The Difference Between a Dentist and a Pediatric Dentist

The Difference Between a Dentist and a Pediatric Dentist

We get asked the question, “What is the difference between a dentist and a pediatric dentist”. The short answer is 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.
