Pediatric dentists are specialists in treating the unique needs of children. Our pediatric dental specialists have completed several years of specialty training beyond dental school. They limit their practice to treating infants and children’s oral health needs through adolescence, including those with special health needs.
Children have special dental needs, from birth through their late teen years. These special needs require the expert care of a dentist specializing in children’s oral health and development. Pediatric dentistry at Lovett Dental Northside provides this specialized treatment, ensuring your child’s best chance for an attractive, confident smile.

If so, you’ll be pleased to learn about what Lovett Dental Northside has to offer when it comes to various services and treatments that are age-appropriate. Our children’s dentist office is the first office for kids that is associated with Lovett Dental Northside and other facilities.
Begin the Process of Dental Hygiene Early With the Help of Pediatric Dentistry
It’s important to bring your child to the dentist as early as possible. Even if you’re not worried about cavities or any other dental issues yet, it’s a good idea to have your little one become comfortable with the routine and establish proper hygiene habits from a young age. The American Dental Association recommends that you take your child to see a dentist between when their first tooth erupts and their first birthday. Though you may have anxiety about how the appointment will go, try to stay as upbeat and confident as possible, and the visit should go well.
Of course, there often will be some level of anxiety, especially for more complicated procedures and treatments with some pain involved. In certain instances, a child may be a candidate for receiving sedation before a procedure. Talk to your child’s dentist to determine which options are available, including the risks and benefits for each.

Keep an open mind, and learn as much as possible. It can be beneficial to do some research on your own and reach out with questions if you need further clarification.
Learn About Preventative Care to Help Your Child
You don’t want to wait until your child has tooth pain or some other urgent dental situation to bring him or her to a dentist. Preventative care will ensure the best possible dental health and overall good health for your child. It goes beyond knowing how to brush their teeth properly, floss, and use mouthwash. A quality dentist or dental hygienist will provide great dental tips and guidance on problem areas you watch out for and how to prevent cavities, broken teeth, and more. It’s also crucial that you schedule regular cleanings and X-rays to ensure that everything is as it should be with your child’s teeth and gums in terms of growth, shifting, and other dental matters.
