Pediatric Dentistry FAQ’s

What does a pediatric dentist do?

Pediatric dentists focus on treating children, starting when they are infants and ending when they reach adulthood.

Should my child see a pediatric dentist?

Yes, just as your child likely sees a pediatrician for their healthcare, it’s ideal for them to see a pediatric dentist for their dental care. We are specialists with advanced knowledge, training, and experience, making us better equipped to meet the unique needs of young patients.

When should a child first see a dentist?

Our child’s first dental visit should be around the age of 12 months or within six months of the eruption of their first tooth.

How often should children see the dentist?

Children should see the dentist every six months for comprehensive evaluations and dental cleanings. This allows us to identify minor dental issues before they become significant problems and prevents decay by removing the plaque and tartar deposits that cause cavities.
