Pediatric Dentistry Program

Overview

Children's National Medical Center offers a two year certificate program in Pediatric Dentistry. The program is accredited by the American Dental Association.  The Department of Dentistry sponsors an advanced educational program in Pediatric Dentistry.

The Pediatric Dentistry program is primarily hospital-based and provides a broad and in-depth experience in all phases of Pediatric Dentistry, including sedation, general anesthesia, trauma and management of malocclusion. Residents provide treatment to many patients with developmental and medically compromising conditions. Residents also have the opportunity to provide care in a suburban satellite setting and have the opportunity to understand issues related to access, public health and health care advocacy.

In addition to daily lectures and seminars that require active resident participation, all residents must complete a data collection driven research project. Residents are expected to present or defend their research at the departmental level, as well as at national meetings.
