Dr. Kennedy is a pediatric dentist who specializes in the oral health and development of children and teens. Pediatric dentists are a selective group of dentists who have received extra, extensive training in growing healthy smiles. This doesn’t mean that only certain patients require the services of a pediatric dentist, but rather that only a pediatric dentist can apply a truly expert level of knowledge and care to a developing smile.
Clinical excellence for pediatric dentists involves recommending the best time when dental treatment is recommended, what treatment should be performed, and how the treatment should be accomplished. Performing dental treatment on children too soon or too late, using less effective or outdated techniques, and neglecting the child’s overall experience can lead to a lot of frustration, anxiety, increased costs, and unfortunately repeated or more invasive procedures later.
