It takes an additional two to three years of intensive training and residency to become a pediatric dentist in St. John's.
This additional time is needed to learn the skills to ensure that parents and their children are taken care of in a fun environment that will allow them to feel more at ease and encourage a great relationship with not only their dentist but also with their mouths!
While general dentists work great for adults, certain problems only occur in children, specifically where the growth and development of the mouth, face, and head are concerned. St. Johns Pediatric dentists can identify and help to remedy an issue before they become larger and much more costly.
It is recommended that parents bring their child in for their first dentist appointment before the age of one, and where a dentist can begin to teach lasting dental habits to help promote a beautiful, clean, healthy mouth.
But ... here’s what we hear frequently as well: "Why pediatric dentistry?" or “We’ll just wait until our kids are a little bit older, so they understand better why they have to go to the dentist.”
We know from experience that building preventative oral hygiene habits at the youngest age possible, will provide the best outcomes.
