Arlington Children's Dentist - Mary E. Gregory, D.D.S. Family Dentistry
One of the nine recognized dental specialties of the American Dental Association (ADA) is pediatric dentistry. Children's dentistry is dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teen years, and maintains the experience and qualifications to care for a child’s teeth, gums, and mouth through each stage of childhood. For more information on children's dentistry, please feel free to contact our Arlington children's dentist Dr. Mary E. Gregory, D.D.S. for any questions you may have regarding our dental treatments & services for children.
During the first six months of life, children will begin to develop their baby teeth and by the age of 6 or 7 years, they will start to lose their first set of teeth. Once a child loses their first set of teeth, they will eventually be replaced by secondary, permanent teeth. Its always a good idea to bring your child to a professional children's dentist for each stage of their teeth growth and oral development.
Why Visit a Children's Dentist?
Without proper dental care from a children's dentist, children face the possibility of developing oral decay and disease that can cause a lifetime of pain and complications. Early childhood dental cavities are 5 times more common in children today than asthma and 7 times more common than hay fever. A pediatric or children's dentist is required to complete four years of dental school with an additional two years in residency training in dentistry for infants, children, tents, and children with special needs.
