The entire team at Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics of Sudbury is committed to providing exceptional dental healthcare to all our pediatric patients. Our fun, dedicated staff is focused on providing outstanding, compassionate care, using the latest dental techniques, products, and equipment. Our goal is to create a healthy future for our patients by promoting good dental health through education and motivation.
We understand that going to the dentist makes some children nervous. We provide a positive environment where children can be themselves, have some fun, and get to know the team. When this happens, trust is built, which makes going to the dentist a more enjoyable, relaxing experience.
Treating each child as an individual and putting their needs first does more than make your child feel comfortable going to the dentist. It also helps our team assess your child’s strengths so we can provide the best possible care. We understand that helping your child get acclimated to our team, office, and dental procedures is of the utmost importance.
The doctors in this practice believe that early prevention gives your child the best opportunity for health, growth, and general well-being. By developing a strong foundation in prevention through education, your child can enjoy a lifetime of healthy teeth, as well as a beautiful smile.
At Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics of Sudbury, our pediatric dentists are board-certified. A general dentist can treat patients. However, to become a certified pediatric dentist requires extra steps, including education, testing, and licensure.
For one thing, children tend to be more comfortable in environments that are designed with them in mind. To them, a general dentist office may seem sterile, cold, and scary, when it is simply clean and professional. When a child walks into a pediatric dental office and sees the cool toys, prizes, and fish tank, they’re more likely to feel at ease.
The specialized training a pediatric dentist receives helps them provide your child with the best care possible for their unique needs, including behavioral guidance techniques to keep kids calm.
Our pediatric dentists are also trained to care for children with special needs, including offering hospital dentistry under sedation when necessary.
We view ourselves as partners with parents. We take care of the child’s needs while they’re in our office and provide education that helps the parents take care of their child’s oral health at home. Together, we can help your child develop healthy dental habits that will help them avoid issues now and when they’re adults. Habits like brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits can help them avoid:
Additionally, when going to the dentist becomes a habit early in their life, they’re more likely to stick with it and see a dentist regularly as an adult – something else that will help them keep their teeth for a lifetime.
