What We Do
A pediatric dentist is a specialist who has two or three years of extra training after dental school, to be able to provide the most up-to-date and thorough treatment for a wide variety of children’s dental problems including nursing bottle decay, tooth decay, traumatic injuries, and growth and developmental problems. They are trained and qualified to treat special patients who may have emotional, physical or mental handicaps.
An orthodontist is a specialist who has two or three years of extra training after dental school to be able to diagnose, prevent and treat dental and facial irregularities. Through this training, the orthodontist learns the skills required to manage tooth movement (orthodontics) and guide facial development (dentofacial orthopedics).
The very young, pre-teens and teenagers all need different approaches in dealing with their behavior, guiding their dental growth and development and helping them avoid future dental problems. Because the pediatric specialists and orthodontists are best qualified to meet these needs, many parents wisely choose a specialist to treat their children.
Many of our patients are healthy children whose parents want a specialist to provide them with the best possible treatment. Some of our patients are children who are afraid, or have had bad experiences with dental treatment in the past. Many of our patients are referred here from general dentists because they have special treatment needs. Some of our patients are medically compromised children who need special care.
We feel that all children are different and we treat them accordingly. Some scared children need only our doctors’ knowledge and a little TLC. Some other children, because of fear and anxiety, require extra help to cope with their treatment needs, so we offer Nitrous Oxide Analgesia, in-Office Conscious Sedation and general anesthesia at Robert Wood Johnson, Rugers University Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ.
