Find a PERFECT TEETH™ Pediatric Dentist near you.

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 here to find a PERFECT TEETH™ pediatric dentist in Colorado, New Mexico or Arizona.
