Pediatric dentistry is all about the understanding that children are not just small adults. They have unique medical and dental needs and oftentimes unique emotional needs. A pediatric dentist cares for your child’s dental health in the same way a pediatrician cares for your child’s general health. We have completed an additional two to three years of specialty training, receiving additional training in the prevention of dental disease, pediatric medicine, psychology, behavior modification, growth and development, dental emergencies, and pharmacology. We use terminology that is non-threatening and easy to understand, doing our best to keep your child calm and comfortable during their treatment so they can grow up with a positive view of dental health.
