What is a Pediatric Dentist?
Pediatric dentists are dentists that are dedicated to the oral care and oral health of children. Pediatric dentists care for children as young as infants and toddlers, through their teen years. Typically, pediatric dentists are well experienced in pediatric care, and have specific qualification to assist in the care of children’s teeth, gums, and overall oral care.

Children will start to show their pearly-whites as early as 6 months in age. This is the perfect time to get them on the path to perfect oral health. After a few years, typically by age 6 or 7, you can expect you child to lose their first set of teeth. It’s important that both parents and children understand the importance of oral care, which will prevent oral decay, and possible disease without it.
Quick fact: Did you know that infectious oral diseases are more common in children than asthma and 7 times more common than hay fever?
