A pediatric dentist differs from other dentists in that he has been through additional years of rigorous training specifically for the treatment of infants and children. While all dentists receive essentially the same initial training, specialists such as periodontists and orthodontists receive additional education in their field, as do pediatric dentists. Our practice and our staff are geared toward meeting the needs of young dental patients.
When should your child have his or her first dental visit? The advice from the ADA is to schedule an appointment to see the dentist within 6 months of the appearance of the first tooth or by the first birthday. During that first appointment, the dentist will answer your questions about your child’s oral hygiene and perform an examination of your child’s teeth and mouth. We also want you and your child to become comfortable with our staff and office.
If it is time for your child to start seeing a pediatric dentist, Dr. Jonathan Konz will be happy to see you. To schedule an appointment for your child at Little Smiles in Ashburn, Virginia, call phone today. Our dentist and team are looking forward to serving your family when you visit our friendly, welcoming office!
