Pediatric Dentists

High School

If you are considering a career as a pediatric dentist, be sure to study biology, chemistry, physics, health, and mathematics in high school, preferably in an honors or advanced placement curriculum. English and foreign language courses are also important for meeting college entrance requirements and developing good communications skills. Participation in extracurricular activities will also enhance your background because it provides opportunities to develop interpersonal skills. Learning a foreign language such as Spanish will improve communication with patients and parents who do not speak English as a first language.
