Why Choose A Pediatric Dentist?

A mother and daughter speaking with Dr. Pelley about her dental services.

Pediatric dentists have extensive training in the dental care of children.

Pediatric dentistry is the dental specialty devoted exclusively to children and adolescents. The mouth, teeth, and growing face and jaw of a child and adolescent are very different from that of an adult. Pediatric dentists, like pediatricians, receive two to three additional years of specialty training to expertly treat children's unique needs. These additional trainings are in areas including dental/facial growth and development, child psychology, behavior management, medical complications, orthodontics and children who have special health or developmental needs.

Why is it important for dental visits to be fun for children?

Pleasant visits with the pediatric dentist help a child establish trust and confidence that will last a lifetime. Our office is set up to specifically cater to children. Similar to your pediatrician's office, the instruments used, dental chairs, x-rays, etc., are smaller to meet the needs of smaller mouths. Games and prizes help ensure a positive and fun visit.

Please contact us for more information about Pediatric dentists.
