Pediatric DentistryFAQs

Q: How is dentistry for kids different from regular dentistry?
A: Pediatric dentistry
(aka dentistry for kids or dentistry for children) is a specialized type of dentistry just for infants, children and teens. Pediatric dentists complete two years of specialized training in addition to regular dental school. Unlike general dentistry for adults, dentistry for kids focuses on proper care of baby teeth as well as permanent teeth, once they start to erupt. Pediatric dental offices are designed with kids' comfort in mind, too. From books, toys and DVD players to pillows, blankets and themed treatment rooms, every effort is made to help your little ones feel safe and cared for.

Q: When should I schedule my child's first pediatric dentistry visit?
A: The basic rule of thumb is by age 1 or by the time your infant's first tooth erupts.
