Department of Pediatric Dentistry – UW School of Dentistry

Resident dentist with young patient

In 2010, the University of Washington and Seattle Children’s joined forces to combat the growing crisis of childhood dental disease by combining health services, education, research and public policy under one roof at The Center for Pediatric Dentistry (CPD). In 2013, the Department of Pediatric Dentistry relocated to the CPD.

From infant check-ups and early screening to parental education and special needs access, the CPD equips parents with the service and knowledge to ensure a healthy child and uses a multi-disciplined approach to solving the rampant issues of childhood oral health.

Mission

The mission of the Department of Pediatric Dentistry is to promote the health of infants, children, adolescents, and persons with special needs, through education, research, and service, by:

  • Educating pediatric dentists for a lifetime of continuous learning and leadership.
  • Generating new knowledge through basic and clinical research.
  • Promoting effective preventive measures to ensure a lifetime of oral health.

Is there a relationship between physical fitness and academic achievement? Positive results from public school children in the northeastern United … – PubMed

OBJECTIVES:

To determine relationships between physical fitness and academic achievement in diverse, urban public school children.

METHODS:

This cross-sectional study used public school data from 2004 to 2005. Academic achievement was assessed as a passing score on Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) achievement tests in Mathematics (fourth, sixth, and eighth grade, n = 1103) and in English (fourth and seventh grade, n = 744). Fitness achievement was assessed as the number of physical fitness tests passed during physical education (PE). Multivariate logistic regression analyses were conducted to assess the probability of passing the MCAS tests, controlling for students’ weight status (BMI z score), ethnicity, gender, grade, and socioeconomic status (school lunch enrollment).

RESULTS:

The odds of passing both the MCAS Mathematics test and the MCAS English test increased as the number of fitness tests passed increased (p < .0001 and p < .05, respectively).

CONCLUSIONS:

Results show statistically significant relationships

Why Choose Family Medicine?

Family medicine physicians provide comprehensive, continuous healthcare to all members of the family throughout the course of their lives. By building relationships based on communication and respect, these physicians gain a deeper understanding of the whole person, including the range of physical, emotional and socioeconomic factors that influence a person’s health status.

The Department of Family & Community Medicine integrates biological, clinical and behavioral sciences to train our physicians to provide outstanding levels of patient-centered and culturally appropriate care.

Is a Career in Medicine Right for You? — Medical School & Residency

Consider Educational Expenses

The national average debt for medical students is more than $100,000, and the cost of tuition continues to rise. While medical education is expensive, it is an investment with a rewarding career and an above average income. If you choose a career in primary care, there are many loan forgiveness and loan repayment program options available. Ninety percent of medical school students incur some type of student loans to finance their education.

To learn more about paying off debt from student loans, visit the Debt Management section, where you can download and print a guide to use as reference throughout medical school.

Expect to Be Challenged

Medical school admissions committees are looking for students who will be able to keep up with the coursework. Most medical students agree that the amount of material required during the first two years of pre-clinical study is exponentially higher than the
