Pediatric dentist specialize in dental care for children, adolescents, and the intellectually and developmentally disabled. Pediatric dentistry is a recognized specialty by the ADA which requires two years of additional training beyond dental school. Here at the Rector Dental Group our pediatric dentists are also board certified members of the College of Diplomats. A child is not a small adult, therefore they should not be treated this way. Children require a specialized kind of care. At the Rector Dental Group we provide a kid-friendly environment that promotes a fun and enjoyable experience for all.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends every child sees a dentist by their first birthday. It is important establishing a dental home for your child at an early age for several reasons. Prevention is our primary goal. If we see a child before they have a cavity and maintain regular visits, then they are more likely to be cavity free throughout their childhood. When kids begin to walk, falls are inevitable. Trauma to the mouth can happen in seconds, and at the Rector Dental Group we are always available when emergencies arise.
Promoting good oral hygiene habits at an early age is the key to prevention. Dental anxiety and fear can be alleviated and prevented by having a dental home at an early age. We have one of the most kid-friendly offices for pediatric dentists in Muncie, IN. Come visit the Rector Dental Group and make it your child’s dental home today!
