How to Choose a Pediatric Dentist

How to Choose a Pediatric Dentist
How to Choose a Pediatric DentistDon’t let choosing a dentist for your children be a stressful decision. Many parents may wonder if visiting a pediatric dentist over a general dentist who treats adults is really necessary. And yes, we may be partial, but keep reading to understand the reasons that bringing your child to a pediatric dentist like Dr. Forrester can provide major benefits to your child.
Specializing in Children
Dental school is not for the faint of heart. There are a lot of hours, of studying, practicing, tests, homework, and more involved. But did you know that pediatric dentists go through all of that and then MORE school? It true!
After four years of school to obtain a dental degree, pediatric dentists undergo two additional years of training. During this time, they become experts in treating infants, children, and adolescents. Pediatric dentists receive advanced training to learn about your child’s oral growth and development from birth through age 18.
Fun Environment 
Pediatric dentists are experienced and trained in understanding a child’s comfort level, communication, and interests. We want every dental experience to be a positive one to foster a lifetime of good oral health. We do all we can to make your child feel at ease and happy when they are in our care.
