Pediatric dentistry is tailored specifically to the needs of children. After four years of dental school, pediatric dentists complete an additional two years of postdoctoral training with an emphasis on preventive dentistry, child growth and development, behavior management, patients with special needs, emergency oral care, and sedation. Pediatric dentists are dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teen-age years. As your child grows, his or her needs will change; each stage requires an age-appropriate approach to oral care. A pediatric dentist is the best-qualified professional to meet these needs.

Preparing your child for his/her visit
Preparing your child for his/her first visit involves simply telling your child a few days in advance that he/she will be visiting the dentist. If your child has any questions, answer enthusiastically. Being positive in your own attitude will go a long way to making your child’s visit a pleasant one. You can help your child view dental visits as an important part of growing up and being responsible for their own oral health.
Prevention of dental problems
Prevention of dental problems begins early in a child's life. Good oral hygiene habits and regular dental visits are integral parts of preventing problems. Our staff will form a partnership with you and your child to assist with oral hygiene instruction and dietary recommendations as well as scheduling regular exams and cleanings.
