Paediatric dentistry has been around for hundreds of years. It is an extremely important part of dentistry as it sets children up for good oral health from an early age.
Paediatric dentists are highly skilled at working with children and taking care of their oral health. Many people choose to get their children started with a paediatric dentist from a young age to make sure their dental health is taken care of early and help prevent future issues.
Paediatric dentists are trained to treat children with anxiety, disabilities and other special needs. They are also trained to use oral and general anaesthesia for children. They will provide an individualised treatment tailored specifically for each child.
