Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric dentistry (Pedodontics or Paedodontics) is a branch of dentistry which deals with the dental and oral health management and treatment of children from birth to adolescence. The Pediatric dentists aid in maintenance and promotion of dental health of children.

Pediatric dentistry is an age-defined specialty that provides both primary and comprehensive preventive and therapeutic oral health care for infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health care needs. Pediatric dentistry encompasses a variety of disciplines, techniques, procedures, and skills that share a common basis with other specialties, but are modified and adapted to the unique requirements of infants, children, adolescents, and those with special health care needs.
