Pediatric Dentistry is the dental specialty recognized by the American Dental Association which encompasses comprehensive dental care for all children, from infancy through adolescence. A children’s dental specialist is a practitioner who, after becoming a general dentist (often called a family dentist), has completed an additional two years of post-doctoral training in the recognition and treatment of children’s dental and orthodontic problems. Specialty education includes child psychology, behavior guidance, preventive techniques, restorative dentistry, interceptive and comprehensive orthodontic care (braces), and the treatment of children with special needs.
A thorough exam will be done to evaluate the health of your child's teeth, gums and mouth. We will evaluate your child's growth and development and check to make sure your child's oral development is on track. Our office will make child specific recommendations for the need of sealants, fluoride and other services based on your child's individual needs and habits.
We are trained to evaluate proper positioning of teeth and jaw structures, checking for the influence of any habits your child may have.
Pediatric dentists are the pediatricians of the mouth. They limit their practice only to children and have been trained to keep your child's teeth at their healthiest. They are trained to recognize and handle child specific dental issues. Their offices are built for children and staffed with personnel trained to work with kids. In addition, pediatric dental offices use instruments and equipment made just for children to make sure their visit is a positive and friendly experience.
Dr. Pham and his staff strive to make your child's experience safe, comfortable, educational, & fun.
