Pediatric Dentistry is the dental specialty recognized by the American Dental Association which encompasses comprehensive dental care for all children, from infancy through adolescence.  A pediatric dentist is a practitioner who, after becoming a general dentist, has completed an additional two years of post-doctoral training in the recognition and treatment of children’s dental and orthodontic problems. Specialty education includes child psychology, behavior guidance, preventive techniques, restorative dentistry, interceptive orthodontic care, and the treatment of children with special needs.

Upon completion of specialty training, the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry certifies pediatric dentists based on high standards of excellence. Certification by the ABPD provides assurance to the public that a pediatric dentist has successfully completed accredited training and a rigorous voluntary examination process designed to validate the knowledge, skills, and experience required to deliver high quality patient care to infants, children, young adults and patients with special health care needs. Successful completion of the examination permits one to be designated a Diplomate of the Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
