Pediatric dentists have two to three years of specialized training following dental school and treat children only, infancy through their teenage years. Our doctors are specially trained to ensure that early dental experiences help your child build confidence and knowledge, setting a great precedent for their future dental health.
Very young children, preteens, teens, and patients with special needs all need different approaches in dealing with their behavior, guiding their dental growth and development, and helping them avoid future dental problems. Pediatric Dentists are best qualified to meet these needs.
