It is common for first-time parents to be unsure when to bring their child to see a dentist for an initial visit. Typically, the next concern is whether to choose a pediatric dentist or a general dentist. Ultimately, the decision depends on your child’s unique needs.
A pediatric dentist completes more extensive education focused on diagnosing and treating oral health concerns that affect children. A kids’ dentist in Teaneck or West New York, NJ, has additional years of training in the dental needs of infants, children, and teens. We’re happy to offer comprehensive children’s dentistry in a warm, comfortable, kid-friendly environment.
A children’s dentist provides the same treatments and procedures as a general or family dentist. Typical services rendered include cleanings, exams, extractions, and fillings. In certain cases, parents may want a dentist with specialized training who can cater to kids. Dr. Ro and Dr. Cantuarias at Complete Dental Works believe that a big part of children’s dentistry involves teaching parents and patients how to care for kids’ teeth properly.
To know which dental care provider is best for your child first requires a visit. After the initial appointment, parents can gain enough information to determine whether a general dentist or pediatric dentist is right for your family.
Not all general dentists are trained to treat children, but some dentists are able to treat patients of all ages. Dr. Ro and Dr. Cantuarias are dentists who cater to kids and keep them safe, comfortable, and involved during every appointment.
