Why a Board-Certified Pediatric Dentist?
Board certification is a rigorous, elective process demonstrating the pursuit of continued proficiency and excellence in all areas of pediatric dentistry:
"A dentist who graduates from a specialty program becomes a pediatric dentist and is eligible to become board certified through the voluntary examination process of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD). The certification process involves a written Qualifying Examination and an Oral Clinical Examination covering all areas of information on which a pediatric dentist should be knowledgeable. Certification is awarded for a time-limited period and they must renew annually to maintain their board certified status. Through this accomplishment, a pediatric dentist has earned the title of Diplomate of the ABPD." - American Board of Pediatric Dentistry
