Pediatric dentists are dental specialists specifically trained to treat infants, children, and adolescents. Pediatric dentists must complete an advanced training residency after graduating from dental school that is at least two years in length.
During such residencies, doctors receive advanced training in restorative treatment specific to primary dentition, behavior management, child psychology, growth and development, hospital dentistry, interceptive orthodontics, sedation, special needs patients, and techniques to alleviate anxiety and build trust with both patients and their parents. This extensive training provides pediatric dentists with the knowledge and skills to provide a positive dental experience from a young age in hope of creating a lifelong commitment to excellent oral health.
At Kids First Pediatric Dentistry, we strive to provide a fun, kid-friendly environment for children of all ages. Drs. Tracy Bowden, Austin Bowden, and Margie Hernandez are highly educated and experienced pediatric dentists committed to helping young patients achieve optimal oral health through customized care. Your child can benefit from personalized dental appointments tailored to their age, dental needs, and level of health literacy. The aim of each appointment is to promote excellent dental health and establish a dental “home” for your child.
