What is a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist?

Board Certified in Pediatric Dentistry, what does this title mean?  Dr. Fuller of Pediatric Dentistry of Redlands and Associates, of Redlands, CA explains,  "It is a validation from your peers that you are competent in all aspects of your profession." Before one can take the board exams,  general dentists must apply and be accepted into a 2 to 3 year residency program after completing their general dental degree.  While in their residency program, residents  are trained in child development, restorative/surgical techniques, sedation and behavioral management.

Once the program is complete, the now certified Pediatric Dentist may choose to proceed with the steps to become a Diplomate for the American Academy in Pediatric Dentistry.  The requirements include passing a written exam and as well as an oral exam in front of a Board of Examiners.

A Diplomate in Pediatric Dentistry is required to take a higher level of continuing education specific to children each year in addition to normal requirements.

  5. My kids have been so excited to go to their first dentist appointment. I was relieved I found a family dentist who was so great with kids as well as adults. I had no idea how great Dentists could be with keeping kids calm during their procedures!
