Pediatric dentist FAQS

What is a pediatric dentist?

Pediatric dentists specialize in children’s oral health maintenance. They receive an additional 2 to 3 years of specialized training in pediatrics, special needs, child psychology, and development.

Infants should be seen for their first dentist appointment around age 1, followed by semi-annual visits until adolescence. Visits may include a physical exam of the mouth, teeth cleanings, cavity fillings, and X-rays.

Pediatric dentists are able to refer children to orthodontists as they grow and permanent teeth come in.
