Finding a dentist to care for your little one’s smile is a very big decision. The dentist should make your child feel comfortable and want to take care of their teeth. To help you find a pediatric dentist that your family feels good about, follow this healthy advice.

Smart Ways to Find a Pediatric Dentist

Did you know that pediatric dentists have specialized training that makes them extremely skilled in the psychological, interpersonal, and developmental needs of children? They want kids to feel comfortable during visits, so many make their offices extremely family-friendly with a cheerful environment and an extremely patient staff. To find a pediatric dentist in your area, start with these sources:

  • Get professional recommendations from your child’s pediatrician and your own dentist.
  • If you’re moving, see if your child’s current dentist can offer a referral.
  • Ask other parents about their family dentists.
  • Talk to your neighbors and acquaintances about dentists they trust.
  • See if co-workers can recommend an affordable dentist.
  • Search the websites of dental societies, such as the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Dental Association.
  • If you have a child with special needs, find a pediatric dentist who is highly compassionate, patient, and experienced at handling special circumstances.

Play it Safe with an Office Evaluation

To see if family dentists are right for your family, you need to see their office for yourself. Arrange to meet the dentist, tour the office and speak with the office staff. During your visit, be sure to consider the following:

  • The family dentist’s training, experience, and interest in treating children
  • Membership in the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry
  • A positive, fun, upbeat office environment
  • Child-friendly offerings for children, such as toys, games, books, or kid-sized furniture
  • Convenient location and office hours
  • Emergency services and policies
  • Fees, payment plans, and insurance accepted, especially if you’re searching for an affordable dentist
  • How the dentist and office staff interacted with waiting children and their parents

If possible, try to visit numerous family dentists for a fair comparison. After all of this research, review everything you experienced and let your instincts lead you to the dentist who is best for your child’s smile.
