The Differences Between General Dentists & Pediatric Dentists

Happy child in dental chair with thumbs upThe reasons you take your children to visit a pediatric doctor instead of a general practitioner are the same reasons you should bring your children to Piedmont Pediatric Dentistry instead of a general dentist. Choosing to bring your children to a child’s dental specialist will help ensure that your kids’ dental development is progressing normally and that your kids are learning good at-home dental hygiene habits that will last into adulthood!

Pediatric Dentistry & How It’s Different

A pediatric dental specialist like Dr. Naomi Lane has to go through two additional years of training after dental school. These extra years of specialized education allow pediatric dentists and their staff to better work with children and be able to identify and understand their unique dental health needs, risks, and concerns.

Here at Piedmont Pediatric Dentistry, our priority is to make your children feel comfortable about visiting the dentist so that we can best care for their dental needs. It’s important to us that your child has a mellow and low-anxiety visit to our office. Please let us know ahead of time if your child has any dental-related phobias and how we can help him or her to feel more comfortable.

To understand more about how a pediatric dentist can make a positive difference in your child’s oral health, please contact Piedmont Pediatric Dentistry. Our Greensboro dentist is located here in Greensboro, NC and also serves children from the Oak Ridge area.
