What is Pediatric Dentistry?


Two toddlers playing with their toys.The specialty of pediatric dentistry is dedicated to the oral health of infants, children, young adults, and patients with special needs. Children get their first teeth around 6 months of age, and start to experience their first loose tooth at about 5-6 years. With proper care and attention, children can have teeth which are healthy, and free of tooth decay and oral infections.

What training is required to be a Pediatric Dentists?

•  2 years of residency focused exclusively on the dental needs of young people and children with special needs

From evaluating growth and development to managing a young patient's anxiety, pediatric dentists have the knowledge and experience to address your child's dental needs.
