children's dentistry | palos heights IL dentistYou may wonder what makes pediatric dentists different. After all, it might seem easier to take your little ones to your general dentist instead of making a special trip. However, numerous advantages exist for taking your child to a dentist that specializes in children’s dentistry. 

Specialized Training

Each pediatric dentist goes through approximately two additional years of training in order to learn the skills necessary to provide excellent dental care for your child. They learn everything from the language to use when explaining procedures to children to how to treat children with special needs. Dr. Facko served a two year residency in pediatric dentistry so that he could effectively and successfully treat dental conditions specific to children.
