Hospital Dentistry Q & A

What is hospital dentistry?

Hospital dentistry refers to a specialty in which dentists provide routine dental care for patients struggling with overwhelming phobias and disabilities, and for those who need medically complex interventions. 

Hospital dentistry usually covers a range of subspecialties, including oral surgery, restorative dentistry, orthodontics and periodontics, and pediatric dentistry. 

The team at Sunshine Pediatric Dentistry ensures that your child’s needs are covered, no matter how complex they may be. 

What services are included in hospital dentistry? 

Wide-ranging services typically make up hospital dentistry. Some of the most common include, but are not limited to:

Oral and maxillofacial surgery

Oral and maxillofacial surgery refers to the treatment and management of conditions and irregularities in the jaw, mouth, face, and neck that require special surgical intervention.

For example, oral surgery can involve anything from teeth extractions to surgeries designed to support orthodontic treatment. Oral and maxillofacial surgeries range from minor to extensive, especially for surgical intervention in the face and neck. 


Orthodontics refers to the dental specialty that deals with the growth and development of the face, teeth, and jaws. Orthodontists typically handle the correction and prevention of any abnormalities in those areas. 

Pediatric dentistry

Pediatric dentistry deals with the oral health care of children, infants, and teenagers through preventive, educational, and curative services. 

Restorative dentistry

Restorative dentists are experts in resolving problems relating to their patients’ dental function. For instance, restorative dentistry services can include the placement of crowns and bridges, dental implants, and more.

What are the benefits of hospital dentistry? 

Hospital dentistry can be incredibly beneficial for a wide range of pediatric patients. Generally speaking, hospital dentists have received an interdisciplinary education that combines dentistry with medicine more broadly. 

As a result, hospital dentists are better suited to address the unique medical condition your child may be experiencing. 

If your child struggles with a disability or has complex dental issues, consider getting in touch with the team at Sunshine Pediatric Dentistry by phone or through the online booking tool to receive an integrative approach to resolving your child’s dental condition.
