Why Take Your Child to a Pediatric Dentist instead of a General Dentist?

Posted .

In choosing a dental home for your child there are many factors to consider.  The most important consideration is to find a place where your child will be comfortable as it is a well-established fact that early dental experiences will set the tone for a lifetime of optimal oral health.

The most obvious difference between Pediatric and General Dentists is in the required training.  Pediatric Dentists undergo an additional two years of specialized training in pediatric care that General Dentists do not. Pediatric Dentists are also proficient in sedation and pediatric dental trauma. Additionally, Pediatric Dentists are trained to recognize orthodontic complications in young mouths as they develop.

One of the most recognizable reasons to choose a Pediatric Dental practice for your child is that the office environment is child friendly.  Pediatric Dental offices are geared to be welcoming to children in their decor and may have toys or televisions with kids programming.

Recognizing that a Pediatric Dentist is the optimal choice for your child is the first step.  In deciding which Pediatric Dental Practice to choose for your child’s dental home, consider a practice that is passionate about making every visit to their office a positive experience from the moment you enter the office until you leave.

Consider a practice that supports the community through family friendly events and educational programs, a practice that offers appointments around your schedule and is on call 24/7 for any emergencies.  When you take all these factors into consideration, Pediatric Dental Associates of Randolph is the obvious choice.
