Why a Pediatric Dentist

Why a Pediatric Dentist?

Pediatric dentistry is the specialty that focuses on the oral health of young people. Our office incorporates specialized training to offer the best dental service available to children in Central Oregon.

Two to three years of additional training is needed beyond dental school. This program of specialized study and hands-on experience prepares us to meet the needs of children from infancy through the teenage years. Pediatric dentists understand the growth and development of children, and are better able to treat patients in the most appropriate manner as they transition from a child to an adult.

Significant study is also devoted to the psychological aspects of guiding children through the dental experience. Pleasant visits to the pediatric dental office promote the establishment of lasting trust and confidence.

A pediatric dentist practices in a “kid-friendly” facility, has pediatric sized instruments, and is better able to guide children through a dental procedure. Since we’re a pediatric dentist office in Bend, OR and Redmond, OR, we serve the children of our community by approaching their dental care with these specialized skills.
