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.
