What is Pediatric Dentistry?
Pediatric dentistry is the specialized branch of dentistry treating children from birth through adolescence partnering with other medical professionals and age-based specialists to meet the essential healthcare needs of patients during developmental stages. Pediatric dentists receive advanced degrees in their specialty requiring additional years of training. They nurture a lifetime of positive dental habits and guide the progression of every child’s smile from infancy through early adulthood. Oral healthcare plays a vital role, affecting the growth and function of several areas of the body into adulthood. Many parents are unaware of how important it is to seek proper dental care for their child and establish a dental home as early as one-year-old.
Why Visit a Pediatric Dentist?
Our KidZdent dental specialists are dedicated to creating lifelong smiles as a result of the thorough oral assessment and proper patient education. Infants, children, teens, and patients with special needs all benefit from early preventive care, oral hygiene and health guidance, and a customized approach for every child offered by our experienced and caring professional team. Think of KidZdent as the coach behind the champion’s smile.
Oral healthcare and pediatric dentistry are about so much more than just the physical wellness of the mouth, teeth, and gums. The mouth is the primary entryway into one's body and poor oral health is associated with several medical conditions that have negative consequences impacting the entire body. Bacteria from the mouth can easily get into the bloodstream and cause infection and inflammation wherever it spreads.
Potential ailments including:
- Improper structural development of the jaw-line
- Breathing/Respiratory Issues
- Sleep Disorders/Snoring
- Digestive trouble
- Cardiovascular disease
- Tooth decay or loss of teeth
- Gum disease & more.
Tooth pain, gums that are inflamed or bleed, and bad breath can be indicators of poor oral health.
According to the Surgeon General, tooth decay is the single most common chronic childhood disease in America. Informed parents know that pediatric tooth decay is 100% preventable. By teaching their children healthy habits from the start and bringing them to KidZdent for routine dental care, parents can help children avoid serious dental problems or other medical complications in the future. This also nurtures positive dental experiences, reduces anxiety and encourages healthy lifelong dental practices.
Your Child’s First Visit to KidZdent: Our Old Bridge Pediatric Dental Office
Not trying to brag… (well, maybe just a little), but the KidZdent pediatric dental practice has been compared to a ‘Disneyland of Dentistry’ by some of our most consistent and faithful patients. In fact, we have known some of our patients so long we even hire them after they’ve been inspired to complete their professional dental journey. But that doesn’t just happen overnight. That kind of dedication begins with the very first visit to the pediatric dental chair!
Our gentle and compassionate introduction, utilizing the tell-show-do approach is designed to set the stage for a positive dental experience for life. Our team understands how important the first impression is, and we are devoted to making your child's first visit enjoyable and educational. Our patients grow with us and go on to college with not just healthy and happy smiles, but with the confidence and skills to keep their smiles strong for life.

Great First Dental Visit!
In addition to caring for your child’s teeth and ensuring they leave our office feeling great, our Old Bridge pediatric dentists take time to educate parents and kids on proper brushing and flossing technique. We also provide advice on diet and nutrition choices that support overall dental health and decrease risk for decay and gum disease.
Prevention and Dental Restorations for Children
Our team offers fluoride and dental sealants as additional preventive efforts. Children whose teeth display decay are treated with the same level of care and attention. Our pediatric dental restorations include tooth-colored, amalgam-free fillings and durable dental crowns to prevent progression of damage to teeth. While many parents think baby teeth don’t need restorative care, the health of baby teeth affects the health of permanent teeth, making pediatric dental care all the more important for your child’s long-term well-being.
