What is Pediatric Dentistry?
Children have different dental and orthodontic needs than adults. Pediatric dentists specialize in providing treatment for children, including infants getting their baby teeth, 6- and 7-year-olds who are losing their first teeth, and teens who may require braces or other treatments.
After 4 years at an accredited dental school, pediatric dentists must complete an additional 2-3 years of education in pediatric dentistry. At Clifton & Mauney, our experienced team has the skills needed to connect with kids and show them that having clean, healthy teeth is cool and fun!
