Department of Pediatric Dentistry

 

Pediatric dentistry is an age-defined specialty (mainly for children under the age of 12) that provides both primary and comprehensive preventive and therapeutic oral health care for infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health care needs. Pediatric dentists modify patients’ behaviors by using the principles of learning theory, or use sedation and general anesthesia to manage the behavior of pediatric patients undergoing dental procedure. The goals of behavior management are to establish communication, alleviate fear and anxiety, deliver quality dental care, build a trusting relationship between dentist/staff and child/parent, and promote the child’s positive attitude toward oral health care. Pediatric dentistry specialties include: behavior management, oral hygiene instruction, treatment of dental trauma, prevention and restoration of dental caries, and interceptive orthodontic treatment. Department of pediatric dentistry of TMUH is a specialist training institution certified by Taiwan Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
