 Kristen Finello with Parents.com recently authored an article on the importance of getting regular dental care for your child from a pediatric dentist. She not only defined the amount of training for this expertise, but also provided information on where to find a pediatric dentist, referencing not only our online tool, but the AAPD as well.

 

Unfortunately, not every area has practicing pediatric dentists. If that's the case where you live, ask other parents, neighbors, coworkers, or your child's pediatrician for names of family or general dentists they like. "Many general dentists enjoy treating children and are comfortable providing their dental care," says Edward H. Moody, Jr., DDS, vice president of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and a board-certified pediatric dentist in Morristown, Tenn. The article also provides questions for parents and caregivers from the AAPD on evaluating the office, as well as questions to ask yourself upon conclusion of the visit.
