February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, and as pediatric dentists in Calgary, we want nothing more for your kids than to help them take care of their dental health!
The American Dental Association sponsors National Children’s Dental Health Month in February. It focuses on bringing thousands of healthcare professionals, including pediatric dentists, together to use learning resources and activities to teach children about caring for their teeth.
This article will examine what a pediatric dentist is and how they can help treat your children.
What is a Pediatric Dentist?
Dentists in Calgary who go the pediatric route often do so because they have a vested interest in working with children. They go through four years of dental school and an additional two years of training to learn how to work with infants, teens, children and those children with special needs.
Our pediatric dentists at Brentwood Village Dental Clinic are dedicated to helping children grow and develop their teeth and bone structure.
Pediatric Dentists Know the Best Care for Children
Children often struggle in the dentist’s chair; it can be challenging to get them to cooperate during a dental exam!
Pediatric dentists in Calgary use special equipment decorated for younger patients, so they are less scared and anxious when seeing the dental tools being used. They are trained to examine and treat your child’s teeth, gums and mouth in ways that make them feel more comfortable.
Dental Issues Can They Treat
Our pediatric dentists in Calgary treat dental issues unique to infants, toddlers, and adolescents, including:
- Thumb sucking
- Baby teeth loss
- “Shark” teeth
- Tooth decay
- Tongue thrusting
Our dentists will ensure that your child’s teeth and jaw usually grow and can detect issues early on.

Teaching your child about dental hygiene at a young age is vital to developing good habits to maintain their mental health today and later in life!
