What is Pediatric Dentistry?
According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, “Pediatric dentistry is an age-defined specialty that provides both primary and comprehensive preventive and therapeutic oral health care for infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health care needs”. A pediatric dentist completes, at a minimum, 24 months of advanced training post completion of dental school. During this training, the dentist focuses on developing specialized dental skills and behavior management techniques unique for treating the pediatric and special needs patient.
