Pediatric Dentistry

Specialists in pediatric dentistry focus on treating children. Children's developing teeth may require additional protective measures because their at-home oral hygiene habits are also still developing.  Common pediatric treatments include:

Most pediatric dentists also focus on building a positive relationship with their youngest patients. It is very important for children to feel comfortable with and trust their dentist. This will allow them to view dental visits in a positive light and minimize their risk of developing fears or anxiety associated with the instruments that are used. Allowing children to explore the office and ask questions is often encouraged, as is allowing parents to be present in the exam room.
