The dental setup of children is very different from that of adults. Hence, their requirements also differ significantly which must be taken into account when dealing with kids and minors. Usually, going to the pediatric dentist for a check up or a visit can cause anxiety in children; we all know how daunting it can be to visit the dentist as an adult; as a child with not much understanding of dental care, the fear can be even more overwhelming. Therefore, it is important that the pediatric dentist knows how to deal with minors, how to allay their fears and explain any misconceptions about oral health, and in general must make the young patient feel comfortable and at ease.
In the same way that pediatricians are trained to meet a child’s medical needs, pediatric dental specialists are uniquely qualified to protect your child’s oral health using the most advanced techniques, and all in our delightfully friendly open treatment area. Pediatric dentists have an additional three years of training at university after BDS.They learn how to deal with the behavioral aspects of children, how to make them feel comfortable, and to make the experience pleasant. They also are trained and qualified to treat special needs patients.
