What is Pediatric Dentistry?

Pediatric dentistry is the specialty of dentistry that focuses on the oral health of young people. Studies show that children with poor oral health have decreased school performance, poor social relationships and less success later in life. Children experiencing pain from decayed teeth are distracted and unable to concentrate on schoolwork. A pediatric dentist focuses on prevention, early detection and treatment of dental and oral diseases, and keeps current on the latest advances in dentistry for children.
Pleasant visits to the dental office promote the establishment of trust and confidence in your child that will last a lifetime. Our goal is to help all children feel good about visiting the dentist and teach them how to care for their teeth.

Infants And Children

The first dental visit should occur shortly after the first tooth erupts and no later than the child’s first birthday. Beginning tooth and mouth examinations early may lead to detection of early stages of tooth decay that can be easily treated. At the first visit we will present you with a preventive home care program, information on Early Childhood Caries, sucking habits, trauma and information on growth and development.

Adolescents

Appearance and self-image is highly important for adolescents; moreover teens eat frequently, and unhealthy snack foods tend to become a major part of their regular diet. We provide a professional, sensitive and caring approach to restoring and guiding teeth, and teaching preventive dental health care through the teen’s high school years.
