This is a question I get asked quite often, why do I need a pediatric dentist? It’s a great question and one I’m happy to address.
Many parents wonder if it is absolutely necessary to visit a pediatric dentist. These parents have often been visiting the same family dentist for years and want to take their child to the same dentist out of convenience.
While it isn’t mandatory to take your child to a pediatric dentist, it does make things much easier on you and your child in the long run. Pediatric dentists have specialized training that not only allows them to better treat your child, but also helps them to relate to the child on a personal level.
A family dentist will have attended dental school and graduated before opening a practice. A pediatric dentist, on the other hand, will have specialized training to be able to work with children.
The end result is that the pediatric dentist is better able to keep your child calm during appointments, which leads to an overall better experience.
You will also notice that the pediatric dentist office is more geared towards children. It will feature toys, games, and televisions, which help to keep kids calm and relaxed during their visits. Remember that the end goal is maximizing your child’s oral health and these dentists truly know what they are doing in that regard.
