What Is A Pediatric Dentist?
The pediatric dentist
is a dental professional who has an additional two to three years of
specialized training after dental school and is dedicated to the
oral health of children ranging in age from infancy through the
teenage years. The very young, pre-teens, and teenagers all need
different approaches in dealing with their behavior, guiding their
dental growth and development, and helping them avoid future dental
problems. The pediatric dentist is trained in the psychology of
children and is best qualified to meet children’s needs. Pediatric
dentists are taught to recognize diseases that are typically
diagnosed in childhood years. Additionally, pediatric dentists are
further trained in sedation techniques, and if need be, can practice
advanced procedures in an operating room setting.
