The Program has as its primary goal the preparation of dentists to practice the specialty of pediatric dentistry which encompasses clinical, didactic, and research skills. The Program is a 24-month hospital based program and is designed to offer a balanced clinical and didactic curriculum in advanced infant, child and adolescent dental care, including patients with special health care needs. The faculty will provide a full range of clinical experiences in pediatric dentistry which are supported by an in-depth, critical, and scholarly appraisal of the specialties knowledge base.
Our mission is to provide each resident clinical opportunities in behavior guidance, conscious sedation, hospital dentistry, general anesthesia, pediatric medicine, emergency medicine, care of developmentally and medically compromised children, trauma management, growth and development, orthodontic diagnosis, craniofacial anomalies, and other special areas of pediatric dental care through the clinical and academic resources of the University of Toledo College of Medicine, the University Medical Center, St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center Children’s Hospital and The Toledo Children’s Hospital. The clinical experiences are supported by a structured didactic seminar designed to encourage critical thinking appropriate to specialty level education in pediatric dentistry.
The overall curriculum is designed to prepare our graduate with the knowledge base and clinical skill level which allows successful entry into the contemporary practice setting of pediatric dentistry, as well as preparation for future growth in the field. The program is designed to prepare highly qualified pediatric specialists who can provide dental care for children and pursue careers in private practice and/or academics.
The program has been planned in accordance with the guidelines for postdoctoral education of the American Dental Association Council on Dental Accreditation. Upon completion of the program the resident receives a certificate in pediatric dentistry and meets eligibility requirements for the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry examination. The pediatric program is closely supervised by 1 full-time and 6 part-time clinical pediatric faculty.
