Preventive and corrective dental care and oral health for children.
Pediatric dentistry or Children Dentistry is the branch of dental medicine that focuses on preventive and corrective dental care and oral health for children. A pediatric dentist attends primarily to infants and young children, and also adolescents.
A pediatric dentist is the person who attends to children’s dental health problems. A pediatric specialist would have undergone formal training from an academy of pediatric dentistry and knows the special care that needs to be undertaken while attending to children and their medical issues. Dealing with children follows a different set of rules than when dealing with adolescents or adults, and a good pediatric dentist will know how to relate to the children, and get his message across in a fun and educational way.
