What is a Pedodontist or Pediatric Dentist?

A pedodontist (also known as a pediatric dentist) is a dentist that specializes in childhood dental health and care. If you’re unsure whether your child needs to see a pedodontist dentist, call your local Kool Smiles. We can help you determine what type of dental services your child needs.

Benefits of Pedodontist Dentists

Pediatric, or pedodontic, dentists offer a number of important services for your child. These dentists are trained to provide quality dental services that improve your child’s dental health.

These dentists offer a variety of services, including:

  • Education: Caring for a child’s teeth is different than caring for your own. Your child’s dentist can advise you on childhood dental health care practices like brushing, flossing, and proper nutrition.
  • Preventing long term problems: Your child’s dentist can advise you on potential long term problems, including early diagnosis of cavities and potential orthodontic issues which may require braces.
  • Preventative treatments: Regular cleanings and fluoride treatments can prevent problems often found in children’s teeth, like cavities and gum disease.
  • Repairing damaged teeth: Sometimes, your child’s teeth may get chipped, knocked out, or damaged. A pediatric dentist can help correct these problems.

There are many more reasons to find a good dentist for your kids, but how do you go about choosing the right one? Kool Smiles is here to help with your child’s dental health care.
