Dental Care

What is Pediatric Dentistry?

Like general and family dentists, pediatric dentists complete a minimum of four years of dental school. After graduating from dental school, dentists who want to specialize in children’s care have the option to undergo another two years of residency training. During this period, these future pediatric dentists see infants, children, adolescents, and patients who have special needs. It is through this work that dentists learn how to better treat younger patients who may be fidgety or hesitant during their dental appointment.

A Friendly and Comforting Environment

Chicago kiDDS is staffed by a friendly team of experienced pediatric dental workers. We know that early experiences with dentists can shape a person’s willingness to seek treatment throughout life, so it’s important to make a good impression. To help our visitors feel at ease, our office is bright, colorful, and child-friendly in every way. Before the checkup begins, patients are invited to look at the instruments and ask questions. Age-appropriate dialogue with the patient can go a long way towards helping them feel more comfortable in the dentist’s chair!

The Importance of Regular Exams

It is never too early to begin dental care! Primary teeth begin coming in between 12 months and 2 years of age. The majority of this first set will be replaced with a set of adult teeth by age 12. This first set of teeth is crucial because it provides an opportunity to help your child develop good habits. As your child grows, their dental needs and routines will need regular check-ins and adjustments.

Fighting Dental Disease

Even for young patients, dental disease can be pervasive. According to the CDC, roughly 20% of children aged 5 to 11 have at least one untreated case of tooth decay. Regular exams can help identify issues before they progress, emphasize the importance of daily care, and help keep children on track towards a future of bright smiles.

We Love Involved Parents and Guardians

As a premier kids’ dentist near Tinley Park, we welcome questions from parents and guardians regarding their child’s dental health. Most patients only visit their dentist twice per year, so parents must take help ensure healthy daily routines are being formed and followed at home. Your child’s dental appointment is a great opportunity to ask dentistry related questions that help you feel more comfortable and confident!

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!
