Pediatric dentistry is an age-defined specialty that provides both primary and comprehensive preventive and therapeutic oral health care for infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health care needs. This subject is taught in third and final BDS. To allow optimal and balanced clinical experiences within the scope of dentistry for children, each student is responsible for the comprehensive dental treatment of child patients. The student's clinical competence in treating pediatric patients is evaluated in terms of the quality of the services rendered, the sensitivity and efficiency with which the patient and parent are handled, and the overall treatment accomplished.
We believe in providing thoughtful, careful, ethical and highest quality oral health care for children which is based on the current scientific evidence. The department does its best to provide fun filled and anxiety free environment for little ones. We have specialized equipment, top-notch facilities and kind staff members that will properly address all the pediatric dental needs.
