Today, with the promotion of community awareness, fortunately, the importance of oral health and maintenance of primary teeth for parents is clear. Due to the important roles of primary teeth in the oral system, these teeth should be maintained until the eruption of the permanent teeth. For this reason, it seems the parent’s perspective has changed, and children’s dentistry is now a priority for most families. Pediatric dentists should be specialized in different fields of pediatric dentistry. They will be training in the fields of pediatric psychology, child anesthesia and sedation, and age-appropriate behavior management so that they can manage children’s treatments in the best way. This group of dentists is specialized in eliminating child concerns and anxiety too. They can distract children’s minds by talking to them from what they plan to do. This friendship makes the child’s fears go away and the treatments are accomplished positively so that the child would not feel any bad dental experiences at all. Pediatric dentists provide the parents with the necessary training information to protect their children’s teeth from the very beginning of their childhood.
