Dr. Regina Lewis and the team at Houston Pediatric Dental Specialists start children on a lifetime of excellent oral health by providing high-quality pediatric dentistry in a safe, comfortable environment. Kids enjoy the fun, engaging office décor, but it takes more than this to create a positive dental experience for children. Those who have pleasant, positive dental experiences early on are less likely to be fearful about visiting the dentist as adults. The key is to choose the right pediatric dentist, just as you would carefully select the right pediatrician for your children.
Specialized in Treating Pediatric Patients
Not only is Dr. Lewis current on the latest advances in pediatric dentistry, treating children is her specialty, and her skill reflects her extra training. She completed a rigorous two-year postdoctoral residency after earning a DDS, which included advanced diagnostic and surgical procedures, child psychology and clinical management, and child development. This training is in contrast to the family dentist who has no additional training in pediatrics, and in some cases, has not seen pediatric patients before graduating from dental school.
The board-certified pediatric dentists and the Houston Pediatric Dental Specialists’ team use a variety of proven techniques to make youngsters feel right at home during their office visits. One of the ways is by using a “tell, show, do” hands-on learning approach.
We strive to eliminate the fear of the unknown by explaining what will happen while patients are with us.” – Dr. Lewis
“We show them how to brush and how we look for cavities using a cute stuffed animal and get them acquainted with the equipment in our office. Most children initially equate the dental office with going to see the pediatrician. We show them how dentists are different.”
