Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?

By: Dr. Peter Markov, Owner and Kids Dentist at VK Pediatric Dentistry in Arlington, VA

Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?

Although many parents understand the benefits of taking their child to a pediatrician instead of a general doctor, sometimes it is not clear why taking their child to a pediatric dentist instead of a general dentist is just as necessary.

Choosing a pediatric dentist will allow your child to establish good dental habits that will last a lifetime.

What sets us apart?

Pediatric dentists are specialists that only treat children. They have received 2-3 additional years of training and have extensive knowledge and understanding of the oral health and development of children’s teeth. From your child’s first tooth until their teens, we help your child develop a healthy smile until they are ready to move on to a general dentist. Pediatric dentists are also trained to treat children with special needs. Pediatric dental practices are committed to providing children with an enjoyable, positive dental experiences. Too many children fear the dentist or have a poor experience which can lead to them associating the same negative feelings with their oral health. We aim to make the experience as positive, fun, and informative as possible.

At VK Pediatric Dentistry, we are proud to specialize in pediatric dentistry. We believe in starting children off right when it comes to their dental health. Not only do we want each visit to be educational, but we also do our best to ensure your kids have a great time when they’re with us! Our goal is to make our practice fun and inviting. We hope you’ll let us show you how we accomplish this!
