  • To train board-certified specialists in pediatric dentistry to provide proficient, evidence-based, secondary and tertiary care for children and adolescents.
  • To conduct research that advances the knowledge base of oral health care for children and adolescents, and improves access to oral health care for children and adolescents.
  • To provide secondary and tertiary oral health care for children and adolescents not able to be provided in the community.
  • To provide consultative services to dentists providing care for children and adolescents.
  • To promote education continuity after graduation
