A dentist is a dentist, right? Not exactly. Each one is a trained professional with a license and degrees to prove it, but each one brings something unique to the dental chair. Those who have specialized in pediatric dentistry bring a special aptitude for working with children to the dental practice and usually make a nerve wracking experience go quite smoothly.
So to answer the question many parents ask - does my child need a pediatric dentist - the answer is a resounding ‘yes’.
The dentist you have entrusted your dental care to for decades may be wonderful with adults, but what kind of training does he or she have when it comes to dealing with children’s issues? Taking care of a young child’s oral needs goes beyond textbook dentistry and into knowing how to win their trust, put them at ease and teach them good oral hygiene techniques that they will take home with them.
A pediatric dentist has acquired these skills and more through class room education and perhaps postgraduate hands-on training in pediatric hospitals. Anyone who enters the field of pediatric dentistry will already have a disposition that will make them patient with children and not become agitated with a difficult child who needs an injection of anesthesia in their gum.
