What Is a Pediatric Dentist?
A pediatric dentist is a specialist who has extra years of dental training. Pediatric dentists provide oral health care to children from the time they’re babies, all the way through their teen years, and perform basic services such as routine exams, x-rays, and fillings.
If your child has serious dental problems—such as cavities below the gum line or special health conditions—you may want to take them to a pediatric dentist.
For general care, cleanings, or cavity treatments, a general dentist is a great option and usually much more affordable.
What Makes a Good Pediatric Dentist?
Aside from completing the necessary training it takes to become a pediatric specialist, a good pediatric dentist will:
Be skilled in working with children and make them feel at ease during any dentistry procedure
Educate parents on what their children need to do to maintain good dental health
Educate children on how to care for their own teeth
Encourage communication between the child, parent, and dentist so any concerns or issues are known and addressed
How Do I Know if My Child Needs a Pediatric Dentist?
Visit Kool Smiles to determine if your child needs a pediatric dentist. During your visit, we can let you know exactly what type of dentist your child needs.
If your child doesn’t need a pediatric specialist, our general dentists will ensure good dental care throughout the visit.
If your child does need to see a pediatric dentist, many of our Kool Smiles offices have pediatric dentists that are available to help. If your local office doesn’t have a pediatric dentist, we can refer you to a great one nearby.
