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."
