Why Pediatric Dentistry?

What is Pediatric Dentistry?

Pediatric dentistry is a type of dentistry that focuses on the overall oral health in kids. From infants and toddlers to older children and teens, our doctors are trained to give your three to five year old the right dental care in a comfortable environment.

What is a Pediatric Dentist?

A pediatric dentist is similar to a pediatrician, but with focus on your child’s teeth. Pediatric dentists must undergo additional training to understand the best ways to protect your child’s oral health. They also stay current on the latest technology and practices. All dentists must attend four years of college and four years of general dental school. However, only pediatric dentists receive two to three additional years of training in both children’s hospitals and dental schools.

What is a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist?

Board certified dentists choose to take extra steps to learn how to provide a higher level of care. To become certified, they must complete additional courses to stay current in the latest advancements in pediatric dentistry. All of our dentists are board certified or are board eligible, which means they are awaiting their final certification. At the Smile Shoppe Pediatric Dentistry, our pediatric dentists are specially trained to give your children the customized care they need. We love working with kids to create healthy dental habits for life. Why go anywhere else? For more information, click here.
