Seek an expert opinion always. Pedodontist have three years additional training in handling kids. For other problems do you consult a pediatrician or general physician? Be wise and decide for yourself.

Hi there ...in my opinion, for regular check up you should visit a Pediatric dentist because a general dentist might miss some of the problems that he/she is not aware of. So, irrespective of the child's cooperation levels...one should visit a specialist for a perfect an expert opinion. Take care ..!!

A regular dentist can surely review children's teeth,and do required treatment provided the child is cooperative and comfortable with the doctor.It is good to take your child for dental checkup so he doesn't carry the fears into adulthood.In case the dentist feels necessary he might refer you to a Pedodontist.

For regular check up and cavity treatment of your child, you may go to either your regular dentist or pedodontist but as per your child age, you may prefer pedodontist who can better control tantrum of this age group child.

As long as the child is cooperative any dentist can do a check up. However depending on the type of treatment needed a regular dentist or a pedodontist may be required.
