Dr. Svensson loves children and is committed to your child's health. The difference between taking your child to a pediatric dentist as compared to a general or family dentist is like taking your child to see a pediatrician instead of a family doctor. A pediatric dentist has limited her practice to treating children under 18 and focuses on child development, growth expectations, anomalies, and diseases. A pediatric dentist has devoted her career to how to help you keep your child comfortable, happy, and healthy, and make sure you have the right information in order to make the best decisions for your child's care. Furthermore, a pediatric dentist who achieves diplomate status, also known as board certification, with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry has undergone additional education and examination beyond specialty training and re-certifies every year.
