Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric Dentistry is located on the 6th floor of Moos Tower and serves children ages 1 through 15. In this clinic, third-year dental students with undergraduate degrees treat children under the close supervision of faculty members on the Pediatric Dental Team. Our clinic is set up with an open clinic concept geared toward the treatment of children. Our fees are generally less than private dental offices.

NOTE: If your child has special needs, has been referred for oral sedation, or has extreme caries and is younger than five years old, please call 612-659-4900 to schedule an appointment with the University of Minnesota Pediatric Dental Clinic, Made Possible by Delta Dental of Minnesota. Located on the West Bank, this state-of-the-art clinic is especially tailored to handle pediatric patients with these special needs.
