Pediatric Dentistry

Children are special... So they deserve specialized dental care.

Pediatric Dentistry is the dental specialty that focuses on the oral health of infants, children and adolescents. Pediatric dentists receive two to three additional years of training beyond dental school, and are trained in child psychology, behavior control, growth and development and the latest techniques in introducing and providing orthodontics and dental care to children.

Because they specialize in children, pediatric dentists create an environment where kids of all ages will be comfortable. In addition, they employ specially trained staff members who know how to make children feel at ease in the dental office.

The fundamental philosophy of our pediatric dental practice is prevention. We understand the importance of establishing a good oral hygiene regimen early in a child's life, and we provide children with the necessary knowledge and treatment to maintain a healthy smile. This begins with teaching infants' parents proper methods of oral care, dietary control and the use of fluoride vitamins to strengthen the developing teeth.

Both of our local dentist offices have "prevention centers" where children receive instructions in oral hygiene including tooth brushing, flossing and rinsing. Each check-up appointment includes a visit to the prevention center to reinforce these lessons. We also provide advice about the use of topical fluorides, sealants, proper diet and control of kids' snacks that may lead to tooth decay.
