About the department

The department of pediatric dentistry at the University Hospital Charite Berlin is engaged in the diagnostics and therapy of teeth diseases in children till 18 years. Furthermore, the dentistry unit contributes to child oral hygiene and organises preventive dental check-ups. It is essential to mention that doctors tightly cooperate with different facilities of the Otto Heubner Center for Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine at the Charité Hospital. Moreover, the head physician is a member of national and international dentistry societies, which ensures a modern and evidence-based approach to young patients' treatment. The department of pediatric dentistry was awarded FOCUS certificates from 2017 to 2020. 

The unit's primary medical goal lies in treating oral health problems in children. The focus includes tooth traumas, early childhood caries treatment, and children with comorbid treatment. In addition, specialists are the most professional in endodontics and children's prosthetics.
