Why a Pediatric Dentist?
Pediatric dentists are the pediatricians of dentistry. Pediatric dentists have an additional two to three years of training at university pediatric facilities in addition to four year of dental school and four years of college study. Some pediatric dentists, like Dr. Kim, practice general dentistry before specializing, giving them a unique perspective. They learn how to deal with the behavioral aspects of children, how to make them feel comfortable, and to make the experience pleasant. Also, they are trained and qualified to treat special needs patients.
