To find the best dental care for your precious little ones - begin by finding a board certified pediatric dentist.
What is the difference between a pediatric dentist and other dentists (family dentist, children dentist, etc.)? A Pediatric Dentist is a formally recognized specialist in pediatric dentistry who focuses on the oral health and unique needs of young people. After completing a four-year dental school curriculum, two to three additional years of rigorous training is required to become a pediatric dentist. This specialized program of study and hands-on experience prepares pediatric dentists to meet the unique needs of your infants, children and adolescents, including persons with special health care needs.

What does it mean to be Certified by American Board of Pediatric Dentistry? Not all pediatric dentists are certified by American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD). A pediatric dentist certified by ABPD is also known as a Diplomate of American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. Our Dr. Robert is a Diplomate of American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
The ABPD certifies pediatric dentists based on standards of excellence that lead to high quality oral health care for infants, children, adolescents, and patients with special health care needs. Certification by the ABPD provides assurance to the public that a pediatric dentist has successfully completed accredited training and a voluntary 2-part examination process designed to continually validate the knowledge, skills, and experience requisite to the delivery of quality patient care.
