Being a pediatric dentist, we do an additional training. Most family dentists go to school for four years and then they're done, and they go practice family dentistry. But being a specialist, which a pediatric dentist is a specialist, 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. We have done extra training to make us more qualified to make it a better experience for your kids, and hopefully, that should be the goal of any pediatric dentist is to make dentistry a positive experience for kids. We really strive to do that in our practice. We don't want any kid to leave unhappy. We want to make sure that they're having a good experience here.
