What Is a Pediatric Dentist? – Katy, TX
100% Dedicated to Your Child’s Smile
At Happy Chompers Pediatric Dentistry, we know that each child is unique and special. On top of that, children in general tend to have very different dental needs from adults. After all, young smiles go through many changes and stages of growth early on. From erupting primary (i.e., baby) teeth to losing them and gaining permanent teeth, the infancy through teenage years are full of potential dental challenges and issues.
Certified with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. Adeel Khan, or Dr. A, has spent years gaining additional specialized training and has proven his knowledge of and expertise in child-related dental issues in rigorous written and clinical examinations, enabling him to meet these unique needs.
Why Choose a Pediatric Expert?
- Years of Additional Training
- Board-Certified Expertise

General Dentist vs Pediatric Dentist
Although many general dentists can claim to be a “children’s dentist” or welcome members of the whole family in their practices, our pediatric dentist specifically can provide your child with these helpful benefits:
Advanced Training in Pediatrics
After dental school, Dr. A continued to study children’s oral development and growth. As a result, he is a skilled pediatric oral expert and capable of identifying and treating problems that babies, toddlers, children, and teens can face.
Special Needs Accommodations
As part of his specialized training, Dr. A and the rest of our team know how to help those with behavioral, mental, or physical special needs and practice with a gentle, patient approach.
Friendly, Warm Environment
Our office is designed to create an atmosphere where kids feel at ease. In addition, each team member loves working with kids and has a calm, fun personality to give your child a positive dental experience at every visit.
Help Your Child Smile
As your child gets their first baby tooth, experiences dental emergencies, prepares for college, and anything in between, trust our team at Happy Chompers Pediatric Dentistry to provide the care your child needs to have a healthy, happy smile. With our caring team, they can start on the path of lifelong oral health. Contact us today to schedule your child’s next dental visit!
