Protecting your child’s smile is important for their overall health. From the time that first tooth arrives, oral care is essential to protect those new teeth that will help create their adult smile. Your child’s teeth are more than a pretty smile – they are necessary for proper speech, chewing nutritious food and facial structure. Start your child’s oral health off right with regular visits to the dentist. At South Texas Dental, we welcome kids from six months old and up to our office in Garland.
Our pediatric dentists specialize in caring for children’s oral health. Most pediatric dentists receive two to three years of additional education and training over a general dentistry degree for their specialty. While any dentist can care for your child’s teeth, our pediatric dentists understand how to make your child comfortable and calm, communicating on a level appropriate for children. Our pediatric dentists focus on the special dental care needed for children’s teeth, giving your child the best treatments to promote a healthy smile.
