ease and calm any pre-visit jitters. From the waiting room to the examination rooms, each area of a pediatric dental practice’s office is meant to not only make a child’s visit comfortable, but fun as well!

Many pediatric practices even allow parents to bring their children in before their appointment so they can meet their dentist and become familiar with the office.

We Receive Extra Training To Better Treat Young Smiles

Pediatric dentists receive two to three years of additional training beyond dental school to learn how to care for young children. This added training helps us both learn how to better care for a child’s growing teeth and make them feel comfortable during the process.

Dental anxiety is common among children—especially if they’ve never visited the dentist before. Whether their apprehension is caused by fear of the unknown, a scary story told by a friend or older sibling, or a negative previous experience, we understand their concerns and are trained to work with them to offer the most enjoyable visit possible.

If your child is nervous about their visit, let us know! We can work with you to meet their unique needs. You can also watch this video to prepare for their first visit:

  1. It was mind boggling to learn that pediatric dentists receive two to three years of additional training beyond dental school to learn how to care for young children. My 4-year-old hates going to the dentist for checkups. Last time he went potty in the waiting room. I want him to behave so I will be sure to get a pediatric dentist that knows how to deal with him.

  2. It’s really cute that some pediatric dentists will let the children come early and meet the dentist and become familiar with the office. To me, parents should try to include their child when choosing a pediatric dentist. I’m worried about my daughter who doesn’t like to brush her teeth.

  3. My little boy tends to be nervous around all strangers, and I’m afraid getting him through a dentist appointment will be hard. We have been thinking about going to a pediatric dentist to hopefully minimize any tantrums. As you said, a pediatric dentist is able to cater especially to kids with the environment, special training, and treatment. I think a kids dentist will be great for my son. Thanks for sharing!

  4. In your article, you stated that pediatric dentists receive two to three years of additional training beyond dental school to learn how to care for young children. This added training helps us both learn how to better care for a child’s growing teeth and make them feel comfortable during the process. My family and I recently moved to a new city and my daughter has been complaining about a lot of pain associated with one of her teeth. I wonder what types of procedures would best help in this type of situation.

  5. My daughter is getting to the age where she could use a dental checkup. She is a little nervous for her first visit. I didn’t realize that a child dental service has received two to three years of extra training to ensure children are comfortable during the process. That’s something that should help my daughter feel better.
