Pediatric dentistry focuses on the oral health of children, typically from infants through their teen years. Children begin to develop their baby teeth within the first 6 months of their lives. Then by the age of 6, they begin to lose their baby teeth and develop their permanent adult teeth. This is a crucial time period to ensure they develop good oral hygiene and receive proper dental care from a certified pediatric dentist.

Children often don’t possess the same patience and cooperation as adults, and thus require special treatment in the dental office. Additionally, the equipment used is designed specifically with children in mind.
