Hi Everyone! It seems as if the Pediatric Dental Specialty is becoming more and more competitive these past couple yrs. Applicant pool has increased significantly as well as the strength of applicant. What do you think the reason is?? Are pediatric dentists' salaries higher than previous years?? -To further answer that question, how does the avg salary of a pediatric dentist compare to other dental specialties? Significant need for the specialty across the nation? Thank everyone and look forward to what everyone has to say!
