Childhood is the most golden period, a joyful experience of endless fun and filled with abundant imagination! And every child is a touch of Heaven that we hold onto ! As parents and caregivers, nothing is more important than your child. You want to give them your utmost best in every way. Part of this endeavour is to take responsibility for the betterment of your child's dental health. Baby teeth do not last forever, but if you choose to neglect them, you can still do long-term damage to your child's overall health. Fortunately, dentistry has a branch specifically for children. This branch is known as Paediatric Dentistry. After graduation, dentists undergo further three years of extensive post graduate training in this particular field and thus, they are named Paediatric Dentists / the Paediatricians in Dentistry.
Pedodontics, or Paediatric Dentistry as it is popularly known, is one of the nine branches of dentistry, which deals primarily with children, right from infancy to adolescence, including those with special health care needs (differently abled children as well as medically compromised children). This website welcomes you for exploration into this special branch of dentistry. It also provides you with the information of a family of 200 registered Paediatric Dentists spread widely across Kerala State. We, as a family, are concerned about your child’s total oral health care until he/she attains their teen years. Good oral health is an important part of total health. Our goal is for your child to enjoy good oral health for a lifetime.
