Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric dentistry is a specialty, and a pediatric dentist has an extra two to three years of specialized training after dental school. A pediatric dentist is focused on and committed to dental care for children from infancy through the teenage years including those with special health needs. The very young, pre-teens and teenagers all require unique approaches in dealing with their behavior, guiding their dental growth and development, and helping them avoid future dental problems. The pediatric dentist is specifically qualified to meet these needs.
