Why a Pediatric Dentist?

Pediatric dentists are the pediatricians of dentistry. A pediatric dentist has two to three years of specialty training following dental school and limits his/her practice to treating children only. Pediatric dentists are primary and specialty oral care providers for infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health needs.

What is a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist?

A pediatric dentist that is board certified has gone through a rigorous examination process with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD). Only dentists that have completed a residency in pediatric dentistry can sit for the board certification examinations. Board certification tests the knowledge and problem-solving abilities of a pediatric dentist.

Not all pediatric dentists are certified by American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. The ABPD certifies pediatric dentists based on standards of excellence that lead to high quality oral health care for infants, children, adolescents, and patients with special health care needs. Certification by the ABPD provides assurance to the public that a pediatric dentist has successfully completed accredited training and a voluntary two-part examination process designed to continually validate the knowledge, skills, and experience requisite to the delivery of quality patient care.

A pediatric dentist certified by ABPD is also known as a Diplomate of American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. Dr. Ellen is a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
