The Pediatric Dentist
Pediatric Dentistry is an age-defined specialty that provides both primary and comprehensive preventative and therapeutic oral health care for infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health care needs.
The pediatric dentist is required to complete an extra two to three year residency program after dental school. They undergo extra training in growth and development, facial injuries, restorative, orthodontic, and preventive care, hospital dentistry, child psychology, and behavior management.
We have designed a unique environment that will make your child’s time with us a fun and rewarding experience. We invite you to view our website to learn more about the services and treatments we have available to start your child on a journey to optimum dental health here at the pediatric dental office of Drs.
