A pediatric dentist is one who has completed two additional years of dental education beyond what is required to become a dentist. This additional training is focused solely on understanding and managing the unique needs and problems that face pediatric dental patients. A pediatric dental patient and the tooth related problems that face them can be far different from those of an adult. Pediatric dentists also have additional training on the management of patients with special healthcare needs.
A child's visit to the dentist should be a happy one. Shoemaker pediatric dentistry goes above and beyond to create a kid friendly atmosphere to ensure their experience is as enjoyable as possible. From the colors, games, prizes, and even the equipment, everything is tailored with that in mind.
