Our dentists often serve as coordinators of complex dental services and are responsible for early diagnosis and seeking other specialty consultation when the need arises. Based upon a child's clinical and radiographic evaluation, the pediatric dentist may recommend further evaluation by specialists who concentrate on the health of the gums and supporting bony structures, the alignment of teeth, or other areas. Locally, Nicklaus Children's Hospital, is also the only hospital whose Emergency Room is staffed 24 hours a day with a pediatric dentist.
