why choose a pediatric dentist?

What is a pediatric dentist?

Our team at Timber Kids Dentistry & Orthodontics are not just general dentists- but pediatric specialists. This means that our doctors have had extensive training and experience that helps us tailor our care to children of all ages. We use gentle and skillful care to encourage your child to have happy memories and feelings toward their dentist. Though general dentists can often care for the needs of children, only pediatric specialists receive additional training beyond dental school to gain knowledge and skill when it comes to treating kids of all ages.

The importance of building relationships early

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children visit the dentist for the first time around their first birthday or when their first tooth erupts (whichever comes first). When we see children from a young age, we can more accurately track their oral development and diagnose any new issues that may not have been seen during a previous appointment. Establishing a relationship with the pediatric specialists at Timber Kids Dentistry & Orthodontics as early as age one will help your child to be more at ease during their dental visit. In addition, our team can help encourage healthy habits at home.

What Makes Us Different

We set ourselves apart from other dental offices in the Bend, Oregon area by believing in every child's spirit of adventure and fun. We genuinely want every child that we care for to have an exciting time at the dentist - and that starts with our team. Our goal is that kids will make their dental health their own by learning what we teach them about their teeth and their oral health habits. If your child is curious and wants to know more, we’ll take them on a tour of their dental health using our imaging technology! We take every opportunity to encourage healthy habits and expand your child’s knowledge about their oral health.
