The aim of this clinical residency in paediatric dentistry is to cover the most important, practical and useful topics in paediatric dental practice: restorative and pulp treatments in temporary and young permanent dentition, managing the behaviour and sedation of paediatric patients, basic concepts in orthopaedic treatment, etc.

The clinical residency alternates theoretical classes with clinical case presentations, literature reviews and clinical practice with paediatric dental patients from the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya.


Oral health of babies, children, and adolescents affects the general health of the current child population and in the future adult population. The availability of dentists specialising in the prevention and resolution of the most common oral problems in the paediatric population is therefore essential. 

The Universitat Internacional de Catalunya trains dentists and stomatologists with a clear objective: to allow them to specialise in the diagnosis, prevention and resolution of the most common oral problems in the paediatric population by way of theoretical and practical training.
