Why do I need to take my kid to a dentist with Pediatric experience?
Children are not small adults. Children need special and proper care to ensure they avoid any decay and disease which can cause a lifetime of pain and complications.
Infants start by getting their baby teeth within the first 6 months. By the time they are 6 or 7 years old, they will lose their baby teeth which then is replaced by their permanent teeth. Without proper care during this process, there is a possibility for tooth decay and disease.
