Pediatric Dentistry is a dental specialty that focuses on the unique needs of children from the earliest years through young adulthood.
Dental care for children is of paramount importance, as preventive and interventional dental care early in life can improve oral health in adulthood. Our pediatric dental specialists ensure that children grow up with good experiences in the dental office, leading to a positive lifelong attitude toward oral health.
It is essential that children and young adults receive preventive and interceptive dental care early in life in order to ensure optimal oral health in adulthood.
MDOC highly encourages all visiting children patient parents to ask their attending dentist about the pros and cons of Pediatric Dentistry. There are some risks which should be considered prior and after having Pediatric Dentistry treatment. Safety comes first, hence it is imperative that all parent’s patients fully understand risks associated with Pediatric Dentistry treatment.
Parents are expected to sign and accept MDOC consent forms. In these consent forms your dentist will walk you through the most common risks and side effects related to your pediatric dentistry procedure.
For legal reason MDOC dentists will not be able to perform any dental procedure should the parent or legal guardian of the patient refuse to sign consent forms related to his/her treatment plan.
