Should I Take My Children to a Pediatric Dentist?

Your kids are getting to that age where you know they need to have their teeth examined. Like any other concerned parent, you want your children to have healthy and brilliant smiles.

This begs an important question: is seeing a general dentist sufficient or should you visit a pediatric specialist?

What is a Pediatric Dentist?

All dentists must complete the same basic level of education. Some choose to continue training in a specialized field, such as pediatrics. But even then, not all pediatric dentists have the experience of being parents themselves. Sometimes you want another mom or dad to share your concerns with.

Pediatric Dental Care at Michael Aiello, DDS

Dr. Aiello provides dental exams for children as young as a year old, even before all the baby teeth are expected to come in. Dr. Aiello firmly believes in starting kids off on the right path when it comes to their dental health. That’s why he likes to see them so early.

Most parents love the convenience of bringing their kids to the same dentist they see. Not only that, but bringing your kids to visit your dentist allows someone like Dr. Aiello to have more insight into your family’s healthcare needs and values. You get the personal touch that’s missing when everyone sees different doctors.
