How should you choose a dentist for your child? | Dental Treatment Guide

Most dental schools have prepared their graduates to provide dental care for young children although several dentists feel uncomfortable and less familiar when they are around infants and toddlers. Here are two ways of finding a dentist who enjoys caring for younger children

  • call the dentist’s office and ask them their opinion on what age a child should see their dentist. If the dental office says that you should visit the dentist as soon as the first tooth appears then you should consider this dentist
  • you should look for a pediatric dentist who specializes in taking care of younger children. Ask your family dentist for names of pediatric dentists, check the local phone book, or look them up on the internet. You can visit the American Academy of Pediatric dentistry as well.
