Pediatric Dentistry

Enhance Your Ability to Work with Pediatric Dental Patients

Dental assistants make many important contributions in the dental office, including helping to provide patient care for all ages.

For those who help to treat young dental patients, it’s especially essential to be able to demonstrate enhanced dental assisting knowledge, skills and competency.

First and foremost, young patients must feel comfortable during dental visits and procedures – along with their parents or guardians. This is why dental assistants working with pediatric dental patients must know the appropriate language to talk and build rapport with children, as well be able to adapt when unique challenges arise, to help provide oral treatment in pediatric dentistry.

To work successfully with pediatric dental patients, it’s also critical for dental assistants to understand how to mitigate dental anxiety among pediatric patients, the different types and effects of sedation on children, preventive measures and restorative procedures available to practitioners to treat pediatric patients, and more.
