Pediatric specialists are required to undertake an additional 2-3 years of child-specific training after fulfilling dental school requirements. The residency is not entirely technical; there is a heavy emphasis on child psychology. The result is a dentist that communicates effectively with children in a gentle, nonthreatening manner. Your children will benefit from the knowledge and expertise that comes with a specialist. Dr. Joe has been treating children exclusively since completing his pediatric residency in 2008.
Pediatric dentists deal with children all day, every day. This means they know how to make sure your child is happy, comfortable, and treated effectively. They are experts at examining children without being intimidating. The average child patient is upbeat and relaxed in a friendly and supportive pediatric atmosphere. The young patient knows that we are “on their side.” We genuinely enjoy treating kids and they “pick up” on this.

At a pediatric specialist’s office, all patients are kids. Being around other children allays fear and promotes a fun and happy environment.
Not all general dentists like working with kids. Pediatric specialists are the exception; we only like to treat kids. We entered this profession because it makes us happy and we’re good at it. Your child will benefit from our expertise.
