Parents may wonder why their child should see a pediatric dentist rather than the general dentist who treats older family members. With their specialized expertise and training, pediatric dentists are uniquely equipped to treat children for optimal oral health.
The dental needs of children differ significantly from those of adults, ranging from comfort with the dentist to the developmental timeline of the smile. Seeing a specialist who is particularly attuned to those needs is valuable for your child’s oral health.
If you want to learn more about the benefits of bringing your child to a dental practice that specializes in pediatric patients, give us a call and speak to one of our friendly, knowledgeable staff members or visit our office for a tour.
Building The Foundation Of Good Oral Health In Childhood
