What’s the difference between child dentist and pediatric dentist?
A pediatric dentist specializes in early life dental practices only. Kind of a like a Pediatrician. Their offices are decked out in child friendly decorations and all the works to make children (especially those with special needs) feel relaxed and comfortable.
Though pediatric dentists are specialists, they are not necessary in most cases with children. Dr. Ross is a child dentist, meaning he is qualified (by experience and training) to handle early life dental practices. Our office, although not decked out in stuffed animals, is designed with patient comfort in mind.
Ross Dental is a Family Dentistry
We’re a family-friendly dentistry here in New Berlin—we make each and every patient feel as comfortable as possible with great staff, personalized care, and fun freebies: even patients younger than 10. If your child is ready for his or her first visit to the dentist, then stop in at Ross Dental for free consultation.
When should I start taking my child to the dentist?
Starting at 12 months, or 6 months after their first tooth comes in. It’s important to start early so your child develops good oral hygiene habits.
During the first visits with your child, Dr. Ross will:
- Get to know you and your child
- Initiate care to prevent or mitigate common pediatric oral diseases and conditions
- Provide you with information to prevent dental disease
- Begin fluoride treatment for your child as needed
- Identify any special risks your child may have for dental problems and begin planning a preventative program
A dentist for children with autism
Dr. Ross is proud to work with children with special needs! Children on the spectrum may have difficulty during their visit to the dentist, and sedation dentistry provides a gentle and effective way to ensure necessary treatments are safely completed for your child.
Tooth Extractions for Children
Is your child experiencing severe tooth ache? Headaches? Throbbing? They might be experiencing the first signs of cavity that should be removed before decay spreads through the whole mouth or nerve.
Based on your child’s needs and state of health, we can recommend sedation dentistry for the extraction process. Sedation dentistry is safe for children, but Dr. Ross may find an alternate course of action that provides your child with even safer treatment.

How often should I take my child to the dentist?
A child should see the dentist as often as adults do—every 6 months. If there are extenuating circumstances, then your child should come in more regularly so their condition can be monitored closely.
Can my child be left alone at the dentist?
Young children should be accompanied by an adult, especially because Dr. Ross will be advising new parents on how to implement good oral hygiene habits early on. As your child gets older, you can start to leave them alone for most of the visit as we guide them to developing their own hygiene habits.
