About

The Pediatric Dentistry program of Case Western Reserve University is a master's (Master of Science in Dentistry) and certificate program that takes place at Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine and Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital.

Overview

The two-year postdoctoral residency program follows closely the principles and policies as outlined in the Guidelines for Advanced Education in Pediatric Dentistry prepared by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. It is fully accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation. Successful completion results in a certificate of specialty education in pediatric dentistry which qualifies the resident for examination by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.

Students who elect to complete the master's program pay full tuition. The MSD program is open to non-US citizens and foreign-trained dentists. Foreign-trained dentists must complete a US GPR or AEGD before applying to the program.

The purpose of the Pediatric Dentistry program of Case Western Reserve University is to train the specialist as a qualified practitioner, consultant, and advocate for complete dental treatment of healthy and special needs children.

The acquired skills prepare the pediatric dental resident to prevent, diagnose and treat common and unusual oral problems that might arise during the physical, psychological and emotional development of the child and adolescent. In addition to the oral aspects of childcare, the resident becomes cognizant of the general health problems related to children.

Our program offers a balanced clinical and didactic curriculum in advanced infant, child, and adolescent dental care.

The pediatric dentistry curriculum is designed to have the resident play an integral role in the health care of children, side by side with his/her medical colleagues, and to prepare the resident for successful entry into the contemporary practice setting while providing the foundation for future growth in the field.
