If you have younger children, you may be looking into sending them to pediatric dentists, especially if you feel comfortable with their pediatric doctor. In this video, a pediatric dentist, Dr. Emily Hahn, goes over some of the things that these dentists do. She states that your child doesn’t have to go to a pediatric dentist.
You can bring your child to your dentist, even, but if you want to bring your child to a dentist who solely focuses on children’s oral health, a pediatric dentist is right for you.
These dentists actually train for an additional two years, working exclusively with children. This can make sure they are ready to join a dental practice and work on children’s teeth. Since they focus on children’s oral health, they can give you a lot of great tips on how you can care for your child’s teeth. Of course, any dentists can tell you how to care for your teeth and your child’s teeth, but a pediatric dentist will give you a lot more specific tips and advice pertaining to children’s teeth.
