What is the Difference Between a Pediatric Dentist and a General Dentist?

Does your general dentist offer available services to patients of all ages? Do they claim to be a children’s dentist? If so, that is great, but there are likely questions or concerns you will have along the way that only a pediatric dentist can truly answer. To better understand why it’s best to seek the help of a pediatric dentist versus a general dentist, here are a few reasons:

  • Specialization in Pediatrics – While Dr. Rozas, Dr. Nahatis, and Dr. Compton all have their dental degrees, they also have advanced specialty training in pediatric dentistry. Completing residencies in the specialized field, they are all board-certified to provide treatment to infants, toddlers, children, and teenagers. This additional education and training make it possible for them to focus more on the growth and development of young smiles.
  • Solely Focused on Children – Unlike a general dentist who offers comprehensive care to both children and adults, Dr. Rozas and her team only treat kids. This makes it possible to remain solely focused on young patients.
  • Available Services for Special Needs – Many pediatric dentists are equipped and trained to administer treatment to young children with special needs. Whether it is a mental or physical need, we can offer unique assistance combined with a compassionate and gentle approach.
  • All About Fun – It’s highly unlikely that you will walk into a general dentist’s office and find kid-friendly activities. From games and books to an aquarium and movies, our dental office offers a fun and exciting environment for all kids.
