    So I am getting ready to start dental school in the fall and am interested in pediatrics. I know it is a long ways away, but my question is; what is the benefit of doing a 3 yr residency and getting a masters compared to doing a 2 yr residency and getting a certificate in pediatrics? Thanks.

    If you want to go into academics or public health, the masters is helpful. If you want to be in private practice, it doesn't matter.

    Ditto what was said (in case you were questioning his response). :D

    Some really appreciate the research aspect of dentistry, but most don't.

    UPS, FedEx, DHL, and (if you are really in a pinch) the USPS all come to mind. . . Sorry, I couldn't resist.

    actually, there are a number of two-year programs which grant a masters. check out the aapd website, but a few that come to mind are indiana, ohio state, and baylor (technically an optional 27-month program versus 24 months for a certificate).

    You will do extremely well with a career in pediatric dentistry. They make a lot of money in the USA.
