Pediatric Dentistry in Wilmington, DE | Drs. Gladnick and Justison

If you are searching for a pediatric dentist for the youngest members of your family, it is important to choose a dentist who truly understands how to work with children. Pediatric dental patients have different needs than adult patients, which means their dental care must be approached differently.

It takes time for young children to establish good dental habits. Your children learn many of these habits at the dentist’s office and then practice them within the home — so you need to choose a dentist in Wilmington, DE who will help your children succeed!

Calming Nervous Children 

Many young children are afraid of the dentist and likewise do not want to cooperate during dental visits. This fear often stems from a simple fear of the unknown.

When choosing a pediatric dentist, look for someone who will be patient and gentle with your children. Many times, young patients need time to explore the dental office or to sit in the dental chair before they will feel safe and at-home. Pediatric dentists understand this need and will look for creative ways to engage children and make them feel relaxed while visiting the dentist.

Promoting Early Dental Care

Additionally, it is important to choose a pediatric dentist who will work with your child starting at an early age. Your child should be seen by a dentist either by their first birthday or within a few months of their first tooth erupting. Young patients need to be seen regularly to help protect their baby teeth.
