Why choose a Board Certified Dentist?

The American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD) was created to achieve the highest quality dental care for infants, children, adolescents, patients with special health care needs, and their parents.

Certification by the ABPD provides assurance to the public that a pediatric dentist has successfully completed accredited training and a voluntary examination process designed to continually validate the knowledge, skills, and experience requisite to the delivery of quality patient care. 

Not all Pediatric Dentists are Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD). It is important to find a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist for your child’s dental needs. A Board Certified Pediatric Dentist has attained certifications with the ABPD, which represents the highest level of credentials. As a patient, you can be confident that your board certified dentist remains current in the dental profession.
