At Hoover Dental Center in Los Angeles, California, Dr. Hee Jee Yoon has the skill and knowledge to properly care for your family’s youngest members. Dr. Yoon has an incredible passion for working with children, and cannot wait to meet you. It can be difficult finding a dental clinic that can cater to the needs of every member of your family. At Hoover Dental Center, we know the importance of providing quality care for patients of all ages. Here are some benefits that a dentist with pediatric training can offer.
Having separate dentists for the older members of your family and your young children can be a hassle. Then comes the inconvenience of transitioning your child from their pediatric dentist, with whom they have an established relationship, to another dentist once they are older. Wouldn’t it be easier to have every family member visit the same dental practice?
The following reasons highlight why you should find a dental practice experienced in pediatric dentistry.
Become comfortable with your dentist. Routine is required for a child to become comfortable with certain things. Dentistry is one thing that falls in this category. If a child starts seeing a dentist early, they will be comfortable with the experience and not develop anxiety and fear toward dental visits. Squashing potential fears before they can develop by taking your child to a dentist with pediatric dental training will ensure your child never has to fear the dentist. They will be comfortable with the experience and the dentist.
Establish trust and a dental history. When you find a family dentist who not only treats the older members of your family but also provides pediatric dental services, this allows your dentist to have familiarity with your children’s dental history from their earliest years. If you choose a dental office that only offers pediatric dental care and then transition your child to a family dentist, your child’s trust in their previous dentist will have to be re-established with a new dentist. The new dentist will be unfamiliar with your child as well. A family dentist that serves patients of all ages will know what your child needs from their early years through their adult years.
The dentist knows how to work with children. This is the most important reason you should choose a dentist who provides pediatric dental services. Working with a child, both physically and mentally, is nothing like working with an adult. Children have needs that differ from adults while in the dental chair. Having a dentist who takes age, personality, and oral health all into account each time they see your child is so important.
