What is a Pediatric Dentist?

 

A Pediatric Dentist like Dr. Rex and Dr. Julie is a specialist dedicated to the oral health of children and the monitoring of their facial growth and development. Our office is designed for treating children from infancy through adolescence, as well as the medically and the physically compromised.

 

Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?

 

A pediatric patient not only has a different dentition than adults but he/she may have specific dental and behavioral needs that are unique to a child. These needs may include orthodontics, dental sealants, fluoride applications or home treatments, or just simply education in oral hygiene. In addition to treating existing dental problems, our office focuses on prevention through patient and parent education. We like to feel that you and your child do not come to our office to have their “cavities fixed” but rather to prevent them. Our office provides all of the educational tools necessary for our patients to enjoy a cavity-free future.

 

Establishing Your Child’s Dental Home

 

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry encourages parents and other care providers to help every child establish a dental home by 12 months of age. Establishing a dental home provides some key components to dental care for your child including...

 

  • Comprehensive oral health care including acute care and preventive services.
  • Individualized preventive dental health program based upon a caries-risk assessment.
  • Anticipatory guidance regarding growth and development.
  • Plan for acute dental trauma (emergencies).
  • Dietary counseling.
  • Referrals to dental specialists when care cannot directly be provided within the dental home.
  • Referral at an age determined by patient, parent, and pediatric dentist.
