What is a paediatric dentist?

Paediatric Dentists

Paediatric dentists are dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teen years. They have the experience and qualifications to care for a child’s teeth, gums, and mouth throughout the various stages of childhood.

Why use a children’s dentist

Paediatric dentists are trained to treat children’s dental needs specifically.  Just like you would choose to take your child to visit a paediatrician when they are ill, it is beneficial to take your child to visit a children’s dentist for their oral needs.

Paediatric dentists offer:

  • Dedication to the oral health of children from infancy through the teen years
  • Use of specially designed equipment for paediatric patients
  • Wide range of treatment options
  • Expertise in exam and treatment methods that make children feel comfortable.

It is important to understand that children are not just small adults, and selecting a Children’s Dentist will ensure that your child’s dental needs are sufficiently understood and met.

Children have different dental and behavioural needs than most adults and are not always able to be patient and cooperative during a dental exam. Paediatric dentists have the experience and qualifications to care for a child’s teeth, gums, and mouth throughout the various stages of childhood.

When your paediatrician suggests that your child receive a dental exam, you can have peace of mind that a paediatric dentist will provide the best possible care for your little one.

At Kitchener Street Dental, our dentists and staff at Kitchener Street Dental are trained in treating children of all ages and will work with you and your child to ensure they have the best dental experience suited to their age.
