Whichever name you prefer, the focus of pediatric dentistry is the oral health of infants, children, adolescents, and persons with special health care needs. A pediatric dentist has an additional two to three-year training in a specialized program after completing a four-year dental school curriculum. Pediatric dentists are the pediatricians of dentistry.
As advocates for children, your child’s oral health is the top priority at our pediatric dentistry office in Havertown. Our goal is to establish a dental home for your child where preventive habits such as brushing, flossing and healthy diet are implemented early to keep your child free from dental caries and other oral diseases. We focus on prevention, early detection and treatment of oral diseases. The team creates a friendly environment that promotes confidence and trust in your child. In this positive environment, your child learns to take care of the teeth, fight tooth decay, and feel good about coming to the dentist.
