Dentists are licensed to practice dentistry on both children and adults - but pediatric dentistry is a specialized field that requires up to three additional years of schooling.
Doctor Teresa is a great teacher as well as healer. Many children learn their best oral hygiene habits from Doctor Teresa, including:
- Feeling comfortable in a dentist's office
- How to avoid tooth decay
- Facts and information in a way that is understandable for children
From infancy through the teenage years, pediatric dentistry focuses not only on proper oral hygiene habits, but on dental issues specific to children. Tooth decay is a chronic disease that is the most common among children - five times more common than asthma.
Your child's first birthday is usually the first time they should be brought in to see Doctor Teresa. We look forward to seeing you!
All kids get a great reward ,besides a healthier smile. Dr. Teresa gives out Toys for their cooperation in their dental health.
