Our pediatric dentists focus specifically on the needs of
children from infants to teenagers. After acquiring a
doctorate in dentistry, pediatric dentists receive an additional
two to three years of specialty training and are board certified by
the American Academy
of Pediatric Dentistry. Much of their additional training
focuses on building a positive association between children and
their dentist and is based in child psychology - as a parent, you
will see this in our child friendly environment and the
communication style of our pediatric dentists. That's why
kids love to visit our dentists!
Similar to your pediatrician, our pediatric dentists work in
coordination with other health care providers to enhance the
overall care and health of children. Pediatric dental
training is similar to the training of the other dental specialties
but is modified to the unique requirements of infants, children,
adolescents and those with special health care needs.
Our experienced pediatric dentists have had training with kids
of all ages in many different stages of oral development.
They give special attention to preventive dental care for all
children. At PERFECT TEETH™, we know good habits start early
- it is recommended that all children see the dentist by age
one. Taking good care of those baby teeth leads to healthier
kids, healthier teenagers and healthier adults. Proper care
of the baby teeth is crucial to permit a child to chew properly,
speak properly and maintain the space in the mouth for their future
adult teeth. Therefore, our pediatric dentists focus on the
care of baby teeth until they are lost naturally and transitions to
the care of the adult teeth. As your children grow, you may
hear your pediatric dentist give advice on healthy eating habits,
sealants, tobacco use, and piercings. Click
