Pediatric Dentistry

The Staten Island University Hospital Pediatric Dentistry Residency Program is hospital based with a strong emphasis on the integration of clinical service with didactic knowledge. Extensive exposure to all aspects of pediatric dental care is available, including well children, developmentally disabled children and adults, minor and major trauma and operating room exposure.

All dental specialties are represented and residents are exposed to and actively participate in orthodontics, growth guidance, endodontics, general anesthesia, sedation techniques and oral surgery.  Upon successful completion of the program, graduates are eligible for certification by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
