How Long Does it Take To Become a Pediatric Dentist?
Pediatric dentistry is the specialty of dentistry that focuses on the oral health of young people. After completing a four year dental school curriculum, two to three additional years of rigorous training are required to become a pediatric dentist. This specialized program of study and hands on experience prepares pediatric dentists to meet the needs of infants, children and adolescents, including persons with special health care needs. Pediatric dentists are concerned about your child’s total health care.
Can Pediatric Dentistry Help with Dental Phobias?
Dental phobias are often rooted in childhood, so it is essential that the child feel comfortable, safe, and trusting of the dentist from the outset. Pediatric dentists use sedation dentistry to help young patients relax during dental procedures.
