You might wonder if there’s really any reason to see a children’s dentist for your child. Does it matter? Is this just another title someone assumes or is it an actual field of specialization? In short, we can tell you that it is, in fact, a specialized field and that it does make a difference! As for the specifics, learn a little more.
They Give Out Stickers
If you bring your child to a children’s dentist, you can expect a wonderful experience (well, we can only speak about our own practice, which will ensure your child is smiling when the visit is through). We consider not only the clinical needs of your child but the experience through his or her eyes. Whether we’re speaking with them in a way that they understand, helping them feel comfortable, or handing out stickers for a special treat, the goal is always to promote a positive experience tailor-made for a younger perspective!
They Have Advanced Training
Becoming a children’s dentist (also referred to as a pediatric dentist) doesn’t mean that you just go to dental school and prefer to treat younger smiles. It means that in additional to dental school, a pediatric dental residency is also required. During this time, a dentist learns about this specialized field, which focuses on caring for your smiles, pediatric orthodontics, development, and more.
They Offer Children’s Treatments
When you bring your child to a children’s dentist, you can expect the stuff younger smiles need, such as dental sealants and fluoride treatments. This makes your life easier because you know your little one is getting all the preventive care possible for a healthy, growing smile.
