Why choose a pediatric dental specialist?
Pediatric dentists are dental professionals who completed additional training to provide dental care to infants, children, adolescents and children with special health care needs. Their training program consists of three years of additional education after graduation from dental school, during which they are exposed to pediatric dentistry in depth. The program also includes working in hospitals and with children who need more severe dental treatment and emergencies. As pediatric dentists, we recognize that children are not simply little adults and we adapt our approach according to each child’s level of development.
