Like a pediatrician, pediatric dentists and orthodontists specialize in oral health for children from infancy through adolescence. Pediatric dentists also attend two additional years of specialized training in children’s behavior, growth, and development, which is why many parents turn to us for their children’s preventative and restorative needs.
As pediatric dentists, we are trained to manage pediatric oral conditions. Our specialty training has allowed us to develop a deep understanding for the care of children. Our office is committed to providing all aspects of dental care for your child.
When it comes to a child’s teeth, it’s easier and less costly to prevent tooth problems rather than fix them later.
Cavities don’t just happen-they progress as a disease-often developing in stages. If caught in time, this disease process can be stopped. Lack of saliva in your child’s mouth, enamel defects, elevated bacteria, and plaque on teeth are just a few of the advanced screenings that give us an enormous amount of information about your child and whether he or she is at high, moderate, or low risk for the formation of cavities.
Our team of dentists and hygienists use some of the most innovative approaches as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry to protect your child from cavities. New research, technology, and assessment tools are allowing us to go even further to assess your child’s risk for cavities and other oral issues.
