Why Choose A Pediatric Dentist For Your Child’s Dental Care

A young girl sitting in a dental chair holding a stuffed animal gives a dentist a high-five.

When it comes to our children’s health, we always want what’s best for them. This principle also applies to dental care. But with so many dental options available, how do you make the right choice? Why choose a pediatric dentist over a general dentist or family dentist who treats all age patients?

Here’s a closer look at the reasons why selecting a pediatric dental specialist is the optimal choice for your child’s oral health.

Specialists and Staff Are Well Prepared

Pediatric dental specialists undergo two additional years of residency training focused on children’s unique dental needs. This means they not only know how to treat young teeth, they also understand how difficult dental visits can be for children.

The staff at a pediatric dental office, like ours at Chicago KiDDS Pediatric Dentistry, are trained to make your child’s dental experience as pleasant as possible.

Small Equipment For Growing Smiles

One size doesn’t fit all, especially when it comes to children. Our pediatric dentists utilize equipment specially designed for children’s small mouths. This ensures that dental procedures are not only effective but also comfortable for young patients.

A Kid-Friendly Environment – Toys, Television, and Games

Traditional dental clinics can be intimidating for kids, and even some adults. When you walk into a pediatric dentist’s office, it’s a whole different story. At Chicago KiDDS Pediatric Dentistry, we provide toys, TV, music, and games to help kids feel at ease.

The office itself is also designed with children in mind, sporting bright colors and artwork. This fun-filled environment can make a significant difference in a child’s perception of the dentist.

Children Can Examine Tools and Ask Questions

Curiosity is in a child’s nature. Recognizing this, pediatric dental specialists often allow kids to examine dental tools and ask questions. At Chicago KiDDS, we pride ourselves on this hands-on approach as it helps demystify what we do. In turn, it allows kids to feel more informed and comfortable during their appointment.

We were recently in the Chicago area visiting family when my 5 yr old son chipped a tooth while playing with his cousins. My sister-in-law called Chicago Kidds (her kid's dentist) to see if they could see my son on short notice. Not only did they squeeze him in on what appeared to be a very busy day, the staff was very friendly and they did a great job fixing the tooth. Thanks Chicago Kidds, you guys are awesome!
