Exceptional Pediatric Dental Care and Residency Training

Pediatric Dental ClinicThe increasing need for pediatric dental care and for treatment of children with complex conditions underscores the importance of educating the next generation of pediatric oral health professionals. The University of Minnesota Pediatric Dental Clinic, Made Possible by Delta Dental of Minnesota hosted its first patients on April 3, 2012, opening the door to a new era of pediatric dental care and education in the state. The clinic serves as home to the University of Minnesota Advanced Education Program in Pediatric Dentistry and offers comprehensive dental care for all children and adolescents, including well and medically compromised patients, and those who need additional care due to physical or developmental disabilities.

The 14-chair dental clinic – which features eight open-bay stations and six spacious private treatment rooms equipped with state-of-the-art patient monitoring technology for use by faculty and residents — stands as the Upper Midwest’s most advanced pediatric dental clinic. The clinic also is fully integrated with the new University of Minnesota Amplatz Children's Hospital, which features eight specialties ranked among the state and nation's best by U.S. News & World Report.
