What is Pediatric Dentistry?
According to the American Dental Association, “Pediatric dentistry is an age-defined specialty that provides both primary and comprehensive preventive and therapeutic oral health care for infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health care needs.”
Each of our doctors completed an advanced education residency program that provides them with necessary experience to deliver comprehensive primary oral health care and the services of a specialist.
An important part of our specialty is the infant exam. Thus, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children receive a dental examination by their first birthday. The American Academy of Pediatrics similarly recommends that children at risk be seen by the age of one. This provides an opportunity to implement beneficial health practices and to reduce children’s risk of preventable oral disease.
