PEDIATRIC DENTISTRYPediatric dentists are the pediatricians of the mouth and have completed an additional two years of post-doctoral training in the recognition and treatment of children’s dental and orthodontic problems. At Encinitas Pediatric Dentistry our team has been trained to keep your child's teeth healthy from infancy through adolescence.
ORTHODONTICSThe American Association for Orthodontists recommends that every child have an orthodontic evaluation by the age of seven. Though an orthodontist can enhance a smile at any age, there is an optimal time period to begin treatment. Early detection of potential orthodontic issues gives your child a better chance for natural and normal tooth development.
What People Are Saying
“I chose Dr. Spencer and I’m glad I did! I called on a Monday and got a same day appointment. The office staff and nurses are all very friendly and interacted with my son in an age appropriate way.”
“My daughter was really scared to get her cavities filled, and I didn’t want to put her under. Dr. Chris worked really hard to keep her calm and make her dental experience positive! She walked away from her fillings more confident in herself and not scared of the dentist. Thank you, Dr. Chris!”
