Why Pediatric Dentistry?

What is Pediatric Dentistry?

Pediatric dentistry is a type of dentistry that focuses on the overall oral health of kids. While we work with children as young as infants and toddlers, older children and teens can benefit greatly from a pediatric dentist. Our doctors are trained to give your child the right dental care at any age under 18.

What is a Pediatric Dentist?

A pediatric dentist is similar to a pediatrician. Pediatric dentists must take 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 take four years of college and four years of general dental school, but only pediatric dentists also receive two to three years of extra training in both children’s hospitals and dental schools. At 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.
