Why choose a pediatric dentist?
Like pediatricians, pediatric dentists are specifically trained to care for children. Pediatric dentists receive an additional two to three years of training that prepares them to meet the needs of children from infancy through early adulthood.
What is a dental home?
A dental home is a continuous relationship between a dental professional and the child. It is includes comprehensive dental care delivered in a continuously accessible and family-centered manner. Every child should establish a dental home by 12 months of age. Establishing a dental home early promotes early prevention and intervention that may keep children free of dental disease
