The Benefits of Seeing a Pediatric Dentist vs. Your General Dentist

We know that your child is your top priority and that their dental health can’t be trusted to just any doctor. Dr. Linda and her staff are specially trained to provide pediatric dental care to infants, children, teens and children with special needs. Our knowledge and expertise means your child will get the advance care they need and deserve.

Ten Reasons to Trust Your Child’s Care to a Pediatric Dentist

1. A Pediatric Dentist has more training than a general dentist. Dr. Linda completed two additional years of dental residency training after graduating from dental school. She spent this residency learning about sedation, hospital dentistry and how to care for the specific needs of infants, children and teens.

2. Pediatric Dentists are around children all day, every day! Dr. Linda LOVES kids and has devoted her life to caring for children. She knows exactly how to make your child feel comfortable and wants them to enjoy their dental experience. Dr. Linda and her staff work hard to ensure the dental experience is never scary or intimidating.

3. Pediatric Dentists emphasize preventative care! Dr. Linda emphasizes the importance of early preventative care through oral exams, preventative cleanings and examinations, cavity and tooth defect repair, and prevention of gum diseases or other oral health conditions. In addition, she will monitor oral facial growth and the ever changing development of your child.

4. Pediatric Dental offices are designed with your child in mind! Our office is fun and designed specifically to make your child feel welcome and comfortable. The Hollywood-themed office includes a movie theatre waiting area, video game arcade, and dressing room style brushing station. Patients may select from a huge dvd library for a private screening on a ceiling-mounted hdtv during their treatment.

5. Pediatric Dentists provide a kid friendly environment. Children can be intimidated by a general dentist office which is usually filled with adults. Our office is always full of kids and the waiting area is designed for your child’s comfort and entertainment. Being around other children will help your child feel more relaxed and comfortable during their dental visit.

6. Pediatric Dentists are the dental equivalent to your children’s pediatrician. In the same way that parents choose a pediatrician, a specialized physician to fulfill their children’s medical needs, a pediatric dentist is a specialist for the specific dental needs of children. Dr. Linda will work in concert with your child’s pediatrician in monitoring growth and development.

7. Pediatric Dentists are a great resource for parents. Because she is a specialist in children dental care, Dr. Linda is an excellent resource for your questions. She completed additional education and training to ensure that she is knowledgeable and up to date on the latest pediatric dental advancements.

8. Pediatric Dentists are great advocates for life long dental health care. It is important that your child enjoys their dental visits so that they do not fear dental care as an adult. Dr. Linda’s mission is to instill a life-long love for oral health care and healthy habits to ensure your child has a beautiful smile to last a lifetime.

9. Pediatric Dentists care for your child’s need in house. Dr. Linda can perform a variety of treatments in her office and is specially trained to perform them on pediatric patients. Her expertise ensures that your child will get the specialized care they need by a pediatric dentist who best knows how to do it.

10. Pediatric Dentists LOVE kids. Dr. Linda chose pediatric dentistry as her focus because she truly love kids and caring for their unique dental needs. She is committed to your child’s well-being and overall dental health.
