Pediatric Dentists Fort Worth Texas

I'm still looking for a good pediatric dentist in the Fort Worth area. So I decided to see what the Big G ( Google) has to say about that.

I have found that for many local businesses Google has a good selection of seperate results for local search. In this case Google returned many dentists near Fort Worth Texas.

The results included:
Fort Worth Pediatric Dentistry
Fort Worth Children's Dentistry
Next Century Dental
Bailey Hyde and Miller
Just for Kids Dentistry
Stan Preece DDS

And many more results.

Now I see there are a lot of pediatric dentists to choose from in this area. In the old days a consumer might just pick up the phone and call a couple. Maybe you picked the first dentist in the Yellow Pages or the one with the biggest display ad. I hate doing things that way. There is also Word of Mouth, but I don't know many people in this area with young kids.

So I guess the next step is looking around for some dentist reviews. I don't want to spend a lot of time calling or investigating 5-6 different dental offices. So I will see who has a good reputation.

Another thing to consider ( and perhaps I should do this before anything else) is what your dental insurance might cover who is in your network. I know a lot of people don't have dental plans, but my son has a good dental plan that fully covers cleanings, sealants, fillings, and a significant portion of major dental work. So I definitely want a pediatric dentist who takes our insurance. The provider website has a function to look out in-network dentists in our area. I will do that next and then look at reviews.

Where are some Pediatric Dentists in Texas?

My son has a very good pediatric dentist. We are thinking about moving and are looking to see what kids dentists are available in Texas. We searched and found a site called This practice is apparently called "Texas pediatric Dentistry" and located McKinney, focusing on North Texas.

I was looking for something in Fort Worth Texas specifically. It is possible that may be close, but I am not sure. I will keep searching.

Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric Dentists specialize in pedodontics. In other words these are kids dentists who typically deal with treating the teeth of children up through adolescents. This speciality is recognized by the American Dental Association and requires years of extra training after dental school.

These kids dentists will often deal exclusively with children and are highly skilled in making childen comfortable and performing cleaning check ups and proceedures with as little pain as possible. They also are very knowledgeable in preventing tooth decay and teaching young children good oral hygiene.

If you have a young son or daughter, I recommend finding a good local doctor who specializes in treating kid's teeth.
