What Sets Apart a Pediatric Dentist?

What Sets Apart a Pediatric Dentist?

If you are looking for a dental home for your family, why is it important to have a separate dentist for the kids? After all, there is a certain convenience to all going to a “family practice.” However, once you know the difference between a pediatric dentist and general practitioner, most parents will agree that they need to find a pediatric dental home for their children.

What Makes a Pediatric Dentist Unique?

Dental school takes four years to complete. After that is done, pediatric dentists take another two years of schooling. What is the focus of these additional classes? Pediatric dentists take courses that combine the study of the unique dental needs of infants, children, and teens. This includes training on how to work with kids who have special needs. Valuable hands-on experience is also obtained. All of this adds up to a dentist who is specifically qualified to provide preventative and restorative dental care for your children. Plus, they have all the same training as dentists for adults.
