Pediatric Dentistry in Southern Maryland
What is Pediatric Dentistry?
It’s an approach to dentistry that’s just for kids. Pediatric Dentistry is one of the nine recognized dental specialties of the American Dental Association (ADA). Pediatric dentists have an extra two to three years of specialized training after four years of dental school, and they limit their practice to treating children. Pediatric dentists are primary and specialty oral care providers for infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health needs.
Because the doctors and dental team work exclusively with children of all abilities and ages, making sure even your most reluctant brusher will have a great experience at the dentist.
Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist for Your Child?
From that first precious smile when your newborn melts your heart, your child’s smile lights up your world. Protecting that smile is just as important to you as protecting your child’s health. In fact, the two are closely linked. Studies show that gum disease and tooth decay can be linked to more serious illnesses, like diabetes. Giving your child a dental experience that will spark a lifelong positive relationship with brushing, flossing, and regular professional cleanings and care is what we always strive to do.
