What is a Pediatric Dentist?

A pediatric dentist is a dentist that has completed an additional two to three year residency at an accredited training program. These additional years of rigorous training are focused on understanding and meeting the special emotional, dental, developmental needs of infants, children, adolescents, and patients with special needs. This additional training ensures that a pediatric dentist can best address the changing needs of a child throughout growth and development, often circumventing painful or costly circumstances.

Like a pediatrician, a pediatric dentist limits her scope of practice to children so that the practice can be specially geared towards the needs of a child. Due to our focused practice, we are able to keep abreast of the latest technologies. The doctor and her pediatric dedicated staff are able to deliver dental care with behavior modifications and communication in a manner that makes the dental experience easier and positive for the young patient.

At Hacienda Pediatric Dentistry, we believe that establishing a trusting and positive relationship with our patients at a young age are the building blocks for a lifetime of good oral health. We hope that early and routine dental visits combined with personalized preventive measures will prevent childhood oral disease.
