Pediatric Dentistry

As a parent, you want the best for your child. That includes healthy teeth and a pleasing smile. The American Dental Association recommends that a child visit the dentist by his or her first birthday, while baby (primary) teeth are emerging.

Pediatric dentistry specializes in dental care for kids’ teeth, gums, and mouths throughout the various stages of childhood: growing and losing baby teeth, permanent teeth coming in during grade school, and the teen years.

Pediatric dentists should always create a friendly atmosphere for children, and avoid words such as “drilling” that might scare kids. A fear of dentists can begin in childhood and set the course for adult avoidance of dentists. Going to the dentist should be a positive experience in childhood.

Pediatric dentists also educate children (and parents) about disease prevention, good eating habits, and home dental hygiene (brushing and flossing). If children can learn good dental habits while they are young, they can avoid a lot of problems as they grow older.
