Why visit a pediatric dentist?

Just as a pediatrician is trained to meet a child’s medical needs, a pediatric dentist is trained and qualified to meet a child’s oral health needs.

Pediatric dentists are trained to:

•    Manage dental and medical problems unique to children.
•    Manage and guide oral growth and development.
•    Manage behavior and help children feel comfortable during dental visits.
•    Treat children with disabilities.
