Why Choose a Board-Certified Pediatric Dentist?
When you take your child to the doctor, you most likely don’t visit your doctor and, instead, see a pediatrician who specializes in the clinical examination, diagnosis, and treatment of infants and children. In dentistry, there are also providers who specialize in the care of young patients. They are called pediatric dentists, and in order to become a pediatric dentist, one must hold a special certification.
What Is a Board-Certified Pediatric Dentist?
A board-certified pediatric dentist is a dentist who specializes in providing dental care to infants, toddlers, children, teens, and patients with special needs. A dentist must undergo a rigorous process of additional education and training, in addition to passing a set of qualifying and oral clinical examinations before they can become certified in pediatric dentistry by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD).
The Benefits of Choosing a Board-Certified Pediatric Dentist for Your Child
Many general dentists offer family dentistry and treat patients of all ages. While it might be convenient to visit one dental office for all of your family’s care, choosing a board-certified pediatric dentist for your children offers many benefits.
Accustomed to Treating Children of All AgesChildren’s dental care needs differ greatly from those of adults. Pediatric dentists are familiar with treating children of all ages – from infancy through young adulthood. This means they are familiar with children’s needs, fears, and insecurities at the dental office during all stages of life. We’re experts at meeting your children where they are, helping them create healthy oral hygiene habits, and adjusting their care as their needs shift throughout development.
