Pediatric Dentistry


Mission


Smiling ChildThe mission of the Department of Pediatric Dentistry is to improve the oral health care of infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health care needs. We seek to achieve this through service, education and research. This mission is accomplished by providing excellence in oral health education and service for patients, care-givers, dentists and primary care providers and by engaging in research directed at advancing our knowledge of oral health. Our programs are focused on the provision of outstanding educational experiences to develop clinically competent dentists, oral health care advocates and dental leaders who will address the oral health issues of children.
