Children are not merely little adults – they have unique dental needs that require a particular approach. A pediatric dentist is committed to the oral health of children from infancy right through the teenage years. With experience and specialized training, they can provide exceptional care for a child’s teeth, gums, and mouth through all the stages of development.
Helping children feel safe and comfortable during examination and treatment is the goal of pediatric dentists. Going to the dentist should be a fun adventure! A pediatric dentist will use specialized equipment and techniques in an office setting designed and decorated with children in mind.
The specially trained team working with a pediatric dentist is skilled at managing a child’s curiosity, short attention span, fears, and apprehensions when it comes to visiting the dentist.
When dentistry is performed in a fun, child-centred environment – where patience is practised and curiosity is encouraged – a bond of trust is created between the child and dentist. Parents can relax knowing their child is enjoying optimal dental care in a safe environment.
