Our team at Carolina Pediatric Dentistry hears this question a lot. According to our friends at the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), pediatric dentistry is “an age-defined specialty that provides both primary and comprehensive preventive and therapeutic oral healthcare for infants and children through adolescence, including those with special healthcare needs.”
Pediatric dentists, such as Drs. LaRee Johnson, Clark Morris, Gentry Byrd, and Anne Baker, are dedicated to the oral health of our young patients from infancy through their teen years. Our team at Carolina Pediatric Dentistry has the experience and qualifications to care for your child’s teeth, gums, and mouth throughout his or her various stages of childhood.
Pediatric dentists complete at four years of dental school with an additional 2-3 years of specialty residency training afterwards.
At Carolina Pediatric Dentistry, we know children are not born with a fear of the dentist, but they can fear the unknown. Drs. LaRee Johnson, Clark Morris, Gentry Byrd, and Anne Baker and our team know how to treat children in ways that make them relaxed and comfortable.
