What is a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist?

PrintA Board Certified Pediatric Dentist, or Diplomate, is a dentist that demonstrates an exceptional knowledge and expertise at a standard not possessed by other dentists. During the certification process a written examination followed by an oral examination with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry is completed that determines the proficiency of pediatric dentists. Only about 47% of practicing pediatric dentists are board certified. Both Dr. Stafford and Dr. Skierkowski proudly practice as Diplomates of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
