Pediatric dentists (also known as Pedodontists) are specialists in treating the unique needs of children. A pediatric dentist has completed 2-3 years of specialty training beyond dental school. By limiting the the practice to treating only the oral health needs of infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health needs, Pedodontists are able to focus all their training and experience on your children’s needs.
Choosing a pediatric practice to become your kid’s dental home and to trust with the health and beauty of your child’s smile is an important decision. A unique and positive first impression at your child’s dentist can influence how they view dentistry and their mouths for the rest of their lives, so it is important to make sure your child is comfortable with the doctor and staff.
Pediatric dentists receive postdoctoral training in child psychology, behavior modification, and pharmacology. The American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD) require pediatric dentists to undergo yearly training and re-certification to stay current with the most recent developments in technology and patient care.
