Pediatric Dentistry

The Department of Pediatric Dentistry DY PATIL DENTAL SCHOOL PUNE provides pre-doctoral training in comprehensive oral health care for pediatric patients.
Our mission reflects our belief that children deserve the best of oral health care. The department offers a full spectrum of services for all children at every stage of their lives from infancy through adolescence including those with special and complex oral health needs, and patients with special developmental and behavioral care needs. Our clinics provide comprehensive oral health examinations, teeth cleaning, fluoride treatments, sealants, restorative procedures (fillings, crowns, etc.), extractions and minor surgical procedures, space-maintainers, athletic mouth guard, teeth whitening (for adolescents), interceptive orthodontic when applicable, and urgent care (trauma, infection, etc.)

The Department has 7 full-time clinical faculty members who are pediatric dentists who instill in the undergraduates all the values and beliefs of the specialty and ensure that they have the skills to be responsible towards care of the growing child.Graduates become skilled as the primary care provider for the pediatric patient from infant, child, and adolescent and for the special needs patients. The program experiences foster interest in community service and helps to prepare and encourage the under graduate students to become committed to pediatric dental education.

We strive to improve pediatric health care and advance the specialty through education of pediatric dentists who are committed to safe, high-quality, evidence-based clinical practice, interdisciplinary team care, research discovery, community service, and advocacy for improved quality of life for the children of Pune and the surrounding areas.
