Importance of Choosing a Pediatric Dentist Over a General Dentist

Little girl in dental chairMost parents know all the reasons why they should be taking their children to see pediatricians instead of general doctors. The same reasons are true for why your kids should see a pediatric dentist! We are skilled in dealing with the unique needs of children and can make sure your child’s oral development is right on track!

Pediatric Dentists vs. General Dentists

Pediatric dentists are required to go through two extra years of training once they’ve finished dental school. These two years are spent learning how to work with children and how to identify their unique dental health needs and concerns. We’re also trained to work with children who have extreme dental anxiety and special needs.

Here at Little Rockies Pediatric Dentistry, we think it’s important to make such every child we see feels relaxed and comfortable visiting the dentist. We know that it can be a scary experience, so we’re committed to making our office as anxiety-free as possible. Please let us know beforehand if your child has any fears or phobias regarding the dentist so we can do everything possible to help him or her feel at home.

Teenagers and Pediatric Dentistry

We are not only trained to work with children, but also with adolescents and their own specialized dental needs. The teenage years are when your kids may begin to feel self-conscious about their smiles. We also know the unique needs of teeth that are currently undergoing orthodontic treatment. This is also the time of life when your child is taking on more responsibility for his or her diet and oral healthcare routine. Our pediatric dentist will be able to provide a different approach to teaching your child how to achieve and maintain a healthy and beautiful smile.

To learn more about how a pediatric dentist can improve the dental health of your children, adolescents, and teenagers, please contact Little Rockies Pediatric Dentistry today. Our child’s dental office is located here in Parker, Colorado.
