Pediatric Dentistry Q & A

What age is Pediatric Dentistry?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that a child go to the dentist by age 1 or within six months after the first tooth erupts. Primary teeth typically begin growing in around 6 months of age.

What is the difference between a pediatric dentist and a general dentist?

A pediatric dentist has two to three years specialty training following dental school and limits his/her practice to treating children only. Pediatric dentists are primary and specialty oral care providers for infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health needs.

How long should a child go to a pediatric dentist?

In general, pediatric dentists see patients from aged 0 to 18 year old. Like pediatric doctors, we specialize in taking care of young teeth, and even in the high school years, your child's teeth are changing. We recommend seeing a normal dentist after 18 years of age.

Can Pediatric dentists treat adults?

Pediatric dentists are trained to treat children who are disabled, chronically ill, or mentally challenged. Some conditions require specialized dental care which a pediatric dentist is experienced at giving. Because of this experience, they can also be helpful in treating adults with mental or physical disabilities.
