What is a Pediatric Dentist?

A Pediatric dentist is a dental specialist who only treats kids. After completing 4 years of dental school, each of us goes back to school for an additional 2-3 years where we learn everything there is to know about the dental health of infants, children and adolescents.

The very young, pre-teens and teenagers all need individualized approaches guiding their behaviour, following their dental growth and development, and helping them avoid future dental problems. The pediatric dentist is the dental specialist best qualified to meet these needs.
