Welcome to Pediatric Dentistry of Palo Alto
I’ve always felt extraordinarily lucky to be a pediatric dentist. It’s more of a passion with me than a profession. Perhaps where others find their “work” as a means to earn an income to enable them to lead the kind of life they would like to enjoy, pediatric dentistry is an integral part of what I enjoy most out of life.
Dr. Aneil is a board certified pediatric dentist with high energy and passion in caring for children’s dental health. Dr. Aneil grew up in California, and attended the University of Pacific dental school in San Francisco, where he was awarded “most promising future in pediatric dentistry” upon graduation.
Dr. Adams and Dr. Aneil are Board Certified Pediatric Dentists who have been treating children in the community for over the previous 25 years!
Pediatric dentists are qualified to meet the dental needs of infants, toddlers, school-age children, and adolescents. Pediatric dentists are required to undertake an additional two or three years of child-specific training after fulfilling dental school requirements.
In addition to dental training, pediatric dentists specifically study child psychology. This enables them to communicate with children in an effective, gentle, and non-threatening manner.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that children see a pediatric dentist before the age of one (or approximately six months after the emergence of the first primary tooth). Though this might seem early, biannual preventative dental appointments are imperative for excellent oral health.
