Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist

Pediatric dentists are specialists in treating the unique needs of children. A pediatric dentist has completed two to three years of specialty training beyond dental school. He or she limits the practice to treating the oral health needs of infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health needs.

Choosing a pediatric practice to trust with the health and beauty of your child's smile is an important decision. Making a positive first impression at the dentist can influence children’s view of dentistry for the rest of their lives, so it’s important to make sure your child is comfortable with the doctor and staff.

Special Training:
Pediatric dentists complete an additional two to three years of specialized training after completing dental school.  This extra training is dedicated to oral growth and development of infants, children, and teens, as well as behavior management.  Dr. Witte’s pediatric dental office is designed with children in mind.  Along with video games, TV’s, bright colors, and our awesome train, our patients are rewarded with prizes and stickers at each dental visit.

Ideally, your child’s dental experience will be something to remember for the rest of their life. Make sure it will give them something to smile about.
