Pediatric dentistry primarily focuses on children from birth through adolescence. The American Dental Association (ADA), recognizes pediatric dentistry as a specialty, and therefore requires dentists to undertake two or three years of additional training after completing a general dentistry degree. At the end of this training, the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry issues a unique diploma (Diplomate ABPD). Some pediatric dentists (pedodontists) opt to specialize in oral care for children with special needs, specifically children with autism, varying levels of mental retardation, or cerebral palsy.
One of the most important components of pediatric dentistry is child psychology. Pediatric dentists are trained to create a friendly, fun, social atmosphere for visiting children, and always avoid threatening words like “drill,” “needle,” and “injection.” Dental phobias beginning in childhood often continue into adulthood, so it is of paramount importance that children have positive experiences and find their “dental home” as early as possible.
Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, high-quality dental care. We understand that you, or your child, may feel anxious about visiting the dentist. We are sensitive to your needs, and it is our goal to make you feel comfortable visiting our practice while providing the best care possible. During the visit, your doctor will meet with you to discuss your X-rays, help you create your own individual treatment plan, and answer any questions that you may have.
Our Patient's health is our number one priority. We require all of our patients to be vaccinated.
We appreciate your understanding and are happy to answer any questions you may have.
Upon arriving for your child's first visit, please be sure to arrive early to fill out any forms if you have not done so already, please bring your insurance card, and make sure to acquire any records from your child's previous dental office.
