When a Pediatric Dentist is Board Certified it means that the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry or ABPD certifies that the dental care being provided is based on standards of excellence that lead to high quality oral health care for infants, children, adolescents and patients with special health care needs.
Certification by the ABPD provides assurance to the public that a pediatric dentist has successfully completed accredited training and a rigorous examination process designed to continually validate the knowledge, skills, problem-solving abilities and experience necessary to the delivery of quality patient care. Board certification is the highest level of certification a pediatric dentist can obtain. Currently, less than 40% of pediatric dentists are board certified.
A pediatric dentist certified by ABPD is also known as a Diplomate of American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. Dr. Cade Hunzeker is a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
