Why Board Certified?

Choosing the right dentist for your child is an important decision. When you seek out a board-certified pediatric dentist, you can rest assured knowing that your child is in the hands of someone who is passionate about treating children and committed to providing the highest level of care for their young patients. They can care for their needs, no matter how complex they may be.
A pediatric dentist is the dental counterpart of a pediatrician—they are the primary care providers for children’s dental health, and they have specialized knowledge about children’s growth and development. Specialists like Dr. Joyce are experts when it comes to a child’s unique oral growth patterns, restorative needs, and interceptive therapies — all of which will affect your child’s smile for decades to come.

What is a Board-certified Pediatric Dentist?

Pediatric dentists like Dr. Joyce have an additional 2-3 years of formal training (in addition to four years of dental school) to become specialists. Dr. Joyce is a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry — and Belmont’s only board-certified pediatric dentist — committing herself to delivering exceptional dental care for all infants, toddlers, children and adolescents, including those with special needs and complex medical histories.

Those pediatric dentists who obtain board certification take it a step further by completing a rigorous series of exams and additional training each year.  Board-certified pediatric dentists are held to the highest standard in maintaining the oral health of children from infancy through adolescence, including those with special healthcare needs."
