Why choose a "Pediatric Dentist" for your child?
Pediatric Dentists are the "Pediatricians" of Dentistry and have an additional 2-3 years of training beyond traditional dental school. This training is essential in understanding your child's oral health needs to the highest possible standard. Infants, children, and adolescents all need different approaches in dealing with their behavior, guiding their dental growth and development, and helping them avoid future dental problems. As a specialist, the Pediatric Dentist is best qualified to meet these needs.
Why choose a "Board Certified" Specialist?
Not all pediatric dentists are the same. A "Board-Certified" Pediatric Dentist has voluntarily gone through a rigorous examination process with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD). The ABPD certifies a Pediatric Dentist based on standards of excellence that lead to high quality oral health care for infants, children, adolescents, and patients with special health care needs.
Certification by the ABPD provides assurance to the public that a Pediatric Dentist has successfully completed accredited training and a voluntary 2-part examination process designed to continually validate the knowledge, skills, and experience requisite to the delivery of quality patient care.
To best serve your child's oral health needs Dr. Malik is Certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
Informed parents are realizing the advantages of their children receiving care from Pediatric Dental Specialists with Board-Certification. Find out if your dentist is Certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry at http://abpd.org/Diplomate-Roster.aspx
