Why a Pediatric Dentist?

Pediatric dentistry is the specialty of dentistry that focuses on the oral health of young people, and are the pediatricians of dentistry. Unlike general or family dentists, after completing a four-year dental school curriculum, two to three additional years of rigorous training are required to become a pediatric dentist. This specialized program of study and hands-on experience prepares pediatric dentists to meet the needs of infants, children and adolescents, including persons with special health care needs. While in residency, pediatric dentists are also trained in Sedation Dentistry and Behavior Management.

Some pediatric dentists like Dr. Christina Iannessa even go through additional training and programs of study to become a Diplomate (Board Certified) of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.

We are concerned about your child's total health care. Good oral health is an important part of total health. Establishing us as your child's Dental Home provides us the opportunity to implement preventive dental health habits that keep a child free from dental/oral disease. We focus on prevention, early detection and treatment of dental diseases, and keep current on the latest advances in dentistry for children.

Pleasant visits to the dental office promote the establishment of trust and confidence in your child that will last a lifetime. Our goal, along with our staff, is to help all children feel good about visiting the dentist and teach them how to care for their teeth. From our special office designs to our communication style, our main concern is what is best for your child.
