Pedodontics, or pediatric dentistry, is a specialty field within dentistry with the focus on primary and comprehensive care for babies, young children and adolescents. A dentist with this specialty completed 2-3 years of additional education and training to become licensed to practice in pedodontics.
The doctors and the oral healthcare professionals of Beautiful Smiles, located near you in Rego Park, want to educate their patients (really, their patient’s parents) on the specialty field of pediatric dentistry.
A pedodontist is to dentistry as a pediatrician is to the medical field. A dentist with the licensure in pediatric dentistry is trained in the complex and the specific dental needs of young people. These specialty needs include:
The equipment used during the exams of babies and children, and the products distributed after the exam, are designed for little mouths. There are different tactics used for getting children to learn to brush their teeth by the use of featured characters to keep the children entertained and interested.
The office décor is bright, welcoming and incorporates engaging murals. Games, a fish tank, magazines and puzzles specific to kids play an important role in reducing anxiety and uncertainty.
The alleviation of fear and anxiety begins at home. Below are helpful tips to prepare your child for their appointment that will work in conjunction with the dental staff.
