Prospective Students

Pediatric Dentistry MS/Certificate Program

Welcome to the Pediatric Dentistry Residency Program

Our residency program is a partnership between The Ohio State University College of Dentistry and Nationwide Children’s Hospital, one of the five largest children’s hospitals in the United States. Although a private hospital, it has strong ties with Ohio State. In fact, the university's Division of Pediatrics is based at the hospital. The program emphasizes behavioral management, sedation, medically compromised individuals, hospital protocols, fourhanded dentistry and orthodontics.
