Why a Pediatric Dentist?

Pediatric Dentists are the “Pediatricians” of Dentistry.  They received an additional 2-3 years of training beyond traditional dental school to understand your child’s oral health needs to the highest possible standard.  Infants, children, adolescents and individual with special health care needs all require different approaches in dealing with their behavior, guiding their dental growth and development, and helping them avoid future dental problems.  As a specialist, a Pediatric Dentist is best qualified to meet these needs.

A “Board-Certified” Pediatric Dentist has voluntarily gone through a rigorous examination process with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD). The ABPD certifies a Pediatric Dentist based on standards of excellence that lead to high quality oral health care for infants, children, adolescents, and patients with special healthcare needs.
