Pediatric Dentists

Employment of dentists, including pediatric dentists, is expected to grow faster than the average for all occupations through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Many positions will open as a result of the need to replace the large number of dentists who reach retirement age or who choose to stay in practice while reducing their office hours. The passage of the Affordable Care Act has greatly increased the number of people with health and dental insurance, which will create demand for more dentists.
