Pediatric dentists are the pediatricians of dentistry. A pediatric dentist completes two to three years specialty training following dental school and limits his/her practice to treating children. Pediatric dentists are primary and specialty oral care providers for infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health needs. Because of this specialized training and commitment to comprehensive oral health, many parents choose a pediatric dentist to treat their kids.
Children should visit the dentist by their first birthday. It is important that your child's newly-erupted teeth (erupting at six and 12 months of age) receive proper dental care and benefit from proper oral hygiene habits right from the beginning. Getting to know your teeth is fun!
