Why a Pediatric Dentist?

s-pediatric1Pediatric dentists are dentists who have chosen to specialize in the care and treatment of infants, children adolescents and college bound high school students. Think of a pediatric dentist as you would your child’s pediatrician. As board certified pediatric dentists, we have received two additional years of specialized training at accredited hospital programs beyond the usual four years of dental school that general/family dentists attended.

Pediatric dentists have chosen to limit their practices to children and adolescents because we love treating children, all of whom are unique and bring to our practice individual dental needs. As experts in the changing needs of growing children, care and treatment of patients with special needs (including autism spectrum disorder, sensory disorder and developmental delay), interceptive orthodontics, and preventive care, we are your dental home for every child’s needs.
