Healthy Smiles for Your Kids
San Diego Children's Dentistry offers comprehensive pediatric dental care.
Pediatric dentists are the pediatricians of the mouth. Just like you take your children to see a pediatrician for their well-baby checks, pediatric dentists are trained and equipped to see your children from the very earliest age to set the stage for a lifetime of great oral health.
Pediatric dentists just see kids, which means they can specialize their approach to this fun and energetic age group. Pediatric dentists have completed 2-3 extra years of specialized training to prepare them to treat children of all ages, sizes, and personalities. In addition to learning about dental treatment planning for young patients, this training also includes studying growth and development, child psychology, and techniques and skills to help young children feel relaxed and comfortable receiving dental treatment. Some pediatric dentists, like Dr. Frandsen, are also trained to treat children and adolescents with special health care needs, like ADHD, Down Syndrome, etc. Our office is designed with the child in mind. From the lobby to the treatment area and everywhere in between, our office is set up to make your child feel comfortable, relaxed, and have a great time with our talented staff.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Dental Association all recommend that your children be seen within the first 6 months following the appearance of their first tooth or around their first birthday, whichever is sooner.
