Pediatric Dental Specialists
Pediatric dentistry is the specialty of dentistry that focuses on the oral health and unique needs of young people. Not all children’s dentists are specialists. Pediatric dentists are the pediatricians of dentistry.

Our specialized education consists of child psychology, growth and development, management of oral-facial trauma, sedation and general anesthesia. This specialized program of study and hands-on experience prepares pediatric dentists to meet the unique needs of your infants, children and adolescents, including persons with special health care needs.
