Department of Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric dentistry is the dental specialty that provides primary and comprehensive oral health care for children from infancy through adolescence and patients with special health care needs.

The Department of Pediatric Dentistry fosters outreach and scholarly activity through the education of DMD and Dental Hygiene students, and graduate residents. The department offers a two-year residency program to train residents in the advanced diagnostic and clinical techniques necessary to provide specialty care to children, adolescents, and individuals with disabilities.

Research is supported and mentored by department faculty through the Advanced Education & Residency Program in Pediatric Dentistry. Participation in scientific organizations, publications, and dissemination of knowledge through continuing education courses and invited lectures are encouraged.

If you would like to make an appointment, or have a question about your treatment here, please contact our patient care coordinators at 412-648-8930, or visit the Patient Care section of our website for additional information.
