Why should my child see a Pediatric Dentist?
Pediatric dentists are the pediatricians of dentistry. A pediatric dentist has two to three years specialty training following dental school and limits his/her practice to treating children only. Pediatric dentists are primary and specialty oral care providers for infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health needs.
After her residency Dr. Jackie went above and beyond and completed a rigorous written an oral examination to gain Diplomate status with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. There are currently only 11 Board certified Pediatric Dentists in Reno.
