Our aims for Colorado’s infants, children, adolescents and those with special needs are better access to dental care, optimal oral health and a lifetime free from preventable dental disease and pain.
We are the state component of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry – the recognized leader in children’s oral health.
Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?
The pediatric dentist has an extra two to three years of specialized training after dental school, and is dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teenage years. The very young, pre-teens, and teenagers all need different approaches in dealing with their behavior, guiding their dental growth and development, and helping them avoid future dental problems. The pediatric dentist is best qualified to meet these needs.
