Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric dentistry is a specialized branch of dentistry that focuses on providing dental care to children from infancy to adolescence. It is essential to start taking care of your child's oral health at an early age to ensure proper growth and development of their teeth and gums. While they are young, parents also have the opportunity to instill good dental habits in their kids, and regular visits to a pediatric dentist can help achieve that goal.

Welcome to Darcy A Wakefield Family Dentistry and Orthodontics, your go-to dental practice for exceptional pediatric dentistry services in Cambridge, Ohio, and surrounding areas. We understand that good dental habits start at an early age, which is why we offer comprehensive pediatric dental services that cater to the needs of young patients.

Benefits of Early Dental Care

Importance of Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric dentistry is essential for the overall health and well-being of a child. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that a child should have their first dental visit by the age of one or within six months of their first tooth eruption.

Additionally, kids need to visit a pediatric dentist at least twice a year. The earlier children begin receiving dental care, the better chance they have of avoiding dental problems and developing good oral hygiene habits that will last a lifetime.

Pediatric dentistry takes a preventative approach to dental care. Dr. Wakefield focuses on preventing dental problems from developing in the first place, rather than simply treating them after they occur. Pediatric dentists are also trained to work with children who may be anxious or fearful about dental visits. They use child-friendly approaches to make dental visits fun and stress-free, which can help children develop positive associations with dental care.
