Pediatric Dentistry

 

Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric dentistry is a specialty dentistry that provides primary and comprehensive oral hygiene care for infants and children. Pediatric dentists are trained for the care of children’s teeth, gums, and mouth through the various stages of their growth.

In addition to the four years of required dental school, pediatric dentists complete an additional two years of residency training in dentistry for infants, children, and also teens. Pediatric dentists also understand how to examine and also treat children in ways that make them comfortable in conjunction with helping the patent feel at ease.
