A pediatric dentist is a dentist who specializes in treating children through adolescence. A pediatric dentist receives two or more years of advanced, specialized education after earning their DDS degree in dental school. A pediatric dentist focuses on pediatric and adolescent growth and development, disease and prevention, child psychology and management, and all aspects of the highly specialized pediatric restorative techniques.
Some, like our doctors, also specialize in the care of special needs patients, such as people with cerebral palsy, intellectual disabilities and autism spectrum disorders. Pediatric dentistry emphasizes the establishment of trust and confidence in children with their dentists. Consequently, one of the main components of pediatric training is child psychology. This manifests itself in special office designs, different communication styles and an emphasis on teaching preventive dental habits to children in an effort to make dental visits enjoyable.
