When it comes to finding the right dentist for your child, you have two choices: You can find a family dentist, or you can trust a pediatric dentist. But what is a pediatric dentist?

“A pediatric dentist is a specialist,” Dr. Rooklidge said. “We do two more additional years of training where we learn about child’s needs like growth and development, sedation, just patient management in general.”

At Dentistry for Children, we specialize in pediatric dentistry. We want to provide gentle, kid-friendly care. We also want to prepare our young patients with the skills they need to have great dental health for years to come.
