A Pediatric Dentist’s Key Role
A key role of a Pediatric Dentist is to help prevent tooth decay. Studies show that poor oral health in children can lead to impaired school performance and poor social relationships. Pediatric Dentists give advice on how to make your child’s teeth strong and the importance of healthy eating and other habits to prevent disease.
Also, Pediatric Dentists work to maintain your child’s “Baby Teeth” until they fall out naturally. The primary teeth are important for chewing, maintaining good nutrition, speech development and keeping appropriate space for the eventual permanent teeth.
Certified Pediatric Dentist
Becoming a certified Pediatric Dentist requires an additional two to three years of post-doctoral dental training—after earning a dental degree. Pediatric Dentistry focuses on establishing trust and confidence between the young patients and their dentist. A key component to pediatric training is in child psychology.
Our highly qualified providers use fun and easy-to-follow communication and have real talent for keeping patients calm and interested.
These amazing photos show a restoration Dr. Jensen completed. He was able to remove all the decay and then build up the tooth with filling material rather than resorting to a crown!
