When it comes to your children’s teeth, Small World Dental in Staten Island, NY knows you are looking for highly trained professionals to provide the best care available.
Why a pediatric dentist over a family dentist?
A pediatric dentist is a specialist that deals with the oral healthcare of children from infancy through the teenage years.
A pediatric dentist has more training than a general dentist. They complete four years of dental school and two additional years of residency training for infants, children, teens, and children with special needs. This means more knowledge and more expertise for your children.
At Small World Dental, we recommend parents to make an appointment as soon as your child gets their first tooth.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that a child is seen by 6 months after his/her first tooth erupts or by 1 year old, whichever is first. We generally recommend scheduling check-ups every six months.
This frequency may vary depending on your child’s oral health.
