Is your child seeing a pediatric dentist?

Parents want the very best for their children and just as you would take your child to the pediatrician for their medical care, they should see a pediatric dentist for their dental care. The pediatric dentist is the pediatrician of dentistry. You may wonder why that is important? What is the difference between a pediatric dentist and a general dentist? A pediatric dentist has an additional 2-3 years of specialized training and they have dedicated themselves to the dental care of children.

When you come to Charleston Pediatric Dentistry your child will see Dr Sherry. It is her goal to partner with you to ensure that your child gets started on the path to a lifetime of good dental hygiene habits. Every child should see a pediatric dentist within six months of the first tooth erupting and every six months after that for dental cleanings.

Dr Sherry is a Diplomat and board-certified by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. She completed a fellowship in pediatric sedation at Children’s Hospital Medical Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. She has been in practice for 25 years.
