What is pediatric dentistry?

Understanding that dental treatment for a child is different than for an adult, the pediatric dentist is trained to create a relationship of mutual trust with a child.

Why should I consult a children's dentist and not a general dentist?

The pediatric dentist is responsible for treating children between 1 and 12 years old, monitoring the growth of their teeth in a functional and aesthetic manner. It helps children, from an early age, to keep their teeth healthy and understand the importance of oral health.

When should my child see the dentist for the first time?

You should take your child to their first visit once the first tooth comes out. In the first consult, the child’s teeth, gums, and jaw will be examined and you’ll receive guidance on what type of diet and oral hygiene your child should follow.
