Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?
Children not only have a different dentition than adults but may have specific dental and behavioral needs that are unique to them. These needs may include orthodontics, dental sealants, fluoride applications or home treatments, or simply education in oral hygiene and guidance. In addition to treating existing dental problems, our office focuses on prevention through patient and parent education.
We feel that you and your child do not come to our pediatric dental office in Cary to have their “cavities fixed” but rather to prevent them. Oral health is an important aspect of overall health. Pediatric dentists integrate the knowledge of growth and development of the face in formulating the treatment plans. Pediatric dentists are trained in early identification of simple habits like mouth breathing, thumb sucking or more complex ones like tongue thrusting and obstructive sleep apnea that can be detrimental to the child’s health.
When a Pediatric Dentist is Board Certified it means that the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD) certifies that the dental care being provided is based on standards of excellence that lead to high quality oral health care for infants, children, adolescents and patients with special health care needs. Certification by the ABPD provides assurance to the public that a Pediatric Dentist like Dr. Arti has successfully completed accredited training and a voluntary examination process designed to continually validate the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to the delivery of quality patient care.
