Pediatric Dentistry is a specialized branch of dentistry that deals with children from birth to adolescence. Needless to say, Pediatric Dentists have a more specialized expertise in treating dental problems of children and special children than general or family dentists. Pediatric Dentists are specifically trained in all aspects of growth and development, especially where the psychology of treatment is concerned.
The entire focus of a Pediatric Dentist’s practice is on young patients. A Pediatric Dentist can come up with a treatment plan that is more age–appropriate and needs–specific, and can execute the plan based on an expertise and proficiency on children’s habits, attitudes and emotions. The result is a better relationship with kids, fostering among them a healthy oral hygiene and a positive attitude towards dental health.
