Pediatric dentistry

Pediatric dentistry primarily focuses on the dental care of children from birth through adolescence.  It is a specialty, and requires dentists to undertake two or three years of additional training after the completion of their general dentistry degree.  At the end of this training, the pediatric dentist receives a Certificate in Pediatric Dentistry and can thereby practice as a Pediatric Dentist.
