Pediatric dentists deal exclusively with infants, children, adolescents, and individuals with special healthcare needs. They also have advanced training in the particulars of pediatric dental issues. Oftentimes, they are viewed as the pediatricians of dentistry. After completing 4 years of dental school, pediatric dentists receive an additional two to three years of training, covering topics such as child growth and development, anesthesia, and pharmacology. Their focus and additional training is on children and their unique needs.
At Little People's Dental, we are dedicated to the long-term oral health of your child. We accomplish this goal by involving children and getting them excited about the care of their teeth. We educate parents about oral hygiene techniques, diet recommendations, and the daily routines that they can do at home to help their children obtain optimal oral health. We also gently treat any dental disease that may occur and work to prevent new disease from occurring.
