Why a Pediatric Dentist?
Pediatric dentistry is more than just fixing cavities – it’s also about preventing them. Children have different dental issues and needs than adults, which may include dental sealants, fluoride applications, orthodontics, and oral hygiene. Dr. Mason’s mission is to educate parents and patients and provide the tools necessary to live a cavity-free life.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry encourages parents and other care providers to help every child establish a dental home by 12 months of age. Establishing a dental home provides some key components to dental care for your child including:
- Comprehensive oral health care including acute care and preventive services
- Individualized preventive dental health program based upon a caries-risk assessment
- Anticipatory guidance regarding growth and development plan for acute dental trauma (emergencies)
- Dietary counseling
- Referrals to dental specialists when care cannot directly be provided within the dental home
- Referral at an age determined by the patient, parent, and pediatric dentist
