Much like pediatricians, our doctors are “specialists” but are considered primary care providers for children. Each of the doctors at Pediatric Dental Associates have had an additional two years of concentrated learning and training to provide dental care to infants, young children, teenagers and special needs patients.

Not only can the doctors of Pediatric Dental Associates treat dental disease effectively, they are best at anticipating dental issues and can guide a family to prevent many dental/oral diseases.

Where the pediatric dentist has an advantage over a general dentist is that he/she has advanced training in growth and development; diseases of the mouth specific to children; restoration of decayed teeth in children (with or without utilizing sedation or general anesthesia); and most importantly, strategies to guide families towards preventing dental disease.
