|MANY PARENTS ARE aware of the benefits of taking your child to a pediatrician instead of a general doctor. Surprisingly, not as many know a pediatric dentist can provide the same kind of specialized care for your child’s smile!
Our Office Is Kid-Friendly
From the moment your child walks in the door, we want to ensure they have a positive experience in our office. Pediatric dental offices are designed to be the perfect environment to put young minds at ease and calm any pre-visit jitters. From the waiting room to the examination rooms, each area of a pediatric dental practice’s office is meant to not only make a child’s visit comfortable, but fun as well!
Many pediatric practices even allow parents to bring their children in before their appointment so they can meet their dentist and become familiar with the office.
We Receive Extra Training To Better Treat Young Smiles
Pediatric dentists receive two to three years of additional training beyond dental school to learn how to care for young children. This added training helps us both learn how to better care for a child’s growing teeth and make them feel comfortable during the process.
Dental anxiety is common among children—especially if they’ve never visited the dentist before. Whether their apprehension is caused by fear of the unknown, a scary story told by a friend or older sibling, or a negative previous experience, we understand their concerns and are trained to work with them to offer the most enjoyable visit possible.
If your child is nervous about their visit, let us know! We can work with you to meet their unique needs. You can also watch this video to prepare for their first visit:
