Just as pediatricians are specially trained to treat your child’s medical needs, pediatric dentists develop special talents, skills, and knowledge that help them more effectively care for the dental needs of infants, children, and teenagers. Pediatric dentists are dedicated to providing the highest quality care and guidance to help children grow up preventing dental problems and establishing a positive relationship with their dentist.
Pediatric dentists complete a two-year residency program in pediatric dentistry after graduating from dental school. Some pediatric dentists, like Dr. Nichols and Dr. Milot, even complete a rigorous certification process to become board certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. All of this extra training can make sure your child receives the quality dental care they deserve, and you expect. This special training also better prepares pediatric dentists to treat patients with special medical or behavioral conditions.
