Pediatric Dentistry

The University of Texas School of Dentistry’s Pediatric Dentistry Department provides dental care for children from birth to 18 years of age whether their needs are basic or complex, including children or teens with special needs or medical problems.

Our patients may be seen by dental students, postgraduate residents or by faculty members, depending on the complexity of the patient’s needs. At UTSD, we train general dentists and also provide advanced education for those who choose to become pediatric dentistry specialists.

We accept Medicaid, private insurance, cash, checks or credit cards. New patients should schedule an appointment for a screening that will include a cleaning, X-rays and a consultation with a dentist to develop a treatment plan. Office hours are generally 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m. to noon on Fridays.

The Pediatric Dentistry Department now has three clinic locations providing affordable dental services for infants, children and teens:
