Why a Pediatric Dentist?
Why should you take your child to a Pediatric Dentist?
A child’s oral health is an important part of their overall health. Dr. Windham-Wilder has been specially trained over several years to work specifically with children. She and her team only work with kids – each and every day. As a children only dental office, Children’s Dentistry at Stonecrest is current on the latest advances in dentistry for children. Just as a pediatrician develops his or her special talents, skills and knowledge for working with children’s bodily health, a pediatric dentist does the same to more effectively manage a child’s dental health.
A pediatric dentist is a doctor of dentistry who has additional special training following dental school, and limits his or her practice exclusively to the treatment of children, including those with special medical needs. A visit to the dentist can be an intimidating thing for little ones. The Pediatric Dental experience is designed to alleviate their fears – from the office design and amenities to the Dentist’s specialized training. Pediatric dentists have a lot of training! In addition to a bachelor’s degree and a dental degree, pediatric dentists complete a two-year residency program that includes specialty classes and on-the-job treatment of children with various dental needs.
