What is pediatric dentistry?
A pediatric dentist is a specialist that deals solely with the oral healthcare of children through their teenage years.
Pediatric dentists have more specialized training than a general dentist. They complete four years of dental school and an additional two years of child-focused residency training during which they also learn about child psychology. This directly translates to better dental care for your child.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that a child is seen by a pediatric dentist by the time they’ve reached one year of age. We generally recommend scheduling regular checkups every six months from an initial visit; however, this frequency may change depending on your child’s oral health.
