Oregon Academy of Pediatric Dentistry
We are the membership organization representing the specialty of pediatric dentistry in Oregon. Our members serve as primary care and specialty providers for children throughout the state of Oregon from infancy through adolescence. Our pediatric dentists provide advanced, specialty-level care for infants, children, adolescents and patients with special health care needs; and are the primary contributors to professional education programs and scholarly works concerning children's dental care.

The OAPD is a state component of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), which is the recognized authority on pediatric oral health care and leader in several prominent areas including:

•  Development of oral health policies and clinical guidelines for pediatric dentistry
•  Advocacy for children's oral health care before legislatures and government agencies
•  Dissemination of information to parents, guardians and other caregivers about children's oral health care
•  Continuing professional education for pediatric dentists and general dentists who treat children

Specific information provided on the OAPD website is provided in order to assist pediatric dentists in Oregon, and their staff, in making clinical decisions regarding the clinical care of their patients and cannot substitute for the individual judgment brought to each clinical situation by the patient's pediatric dentist. Scientific recommendations should be used with the clear understanding that continued research may result in new knowledge or recommendations.

For Parents: Accessing health information on a website should be not considered a substitute for or an alternative to a family consulting directly with their child's pediatric dentist. This website does not provide clinical diagnosis or treatment recommendations, or render any opinion concerning the quality of care provided by any specific pediatric dentist to an individual patient. The OAPD does not intervene or mediate in communications between families and their child's pediatric dentist.
