Dr Dental – Child Pediatric Dentist
Question: My son is 18 months of age and I have been told that he should see a dentist for his regular dental check up. Yet I am not sure if he can go to our family dentist or if he needs to see a pediatric dentist.
Answer: This is a common question for parents to ask. For the same reason you do not take your child to your own internist, you take him to a pediatrician, you would want to take your son to a pediatric dentist.
Children are not miniature adults. Their bodies are very different, and so are their teeth. A pediatric dentist has expertise in those differences
