Pediatric Dentistry is the dental specialty that focuses on the oral health and the unique needs of infants, children, teens and patients will special needs. The very young, pre-teens and teenagers all require different approaches in dealing with their dental fears and anxiety, guiding their dental growth and development and helping them avoid future dental problems. The pediatric dentist, who completes two or three additional years of rigorous training in addition to a four-year dental school curriculum, is best qualified to meet these needs.
Like a pediatrician, Dr. Brett has limited his practice to children. Because of this, he is able to keep current on the latest diagnostic and treatment procedures for young people. He is experienced in the areas of communication, behavior modification and other techniques used to promote a positive attitude toward proper oral health. Pleasant visits to the dental office promote the establishment of trust and confidence that will last a lifetime. Just as the pediatrician monitors development from infancy, Dr. Brett will evaluate your child’s dental condition regularly to provide the highest level of prevention and treatment.
