To become a pediatric surgeon, a medical degree from an accredited medical school such as a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) degree, a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree, or a Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS/MBChB) degree is required. After earning one of these recognized medical degrees, a residency in surgery must be completed and board certification examinations successfully passed. After that, a fellowship in pediatric surgery must be completed.

When should your child move from pediatric dentist to regular dentist?

The exact age really depends on the child. Pediatric dentists have advanced training in behavior management, as well as unique conditions seen mainly in younger patients. If your child does not have a unique condition that requires the care of a pediatric dentist, and if they do not exhibit a great deal of dental anxiety, then they are probably fine to be seen by a regular family dentist. I would recommend discussing this with your family dentist and your pediatric dentist in order to make an informed decision.
