Board Certified Pediatric Dentist
Dr. Forester doesn’t just call himself a pediatric dentist, he had to earn that title by completing specialized training on top of dental school. During his pediatric residency, he completely dedicated two years to learning about and meeting the unique dental needs of children of all ages. In addition, a pediatric dentist is not required to be board certified by the ABPD (American Board of Pediatric Dentistry) in order to practice dentistry for children. This certification requires a significant commitment of additional time and energy to earn and maintain and reflects his commitment to the profession and passion for being a pediatric dentist. The field of children’s dental health changes quickly, and maintaining board certification is one way Dr. Forester ensures he is providing his patients with the most current and up to date techniques, technologies, and treatment. Because of this, the team at Coastal Pediatric Dentistry can offer a much higher level of service and expertise compared to your typical family dental office, meaning your little one will only get the best at every visit.
First and foremost, our dental office is committed to protecting the safety and health of our patients, which is why we only use non-toxic materials that have been proven to provide reliable and long-lasting results. Instead of mercury-laden metal fillings, we use only fillings made of a biocompatible composite resin (white fillings). In addition to keeping your child safe, these fillings are also more natural-looking, meaning we can preserve your child’s dental health and appearance with one simple treatment. This is just one of the many ways we help parents always have peace of mind whenever they come to see us.
The newest dental technology makes appointments go faster, helps keep patients more comfortable, and they also enable our team to treat problems more effectively. That’s why Dr. Forester consistently invests in the latest tools available today. Digital X-rays, for example, only take a fraction of the time to create highly-detailed images, and they emit up to 90% LESS radiation compared to traditional film. We also make use of dental lasers to provide quick and easy frenectomies and frenuloplasties in-office.
We’re serious about pediatric dental care, but visiting our dental office should always be a fun experience for both you and your child! Our team will greet you like an old friend, your child will have plenty of games and toys to keep them occupied, and you’ll be able to relax and enjoy a cup of coffee during their appointments. We like to say that our dental office is where the comforts of home combined with state-of-the-art dental care, giving everyone plenty of reasons to smile.
We believe that absolutely every child should have access to high-quality and personalized dental care, especially those who have developmental delays, sensory issues, autism, or other disabilities.
