Pediatric Dentistry, also known as Pediatric Dentistry, is the main science that aims to protect the health of the dairy and permanent teeth of children 0-14 years old and treat the diseases that occur.
All necessary dental treatments are applied by pedodontists to healthy and handicapped children.

The excellent oral and dental health of children can be achieved by regular dental check up every 6 months. Any problems that threaten oral and dental health can be detected during these checks. The important thing here is the early diagnosis and treatment of these problems. Early detection in a child will affect the child's physical and emotional development positively.
