CHILDREN’S DENTAL NEEDS
Did you know your child should have their first dental check-up by their first birthday?
Pediatric dentistry involves the treatment of children and requires two to three years of additional training after dental school. This training focuses on the growth and development of children’s teeth, child psychology and management strategies, pediatric medicine and sedation and dental trauma treatment. Our pediatric dentists and staff at Dental Associates of CT are also fully prepared to care for children with handicaps or other special needs.
Each of our locations in Danbury, New Milford, Newtown and Shelton, CT has a special pediatric area, with a pediatric dentist and a staff dedicated to working with children. Because Dental Associates has general and specialty dentists at each location, our pediatric dentists have direct communication with other specialists, including the orthodontist. Our pediatric dentistry office area is a super child-friendly environment, with colorful graphics and an ample supply of video games, toys and prizes, along with a specially trained pediatric staff attuned to children’s interests, as well as their needs and fears.
What’s more, if the children in our practice need braces or other special services, these services can all be coordinated at one convenient, familiar location. Family appointments can also be arranged, so that busy moms or dads can have their dental work taken care of, while the kids are being seen at the same location.
