The Pediatric Dentistry Certificate program offers the advanced student a balanced curriculum in both didactic and clinical areas.
All application materials should be submitted through PASS.
We emphasize hospital dentistry, conscious sedation, interceptive orthodontics and special patient care. The program is administered by the Department of Developmental Dentistry. It is approved and accredited by the American Dental Association Council of Dental Education. Upon successful completion of all requirements, you will be awarded a Certificate in Pediatric Dentistry. Our graduates meet the advanced education eligibility requirements of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
This 24-month program offers two residency locations: San Antonio or Laredo. Our Laredo pediatric dental residents live and work in Laredo and they participate in classroom activities by teleconference as a distant-training site.
