Why a Pediatric Dentist Makes Sense for Children

As parents, we always look to do the best for our children. We work hard to find the best pediatrician, best school, best foods, etc. Yet, time again, we see that parents don’t realize pediatric dentistry is a specialty, just like your pediatrician. And, finding a reputable dentist is just as important. With this in mind, it is beneficial to know why a pediatric dentist makes sense for your child. Once your child’s teeth begin to grow in, it’s time to start the process of finding a top-rated dentist and scheduling appointments. Here are some reasons to consider a pediatric dentist for your child.

Fun Office Space

Let’s be honest, if it isn’t fun, kids don’t want to do it. That is why the environment should be fun and inviting. Tooth Fairy Smiles office is decorated with your child in mind. The colors are fun, we have toys, stuffed animals, and other things to keep children engaged. It isn’t just about keeping your kid preoccupied before the appointment, but also making them comfortable in the dentist chair. A fun office space makes it more of a destination than a chore. Overall, a bright, fun space is appealing to children and it makes them feel more at ease when arriving at a dentist’s office.

Specialized Training

Why a Pediatric Dentist Makes Sense for Your ChildAgain, just like pediatric physicians, pediatric dentists have specialized training. While a regular dentist is still qualified to treat children, there is something to be said about someone who does it day in and day out. With a pediatric dental visit, you can rest assured that your child is receiving dental treatment from a specially trained professional. Pediatric dentists are equipped with extra training and education that prepares us for treating only children. Not only will your children feel comfortable, but they will also receive loving care. Thus, making it easier for future appointments.

Sensitive to Needs

Because pediatric dentists receive specialized training, we are sensitive to children’s needs. Some kids require more reassurance to complete treatments while others are more open to accepting dental cleanings or checkups. At Tooth Fairy Smiles, we work with our parents and children to make sure every visit is a success. We also work to help educate our small clients on continued dental health while making education fun! It’s our mission to make your child’s experience as comfortable and as painless as possible.

Whether it is the first tooth, first cavity, or your first visit to a pediatric dentist, we are here to make you and your child’s visit a success. Contact us today to schedule an appointment. Our friendly staff is here to address any concerns about your child’s dental health.
