What Is A Pediatric Dentist?
We teach your children the importance of having clean teeth and the proper way to take care of their teeth.
In the same way that pediatricians are trained to meet a child’s medical needs, the pediatric dentist is uniquely qualified to protect your child’s oral health using the most advanced techniques, state-of-the-art equipment and materials, and all in our delightfully friendly and inviting treatment area. Pediatric dentists have an additional two to three years of hospital or university training after four years of dental school and four years of college study. Among these specialists, are pediatric dentists who are certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. Dr.Lam is among this select group and is, in fact internationally board-certified as well. This specialty training allows pediatric dentists to be uniquely aware of how a childs dental health relates to his/her growth and development. As a result, pediatric dentists can best treat your child by restoring dental decay, managing gum health, and using early orthodontic treatment to guide your childs dental and facial growth. Pediatric dentists are also specially trained to recognize and manage the many different behavioral temperaments of children. They have learned how to make children feel comfortable and how to make the experience pleasant. Finally, pediatric dentists also are trained and qualified to treat special needs patients of all ages.
