Dentistry

Pediatric Dentistry at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland takes many different forms. Some children require dental specialists for intensive reconstruction work in our Craniofacial Center. For disorders like tuberous sclerosis, a dentist is part of a comprehensive team that ensures ongoing coordination of care. No matter what your situation, our Dentistry Department is dedicated to the oral health of children facing medically-complex disorders and developmental challenges, and to providing services in both a clinical setting and in the operating room.
