The University of Washington Department of Pediatric Dentistry maintains primary responsibility for educating predoctoral dental students and post-doctoral resident trainees in the care of children’s oral health. The primary clinic site is the Center for Pediatric Dentistry (CPD), a 16-chair outpatient clinic with an on-site ambulatory dental surgery center (DSC), which is staffed by pediatric dentistry faculty. Annually, the Department provides 15,000 to 20,000 patient visits, including completion of approximately 500 general anesthesia cases. Each year, the Department accepts five candidates to the two-year advanced education in pediatric dentistry residency program which is fully accredited by CODA and a component of UW Graduate Medical Education. Trainees undergo rigorous clinical and didactic training at the UW, Seattle Children’s Hospital (SCH), and community sites and receive a Master of Science in Dentistry degree from the University of Washington Graduate School.
