How do pediatric dentists differ from regular dentists?

All dental specialists including oral surgeons and orthodontists are required to complete four years of dental school. They then continue their training in the area they wish to specialize in for two additional years. During these two years, pediatric dentists gain knowledge on how to treat infants, children and adolescents. Pediatric dentists enjoy working with children and bring an expertise in childhood behavior and management to their practice.
