What are Pediatric Dentists?
Pediatric dentistry is a specific area of dentistry that specifically deals with the oral health of children. Pediatric dentists are required to take an additional two to three years of schooling after completing dental school to get certified in this field.
Most general dentists can provide the care that kids need throughout their growth and development, but pediatric dentists can help with developmental oral heath problems. Some issues a pediatric dentist might address include:
- Baby teeth not falling out or coming in at the expected times
- Cavities forming on adult teeth while still under the gums
- Developmental issues
At Kool Smiles, our general dentists perform most dental procedures like check-ups, teeth cleanings and procedures like fillings and crowns. After your child's first appointment at Kool Smiles, we can let you know if your child needs to see a pediatric specialist. Fortunately, many of our offices have pediatric dentists in-house.
Kool Smiles and Medicaid
At Kool Smiles, we believe that every child deserves access to high quality dental care that caters to their specific needs, which is why our offices are designed with kids in mind.
Almost all of our locations have playgrounds, games, and toys for children to play with while they wait. We also provide viewing rooms where parents can observe their children's dental treatment if they choose not to join their child in the treatment room.
Our goal is to make sure your kids get the dental care they need at an early age, so they can avoid serious dental problems later in life. To make that happen, give us a call today at 855-854-3621 to make an appointment. We look forward to seeing your kids smile!
