Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?

Why is A Pediatric Dentist Important?

Tiny teeth merit tailored care. Because children are still growing into their smiles, pediatric dentists focus on teaching children healthy habits for thriving, lifelong smiles. Dental anxiety stems from children not receiving comforting, specialized care at a young age. This discourages many adults to go to the dentist, putting them at risk for oral health problems that cause complex, costly issues. 

Committing to a pediatric dentist means you are gifting your child with a lifelong, healthy smile and empowering them with positive associations with the dentist.

Specialized Knowledge and Expertise

When it comes to your child's dental health, pediatric dentists are the real experts! They undergo specialized training and acquire in-depth knowledge about the unique dental needs of infants, children, and adolescents. From understanding the various stages of dental development to being familiar with common oral health issues that affect kids, they are well-equipped to provide top-notch care for your little one. With their expertise, you can rest assured that your child's oral health is in the best hands possible!

Early Detection and Prevention

Regular visits to a pediatric dentist enable early detection and prevention of dental problems. Pediatric dentists can identify issues such as tooth decay, gum disease, improper tooth alignment, and bite problems in their early stages. By addressing these concerns early on, more extensive and costly treatments can often be avoided.

Dental Education for Parents

Pediatric dentists not only treat children but also educate parents about proper oral hygiene and dental care for their kids. They can provide guidance on topics such as proper brushing and flossing techniques, nutrition for good oral health, and the importance of regular dental visits. This empowers parents to take an active role in their child's oral health and establish good dental habits from an early age.

Behavior Management

Pediatric dentists are skilled in managing the unique behavioral and emotional needs of children during dental visits. They create a child-friendly environment that helps alleviate anxiety and fear, using techniques such as positive reinforcement, age-appropriate explanations, and distraction methods. This ensures that dental visits are more comfortable and less stressful for both the child and the parent.

Dental Anxiety Management

Many children may experience dental anxiety or fear, which can make dental visits challenging. Pediatric dentists are trained to handle such situations and employ strategies to help children feel more at ease. They use gentle and compassionate approaches to build trust and confidence, helping children develop a positive attitude toward dental care.

Tailored Treatment and Equipment

Pediatric dentists use specialized equipment and techniques that are specifically designed for children. Their dental offices are equipped with child-sized dental chairs, smaller instruments, and technology suitable for treating young patients. These accommodations ensure that dental procedures are safe, comfortable, and appropriate for children.

Comprehensive Care

Pediatric dentists offer comprehensive dental care for children. They provide routine check-ups, cleanings, fluoride treatments, sealants, fillings, and other necessary treatments. They are also knowledgeable about orthodontic evaluations and can address issues related to oral habits like thumb sucking or pacifier use. Having a pediatric dentist ensures that your child's dental needs are met comprehensively and professionally.

Establishing a Dental Home

Taking your child to a pediatric dentist allows you to establish a "dental home" where your child receives consistent and continuous dental care. Building a long-term relationship with a pediatric dentist enables them to monitor your child's oral health, track their dental development, and provide personalized care throughout their growth and development.

My 6yo daughter and I had a good experience here with Dr. Babak. They were flexible with scheduling and they even put her favorite movie. He spent more time with us than I would generally expect a dentist to. He sees adults as well so it would be easy to get everyone's appointments done all at once. Would recommend!

Extremely friendly staff, state of the art tech, brand new office; timely service and focused on people and care, for a change and not business.

I have known Dr. Parsafar or "Dr.A"  since she started working with us. I enjoy everything about her dental practice and as a person especially her sweetness , kindness and thoughtfulness. I Would definitely recommend her and her office !!

After being referred to a different dental office for my daughter's teeth, my maternal instincts raised concerns about the initial diagnosis, which suggested sedation and a significant number of cavities. Opting for a second opinion, I consulted with Dr. Javidi, and I am incredibly grateful I did. Dr. Javidi instilled a sense of confidence and none of the previously mentioned concerns were present.

Given urgency of my situation, they gave me an appointment within 2 days. Super nice, fresh and fancy facility. Warm welcoming staff. Drs. Javidi and Parsafar were on top of everything and took care of my tooth quickly!

My mom went by to Elegant Dentistry for a cleaning and came back feeling very pleased with your experience! She will be booking any further appointments at this office, as she feels she found a great home dentist that made her feel very comfortable and also executed their job incredibly well!
