Children's Dental Care Tips

What is a pediatric dentist?

“Pediatric dentists are the pediatricians of dentistry,” according to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD). Pediatric dentists complete 2-3 years of specialty training following dental school in order to focus on providing primary and specialty care for your children.

 

We have developed an office that is designed to fit your children’s needs from infancy through adolescence – including those children with special medical needs. More information from the AAPD: The Pediatric Dentist

 

What is preventive dentistry?

Preventive dentistry encompasses the proper practice of brushing and flossing, as well as the monitoring of fluoride levels, oral habits, and diet. With the cooperation of parent involvement and the use of needed sealants, orthodontics, and proper sports safety, your child will have a bright and healthy smile! For more information on specific dental procedures, please see our Common Dental Procedures below.

 

Why is preventive dentistry important?

Having a healthy smile is more attractive, which lends to building positive self-esteem in your child! However, having a healthy smile goes beyond the aesthetic. Children with healthy mouths are able to chew foods more easily and may be able to learn to speak more quickly and clearly. Also, by remaining disease-free in the mouth, children may increase their chances of better general health.
