What is a Pediatric Dentist?

Pediatric dentists are the pediatricians of dentistry. Pediatric dentists are primary and specialty oral care providers for infants and children through adolescence. A pediatric dentist has two to three years specialty training following dental school and limits his/her practice to treating children only. This specialty training involves child psychology and development, behavior guidance techniques, treating patients with complex medical histories, and treating patients under sedation and general anesthesia. Pediatric dentists often work very closely with other health care providers to ensure that oral health care needs are integrated with a child’s general health care. For more information, please visit the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
