Approach to Pediatric Dentistry
Specialists is a leading-edge practice that delivers
state-of-the-art oral health care to the pediatric population from
birth to throughout their teenage years. You and your child are
greeted with a warm and comfortable atmosphere that lasts throughout
your visit. We find this helps reduce any anxiety your child may
We Are On the
Cutting Edge of Technology
We utilize digital imaging and
digital radiography (x-rays) to minimize our patient’s exposure to
radiation by 90% in comparison to the conventional x-ray equipment.
Digital radiographs provide quality images that make it possible to
reduce the number of x-rays that we need for each child. Parents
and children can view the enlarged radiographs on the flat screen
monitors so that the communication with the dentist is more
efficient. We also offer a state of the art sterilization to ensure
your child’s safety.
We Have a
Staff with High Credentials
Every member of
our team that is involved in providing dental care for your children
is E.D.D.A (Expanded Dental Duty Assistant) certified. Their
specific duties include the ability to provide cleanings and fluoride treatments for your children,
sealants, taking x-rays, and assisting during sedations.
Environment for Our Parents and Children
While children are being cared
for, parents can enjoy the peace and comfort of our waiting area.
Sipping coffee from our coffee bar, reading material, and
complimentary wireless internet are available to make our parents’
visit as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We will also
provide play stations and other game systems for your children to
occupy their time while waiting in the back area.
We Are True
Many general dentists identify
their practices with the description of “Family Dentistry.” Most
parents are often unaware that general dentistry does not require
additional training and education beyond their four year graduation
from dental school to treat children. Pediatric Dentistry, on the
other hand, is recognized specialty which requires an additional two
year residency after graduating dental school. Pediatric dentists
are specially trained for the specific needs of children, especially
dealing with anxiety that many children may have coming to the
dentist. Dr. Hunt also specializes in caring for and treating
patients with special needs.
We believe all children deserve the benefits of
dental health and happy smiles.
