I am sure I will get some sort of comment like "You are not even in dental school yet, get off of this forum!", but I have already researched this and I am curious if I could have some answers from my fellow SDN friends. 1. What is the difference between a general dentist and a pediatric dentist? (my guess is that it is basically that pedo's limit their patients to being children.) 2. What is the age group of kid's that Pedo's are allowed to have as patients? 3. Do pediatric dentists REALLY have a lot of patients, and can/is business ACTUALLY good? 4. How well can pediatric dentists do, money wise? Honestly, money is not the most important issue to me, but considering the extra 2 years of pedo residency.... 5. Do/Can pediatric dentists make more than general dentists? 6. Do a lot of parents send there children to pedo's instead of general dentists? IS THE PATIENT LOAD MORE OR LESS THAN GENERAL DENTISTS? Please answer as many of these as you can. I used to want to be a pediatrician, until I found out about pediatric dentistry. Thank you! Oh, and I'll go ahead and say it for you..."Cofo...what are you doing? Get off of this thread, you are nothing but a predent!"
