Most parents take their children to a pediatrician because while a general physician is great, pediatricians have the extra skills, experience, training, and expertise to treat children.
The field of pediatric dentistry is no different!
So while you may see a general dentist who you absolutely love, they may not be the right dental provider for your child at this critical stage of their young lives. So the question then becomes “should I switch, and if so why?”
Yes, You Should Switch and Here are 6 Reasons Why:
We Only See Children
You want your child to have the best dental care that is personally tailored to their needs. A big part of this is making sure that the dentist or dental office you select for your child works with children day in and day out, and that nothing will catch them off guard.
Imagine that you are building an outdoor kitchen, pool, or something else at your home that requires experience and expertise. You wouldn’t just hire a handyman to complete this very specific job, would you?
Sure they might do it and do a good job, but if you had the choice to hire a company that specialized in building outdoor kitchens, or specialized in building amazing pools, wouldn’t you choose that option (assuming costs are comparable)?
Of course, you would!
In any walk of life the more a person works with a specific group of people or performs specific tasks day in and day out, the more knowledge and experience they gain that can be applied to those specific situations.
Since you have the opportunity to take your child to a dentist who has been clinically trained to care exclusively for children, shouldn’t you take advantage of it? We think so!
Our Practices & Pediatric Dentists are Very Kid-Friendly (Clinical Compassion)
Many general dentists have a warm and inviting office…for adults. The potential issue is that while general dentistry offices are typically very neat, clean, and friendly to adults, a child may not view that office the same way.
Your child probably doesn’t care that there are fresh flowers on the counter and soothing, neutral paint colors on the wall. What they need is an office where they can walk in and immediately be distracted by all of the amazing kid-friendly things.
In addition to our practices being warm and inviting for kids, our pediatric dentists are too!
As a mom or dad, you know firsthand that it takes a special person to work with children day in and day out; you must have a heart for it; there’s no faking it!
At Chester County Dentistry for Children, all of our pediatric dentists have a huge heart for what they do, and the children and parents they serve (yes, we are here to serve. You can read our core values below):
Your Child May Actually Look Forward to Going to the Dentist (Less Anxiety)
What if instead of dreading a dental appointment, your child actually looked forward to it? Can you imagine how that would turn your world upside down (in a good way, of course)?
One of the great things about taking your child to a Chester County Dentistry for Children is that they form a bond with a dentist or team of dentists who are excellent at forming bonds with children.
We’ll ask them about their favorite superhero, or what sports and activities they are involved with, etc. Everything at our locations is done to make sure that your child is happy, comfortable, and walks away after their appointment with a smile on their face.
