Pediatric dentists promote the dental health of children as well as serve as an educational resource for parents raising children. It is recommended that a dental visit should occur within six months after the presence of the first tooth or by a child's first birthday. Early oral examination aids in the detection of tooth decay and is essential to maintaining oral health. Pediatric dentists can also help modify oral habits early on to help prevent future problems. Additionally, parents are educated on a child's at home oral care and a cavities (caries) risk assessment. Parents may also obtain information about children's finger, thumb, and pacifier habits. Pediatric dentist will also advise on diet during a child's growth and development stage to best prevent oral problems.
