What is a pediatric dentist?

A pediatric dentist is a dentist who has chosen to receive additional training and certification in dentistry for children. The benefits of seeing a pediatric dentist include:

  • Additional knowledge and training to spot problems with developing teeth 
  • Experience and skill performing dental procedures on smaller teeth
  • Training to manage children's behavior
  • Understanding of how to safely use sedation in children
  • Experience that allows for better advice regarding thumbsucking, pacifier use, and other concerns that occur in early childhood
  • Understanding of how nutrition and healthcare are linked to proper tooth development

Parents today understand the importance of seeing a specialist who is trained in the care of children. Seeing a pediatric dentist is an important part of your child's overall healthcare plan.
