What is Pediatric Dentistry? It is the field of dentistry that specialized in providing oral health care to infants and children through adolescence and patients with special health care needs. That is the clinical definition that us adults understand.
Besides that, a Pediatric Dentist must connect with a child with a level of trust and understanding. We all remember going to the dentist as children. It was a subject that made your stomach do flips and made you sick to it. Today, a visit to the dentist is so much more of a pleasurable experience due to updated technology and the doctors understanding of children’s feelings.
One such Pediatric Dentist is Dr. Evan G. Long, DDS. Dr. Long has been practicing pediatric dentistry for more than 20 years. He graduated from the Indiana University School of Dentistry in 1977. Dr. Long received his certification in Pediatric Dentistry in 1979 after following his two year residency at Riley’s Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis.
Dr. Long’s office can be best described as a “play-land” for children. When you walk in you will notice that this is not the usual dentist office we went to as children.
