Why Take Your Child to a Board-Certified Pediatric Dentist?

Why Take Your Child to a Board-Certified Pediatric Dentist?

The fact is that a pediatric dentist does not have to be board certified by the ABPD (American Board of Pediatric Dentistry) in order to practice dentistry on children. So why should you find a board-certified pediatric dentist for your kids rather than just taking your little ones to your dentist? Here are three reasons.

  1. Specializing in Children’s Dental Needs – The ABPD is the only board recognized by the American Dental Association for certifying pediatric dentists who specialize in providing oral care for children. When you take your kids to a board-certified pediatric dentist, you know the practitioner is up to date with the latest in children’s dental care.
  2. Dedicated Healthcare Professional – When you take your child to a healthcare professional who is willing to take the time and energy to renew a certification that is not required in order to practice, you know you are dealing with someone who cares about the profession and the dental health needs of children like It is always best to trust your kid’s oral care to someone who is passionate about being a pediatric dentist.
  3. Up-to-Date on Procedures and Practices – The medical field changes quickly, and that is true in the field of children’s dental health as well. Since board certification needs to be renewed every 2 years, you know your pediatric dentist is staying current on the latest preventative and restorative procedures.
