Pediatric dentists are specialists in treating the unique needs of children. A pediatric dentist has completed two to three years of specialty training beyond dental school. He or she limits the practice to treating the oral health needs of infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health needs. Dr. Shelton received her specialty training at The University of Texas Health Science Center School of Dentistry in the Houston Texas Medical Center. She is a board certified pediatric dentist.
Choosing a pediatric practice to trust with the health and beauty of your child's smile is an important decision. Making a positive first impression at the dentist can influence children’s view of dentistry for the rest of their lives, so it’s important to make sure your child is comfortable with the doctor and staff. At Cypress Pediatric Dentistry we strive to make a comfortable, welcoming environment for our patients.
Ideally, your child’s dental experience will be something to remember for the rest of their life. We want to make sure it will give them something to smile about.
Special Training: Pediatric dentists receive postdoctoral training in child psychology, behavior modification, and pharmacology. Pediatric dentists also undergo yearly training and re-certification to stay current with the most recent developments in technology and patient care. Board Certification requires additional training requirements annually.
Education for Parent and Child: Pediatric dentists explain preventive care, hygiene, and treatments in simple, easy-to-understand terms.
A Comfortable Environment: It's very important for your child to feel comfortable in our office. It is our goal to create a safe place with a fun atmosphere for your child to enjoy.
