Does my child need to see a pediatric dentist?

Every child is different and requires special care to fit their own personality and needs. At Lyndhurst Dental Associates we evaluate the child’s needs once we have met the child and had an opportunity to introduce them to the dental environment. When parents and the dentist work together, oftentimes children with limited dental needs can be seen by their general dentist. If the child has more extensive dental needs or requires extra attention they may be better suited to be seen by a pediatric dentist. Our dentists work with the family to do what is best for the child and his/her family. We are fortunate to have some excellent pediatric partners in our area to refer you to if your child requires a pediatric dentist! We want all children to have a positive experience with the dentist at our office or elsewhere so that we can maintain and improve their beautiful smiles!
