Because a child’s smile is one of life’s greatest treasures
Why a Pediatric Dentist?
Why should you take your child to a Pediatric Dentist vs a General/Family Dentist?
A child’s oral health is an important part of their overall health. Dr. Garza has been specially trained to work specifically with children over several years. He and his team only work with kids – each and every day. As a children and teens only dental office, Floss Pediatric Dentistry is current on the latest advances in dentistry for children. Just as a pediatrician develops his or her special talents, skills, and knowledge for working with children’s overall health, a pediatric dentist does the same to more effectively manage a child’s dental health.
A pediatric dentist is a doctor of dentistry who has additional specialized training following dental school and limits his or her practice exclusively to the treatment of children and teens, including those with special needs. A visit to the dentist can be intimidating for little ones. The Pediatric Dental experience is designed to alleviate their fears – from the office design and amenities to the Dentist’s specialized training. Pediatric dentists attend a two-year pediatric dental residency program in addition to their four-year doctoral and undergraduate degrees.
