Child Dentistry

Pediatric dentistry is the branch of dentistry dealing with children from birth through adolescence. Pediatric Dentists promote the dental health of children as well as serve as educational resources for parents.

It is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) that a dental visit should occur within six months after the presence of the first tooth or by a child’s first birthday. The AAPD has said that it is important to establish a comprehensive and accessible ongoing relationship between the dentist and patient – referring to this as the patient’s “dental home”. This is because early oral examination aids in the detection of the early stages of tooth decay.

Early detection is essential to maintain oral health, modify and eventually put an end to deleterious habits and treat as needed and as simply as possible. Additionally, parents are given

What is a Pediatric Dentist

Most families with young children have considered a pediatrician for health care needs that require age-based specialists, and dentistry is no different. Pediatric dentists fill a vital role in oral medicine; here are some answers to a few questions you may have about them.

What Does a Pediatric Dentist Do?

Pediatric dentists are professionals who have completed a specialized course of dentistry that caters to children who have special needs or otherwise need gentler care. The program consists of two to three years of further training after graduation from dental school. It includes hospital training, where they work with children who have more severe dental needs and emergencies, and training in numerous orthodontic teeth-straightening methods. Pediatric dentists work closely with pediatricians and general dentists, who refer select patients for this specialized dental treatment that requires this advanced training. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) is an organization of pediatric

Pediatric Dentistry

Recently, I was asked to speak on marketing and social media.  Our large group pediatric dentistry and orthodontic practice requires a solid marketing plan to keep the practice healthy.  We actually spend more time that I think we should on what is vaguely called “marketing.”

Seth Godin, guru of the marketing world, a while back recommended aspiring writers to “give away” their first book?  Really? I can see writers saying, “No way.  I spent thousands of hours of effort on this thing to just give it away for free”.  How can this work?  As he explains, you gain a following, you gain (deserved) notoriety as an expert and authority.  Then, when your second book comes out, you have a built-in audience.

We as professionals, usually view with disdain trying to “sell” our services.  We want to spend time on dentistry and patient care.  We are above such pandering.  Still, in

What is a Pediatric Dentist?

Pediatric 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.

Children begin to get their baby teeth during the first 6 months of life. By age 6 or 7 years, they start to lose their first set of teeth, which eventually are replaced by secondary, permanent teeth. Without proper dental care, children face possible oral decay and disease that can cause a lifetime of pain and complications. Today, early childhood dental caries—an infectious disease—is 5 times more common in children than asthma and 7 times more common than hay fever.

What Kind of Training Do Pediatric Dentists Have?

Pediatric dentists have completed at least:

  • Four years of dental school
  • Two additional years of residency training in dentistry for infants, children, teens, and children
