Pediatric dentistry not only promotes the dental health of children but also serves as an educational resource for parents, providing diagnosis, prevention, treatment and control oral health problems of children, oral health education and the integration of these procedures with those of other health professionals.

The promotion of dental health with children must start from an early age through adolescence with the participation of parents. Even when the children don’t present any tooth decay, the parents must take them to the dentist’s to establish a comprehensive and accessible ongoing relationship between the dentist and patient and to prevent and assess any periodontal issue.
