Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric Dentistry is an age defined specialty that provides both primary and comprehensive preventative and therapeutic oral health care for infants and children through the teenage years, including those with special health care needs.

The pediatric dentist is required to complete additional specialty training following dental school. They undergo extra training in growth and development, facial injuries, restorative, orthodontic and preventive care, hospital dentistry, child psychology as well as behavior management.
