Paediatric dentistry is the branch of dentistry dealing with children from birth through adolescence. Paediatric dentists promote the dental health of children as well as serve as educational resources for parents. it is important to establish a comprehensive and accessible ongoing relationship between the dentist and patient – referring to this as the patient's "dental home. This is because early oral examination aids in the detection of the early stages of tooth decay. Additionally, parents are given a program of preventative home care (brushing/flossing/fluorides), a caries risk assessment, information on finger, thumb, and pacifier habits, advice on preventing injuries to the mouth and teeth of children, diet counselling, and information on growth and development.
