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.
