Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?

What is a Board-Certified Pediatric Dentist?

Committed to Your Child’s Smile

From your child’s first tiny tooth debut and through their teens, board-certified pediatric dentists are wholeheartedly dedicated to helping children's smiles grow bright and strong. Board-certified pediatric dentists must achieve a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) or Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree, pursue years of extensive education through a postgraduate pediatric residency program, and require an annual renewal by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry
Board-certification is a beacon of commitment to children’s health, as they grow to become active participants in their oral care. As a board-certified pediatric dentist, Dr. Sandra Thompson carries the gentle expertise needed for a healthy, developing grin, so you can trust your little one is in the most caring, experienced hands.

The Importance of Forming the Doctor/Patient Relationship Early

Confident Visits & Thriving Oral Health

At Desert Kids Dental, we understand the magnitude of early, enjoyable dental experiences and the positive impact it can make on a child’s posture towards oral health. Introducing professional dental treatments at an early age will help your child to feel comfortable, at ease, and even excited when stepping into their routine visits! For lifelong, confident smiles, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends taking your baby to the dentist when their first tooth appears or by their first birthday. Dr. Thompson loves empowering fearless visits and approaches dental care in a way that’s gentle, playful, and comforting, so your child can look forward to a lifetime of healthy, happy smiles.
