Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?

With more and more practices offering family dentistry to treat children and adults, a common question parents ask is “why should I choose a pediatric dentist?” The short answer is that Ridge Meadows Children’s Dentistry is better equipped to support the dental and emotional wellbeing of your child. Bad childhood experiences at the dentist can leave a sour taste in your child’s mouth that they will carry with them into adulthood. Start them off on the right foot with an experienced children’s dentist you can trust.

Children’s Specialists

It’s important to remember that while a dentist may offer family dentistry, that doesn’t necessarily mean they can provide the best care for your child. A pediatric dentist has received specialized training to provide expert care for your child’s developing teeth while supporting the emotional aspects of going to the dentist. This creates a foundation for your child to maintain excellent dental health into adulthood. At Ridge Meadows Children’s Dentistry, we specialize in behavior management and are better equipped to deal with the everyday concerns of a child than a general dentist. We have also been trained to work children and adults with special needs.

Reinforce Good Habits

Unlike some family dentists, we don’t just clean your child’s teeth, we take the time to talk with them to encourage good brushing habits and overall dental hygiene. We monitor growth and development of your children’s teeth to ensure that they are in good oral health standing and prepare them for the adult teeth years. We are able to catch early development anomalies and are trained in rehabilitation of children’s teeth to allow for proper spacing for adult teeth and bones. We work to create positive relationships with our young patients to ensure they keep coming back to the dentist regularly as they grow up. If you’re still unconvinced, your child’s first visit to Ridge Meadows Children’s Dentistry is sure to change your mind.
