What Is a Children's Dentist?

A children's dentist is trained and qualified to prevent and treat the oral health issues of patients from birth to 18 years old. They are experts with extensive knowledge of a child’s mouth, teeth, and gums and how they will develop throughout childhood.

Generally, a children's dentist will provide:

  • Oral health exams, teeth cleanings and fluoride treatments
  • Diagnosis and treatment of misaligned teeth or improper bites
  • Early detection of dental health conditions caused by asthma and diabetes
  • Cavity removals and fillings
  • Teeth repair for dental injuries
  • Preventative gum disease management
  • Habit counseling (how to use a pacifier or deal with thumb sucking)

When Should I Schedule My Child’s First Dentist Appointment?

It’s common for many parents to take their child to a children's dentist after a dental problem is diagnosed – but this is usually too late.

A child can develop tooth decay and cavities when they are toddlers, and many often do. To instill good oral habits and detect dental issues early, it is recommended that parents bring their child to the dentist when they are around six months old.

  • Gives your child a great start towards a healthy and stunning smile
  • Eliminates the risk of oral complications progressing further
  • Builds your child's self-esteem and confidence in their smile
  • Works with patients of all ages, so they can keep their dentist as they get older
  • Provides personalized dental care and services

What Happens at My Child’s First Consultation?

The first step towards a strong and beautiful smile for your child will be an introductory consultation, which should be scheduled once their first tooth has come in.

Your child's first visit will include an examination from our very skilled and gentle Dr. Omid Barkhordar. During the exam, Dr. Barkhordar will carefully analyze your child's gums, jaw, and teeth (or tooth) for any existing or developing oral issues. Dental treatment is usually unnecessary at this stage of development and the first visit is primarily a way for us to become acquainted with you and your child and help them feel comfortable in our office.

No matter how many years go by, you can be sure that we'll be there to take care of your child's smile. To ensure your kid's dental needs are being addressed, we highly recommend you bring them in once every six months.

What Is the Difference Between a Children's Dentist and a General Dentist?

children's dentists perform the same dental treatments and procedures as general dentists, but the main difference is that children's dentists have training that allows them to handle situations in a way general dentists typically are unable.

Children do not respond to dental visits the same way adults do. Anxiety and fear of an unfamiliar setting can become far more exacerbated during longer treatments and children's dentists are able to.

How Much Does a Children's Dentist Appointment Cost?

Insurance companies will usually cover all or the entire cost of a children's dentist appointment. For those without insurance, Care Dental Center provides all patients with clear pricing as well as available payment options.
