Special Smiles Deserve Special Treatment: Finding a Pediatric Dentist

dca-blog_article-50_find-best-pediatric-dentist

Pediatric dentists are specialists who provide comprehensive dental and oral health care for infants, children, and teens. While your child may receive excellent care from your family dentist, a pediatric dentist has received advanced training that focuses on the specific needs of children, including those who are chronically ill or have special physical or emotional needs. A pediatric dentist may even be an ideal choice for adults who suffer from conditions such as Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, or developmental challenges. Find a pediatric dentist in Baltimore who will ensure that you get the most advanced treatment available throughout the various stages of your child’s development.

Find the Right Kids’ Dentist

With today’s technology, gathering a list of local providers is as easy as saying the words “Find pediatric dentist in Baltimore” to your smartphone, but it helps to understand the factors that affect the quality of your child’s care. Here are a few questions to keep in mind when you need to find a pediatric dentist.

  • Were your questions and concerns addressed in a respectful and reassuring way?
  • Do the dentist’s personality and manner make you and your child feel at ease?
  • Does the provider accept your dental plan?
  • Is the office staff friendly, prompt, and knowledgeable?
  • Will you be allowed to stay with your child during treatment?
  • Is the office environment kid friendly?
  • Is the provider a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry?
