While most parents understand the benefits of having a pediatrician for their child instead of simply a general doctor, it’s not often clean why a pediatric dentist is just as necessary and preferable over a general dentist. Choosing a pediatric dentist will ensure that the development is going as it should, along with establishing good dental habits that will last a lifetime.
What sets us apart? Pediatric Dentists only treat children and have 2 additional years of specialized education to earn our title. From kid-friendly office designs to our unique communication style, our area of expertise offers the best care for your child. Our goal as a pediatric dental office is to help all children feel good about visiting the dentist and teach them how to care for their teeth. We’ll even set up a “friendly visit” to help alleviate any fears your child may have. Pleasant visits to the dental office establish trust and confidence in your child that will set a precedent for dental visits later on. Pediatric dentists also have special training in helping children with special needs. We encourage you to reach out to us about your child’s unique situation.
What about teens? Adolescents require special attention too. In addition to orthodontic needs that are best addressed in the teen years, decaying or poorly situated teeth can make them more self-conscious. As teens take on more responsibility for their own diet, and as they adjust to busy schedules we often see a tendency to eat more unhealthy snack foods that can become a major part of their diet. A pediatric dentist also understands how to screen and treat wisdom teeth when they need attention. According to Dental Studio of Pasadena, wisdom teeth require extra care because they can easily become impacted and damage other teeth and gums. We provide a positive approach to restoring and guiding teeth and teaching preventive dental health care throughout the teenage years. Our ultimate goal is to make our dental practice a comfortable and inviting place. We hope you’ll let us show you how we accomplish that!
