What is a Paediatric Dentist?
A Paediatric Dentist has a general dental degree just like your family dentist. In addition to this a paediatric dentist has an extra 3 years of specialist training making them experts in the field of children’s dentistry. A Paediatric Dentist exclusively treats children from birth to 16 years of age. They provide preventative oral care and comprehensive dental treatment for infants and children through to adolescences.
