What is a Pediatric Dentist?

Pediatric dentists specialize in children’s oral health from infancy through age 18. Their education and training are extensive. In addition to being qualified dentists, they must complete two years of advanced, specialized training in children’s dentistry.

The pediatric dentist also is uniquely qualified to treat those with mental, physical and emotional challenges.
