Creating Happy Smiles
A general dentist is not your only choice for your children’s dental care. Lovett Dental Heights offers some of the most qualified pediatric dentists for your child’s changing oral health needs. With so many stages between birth and adulthood, a pediatric dentist through a family dental practice knows more about oral growth and development than other types of dental providers.
According to the American Association of Pediatric Dentistry, over 6,000 member pediatric dentists practice in the United States. Some of those care for patients at Lovett Dental Heights. They work alongside other types of dental specialists as part of one multidisciplinary practice, including:
- Maxillofacial surgeons
- Family dentists
The Top Pediatric Dentistry in the Heights
Pediatric dentistry involves dentists who completed specialized education and training after dental school. This additional coursework and training place a focus on the unique needs of children.
This study and hands-on experience include hospital training where specializing dentists work with young patients suffering from dental emergencies. Orthodontic care is another area of extra training, particularly for teeth straightening. In their additional work, pediatric dentists work with pediatricians and general dentists as part of a specialized network meeting your child’s overall health care needs.
Pediatric dentistry also focuses on what young patients eat, how they care for their teeth at home, dental or health issues that run in the family, and other aspects of their daily lifestyle.
Does Your Child Need Pediatric Dentistry?
Pediatric dentistry at Lovett Dental Heights treats patients from birth to college age. This includes young patients with developmental issues or those needing specialized attention, such as treatment in a hospital due to other medical problems. During these younger years of life, your child’s pediatric dentist gets to know their dental and medical history. They also know of any particular treatment your child needs.
Just as important as education and training in pediatric dentistry is a pediatric dentist’s desire to treat young patients. Not all dentists seek to take care of children. So you want one who makes your child feel comfortable. The right dentist for your family is one your child enjoys seeing and trusts.

Advantages of Seeing a Pediatric or Family Dentist
Your options for children’s dentistry at Lovett Dental Heights include taking your whole family to one family dental practice. A family dentist understands the needs of children, including regular dental exams and teeth cleaning. But these dentists also treat adults of all ages. Their training enables them to take care of infants through the oldest people in your family.
One of the biggest advantages of a family dentist, besides their training, is convenience. With everyone in your household going to the same dentist, you do not need to visit multiple dental practices. Instead, everyone goes to the same office at Lovett Dental Heights.
Another advantage of seeing a Lovett Dental Heights family dentist is familiarity. Your one dentist for multiple members of your household knows and understands your family’s diet, lifestyle, oral hygiene habits, and genetic tendencies, such as for receding gums.
