Many people ask why should a parent/caretaker consider a board certified children’s dentist. A board certified pediatric dentist has elected to complete accredited training and successfully completed an examination process to assess a candidate’s knowledge skill and judgment regarding standards of oral health care for infants, children, adolescents and patients with special health care needs. It also reflects a value of lifetime learning and practicing pediatric dentistry with state of the art techniques and materials. This reflects an effort on the part of the practioner to provide the highest standard of health care for patients.
I welcome you to consider establishing a dental home for your child early on preferably by age one. A dental home refers to an ongoing relationship between our office and your family, inclusive of all aspects of oral health care delivery in a comprehensive, continuous, accessible, coordinated and family-centered way. As your child develops from an infant into an adolescent there can be challenging issues that we can address and help you make informed educated decisions regarding your child’s oral health care.
