Pediatric dentistry is the branch of dentistry dealing with children from birth through adolescence.
Pediatric dentistry, also known as pedodontics, is a specialty branch that focuses on treating young people. Pediatric dentists, also known as pedodontists, are dedicated to the field because they must complete the additional education necessary to provide primary and comprehensive care to babies, young children and adolescents.
A kid-friendly and welcoming environment is also key in a pediatric office. The special-sized dental equipment for exams is important. The exam room decor should be appealing to youngsters too, like brightly colored wall paint and engaging murals. Games, kids magazines and perhaps a fish tank in the waiting area go a long way toward easing uncertainty and apprehension.Make Appointment Now
