Pediatric Dentistry

/Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric dentists have two to three extra years of training upon completion of dental school. A pediatric dentist is specially trained to deal with oral health issues that are age-specific for infants, small children and teenagers.

In tandem with your pediatrician, a pediatric dentist can help parents guard the health of their children, in many different ways.

Dental.net’s PEDIATRIC DENTAL GUIDE covers what parents need to know about the development of their child’s teeth, proper at-home care as well as a look at just what a pediatric dental professional does and how she can help your child.
