Pediatric Dentist in Langley
Pediatric dentistry is dental treatment for kids. A child’s first visit to the dentist is an important one. To avoid a lifetime of dental anxiety and fear the first appointment is usually to put your child at ease and to make them comfortable in the dental office environment. This will make future treatments easier on your child. We recommend bringing your child in for regular 6 month check ups and cleanings. We offer dental cleanings and fluoride treatments, fissure sealants, fillings, extractions, minor oral sedation and orthodontic treatment as needed.

The Benefits of Pediatric Dentistry
The primary focus of a pediatric dentist is prevention and treatment, as well as educating parents and other dental professionals on how best to look after their children's teeth. The pediatric dentists who work in dental schools and hospital training facilities work hard, conducting research in order to develop better treatment methods for preventing oral health problems in children.
While all general dentists are trained in pediatric dentistry, pediatric dentists are dedicated to the oral healthcare of children from infancy through their teen years. All pediatric dentists have the qualifications to care for a child's teeth, gums, and mouth.
