What is it that makes someone a specialist in their job? One type of dentist that specializes in treating infants, children and young teens is a pediatric dentist. All dentists have completed dental school, and some choose to specialize in a particular field such as orthodontics or oral surgery. Pediatric dentistry is also a dental specialty. Our staff is trained in the art and science of taking care of children’s smiles, and out office is designed to be welcoming and friendly to children.
The American Dental Association suggests that you should schedule an appointment to see the dentist within 6 months of the appearance of the first tooth or by the first birthday. During that first visit, the dentist will examine your child’s teeth, gums, mouth and jaws, and talk with you about the best ways to care for your child’s oral health. This is also a great time for your child to get to know the dentist and her staff and to start becoming comfortable with dental visits.
