Community Dentistry, Promoting Oral Health Across the Lifespan

Welcome to Developmental Dentistry

 

The Department of Developmental Dentistry consists of growth and development, including orthodontics, and dentistry for children. The goals of our programs are to ultimately teach and provide optimal oral and craniofacial health. This commitment is underscored by our pursuit of excellence in basic, behavioral, transitional and clinical research and in the provision of exemplary clinical care. Our philosophy of care encompasses the early identification, prevention, and treatment of oral and craniofacial disease. San Antonio is one of the most pleasant cities in which to live, but it represents an enormous challenge, as we are located in an area of significant oral and general health disparity.

 

We are particularly proud of our faculty who have achieved national and international acclaim in their respective areas of clinical and research expertise. We are also exceedingly proud of our residents who, in addition to receiving outstanding clinical training, have an enviable record of research accomplishments. Our alumni, who have attained national and international leadership positions, reflect well on our department, and are also a great source of pride. We are ably assisted by an outstanding group of administrative, clinical and research staff who are valued members of our team.
