Maria Gema Island,
This was my daughter's first time at a dentist. They did a great job! Had a great waiting room, they were playing Disney movies for the kids to watch. She also had a good technique to get my daughter to cooperative. Two thumbs up!
This was my son's very dental appointment at 2 years of age. I was scared more than him and the staff was really caring and thoughtful with their approach to my son. Dr. Benitez was upbeat and positive about showing my son and I how to brush his teeth. He cried a bit but that's because it was a new environment. I'm sure over time he will begin to understand the need for a dentist.
What is a Pediatric Dentist?
A pediatric dentist specializes in dentistry for children. They treat cavities / tooth decay, gum disease, crooked teeth, chipped teeth, and more. They provide preventive care, and work with parents to teach kids healthy oral hygiene habits. They also give parents and children information on home dental care, diet counseling, and changing habits that can damage teeth, such as thumb sucking.
