Too many parents of children with special healthcare needs
come upon dental care for their child out of
necessity or urgency.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) proudly welcomes you to our consumer portal, mychildrensteeth.org.

Through our new site, we are committed to arming consumers with the latest information and data regarding their children’s dental and oral healthcare, courtesy of our members, who are on the frontlines, and serve as primary care and specialty providers for millions of children from infancy through adolescence, and provide advanced, specialty-level care for infants, children, adolescents and patients with special health care needs.
