Pediatric dentistry is a specialty that provides oral health care to children till 13 years of age that is including infants and children through adolescence and those with special health care needs. By being an age-specific specialty, pediatric dentistry encompasses disciplines such as behavior guidance, care of the medically and developmentally compromised and disabled patient, supervision of orofacial growth and development, caries prevention, sedation, pharmacological behaviour management, and hospital dentistry, as well as other traditional fields of dentistry. These skills are applied to the needs of children throughout their ever-changing stages of development and to treating conditions and diseases unique to growing individuals. At Santosh Dental College we have access to a hospital set-up and thus we manage trauma and medical emergency cases efficiently. Santosh University mds in Conservative Dentistry in Delhi NCR
