One in five people fear the dentist, and this fear can prevent people from getting the care they need. When you’re a parent, it’s important to provide your child with positive experiences at the dentist’s office to prevent this anxiety from developing. By bringing your child to Smiles for Kids Dentistry & Orthodontics, you can establish a solid foundation of good oral health in an environment specifically designed with kids in mind!
What makes a Pediatric Dentist Different?
Pediatric dentists receive additional university training – 2 to 3 years – after completing their dentistry degree. This training helps dentists understand the specific needs of children, both physically and psychologically.
This means that our dentists have a much more thorough knowledge of the type of problems that most commonly affect children and how to treat them. We also understand how to relate to kids, eliminating the intimidation and fear that can sometimes come from a trip to the dentist.
Albuquerque Children’s Dentist
Our staff love kids! And because we’re children’s dentists, treating only patients under the age of 18, our facility is designed with kids in mind. With a modern, inviting atmosphere with bright colors, we’re a different kind of dentist’s office – and one that will make your child love visiting the dentist! Our offices include a kids’ movie theater in the reception area and in-chair HDTVs that serve as entertainment and a distraction.
