A Guide to Dental Roles at UPD

A Guide to Dental Roles at UPD

Specialization in Pediatric Dentistry

University Pediatric Dentistry started in 1989 as a way for pediatric dental residents to gain clinical understanding of advanced diagnostic and surgical procedures. While working at our offices, residents also gain knowledge of child psychology and clinical management, oral pathology, child-related pharmacology, radiology, child development, management of oral/facial trauma, care for patients with special needs, conscious sedation, and general anesthesia. 

Since our founding, we’ve expanded to multiple locations throughout the Buffalo region specializing in virtually every aspect of infant to adult oral health care, from simple check-ups to complex oral surgeries. We are the Western New York dental health care experts.

At UPD, we have fifteen wonderful dentists, some of which are faculty and teachers at the University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine. They are all highly trained in their area of expertise. Our team of dentists work together to ensure the oral health of our community alongside residents, dental assistants, dental hygienists, surgical technicians, clerical staff, and administration.

That being said, let’s talk about some of the roles you will see across our seven sites.



Kaleida Health Shares an Important Message With Us

ERIE COUNTY, NY - The holidays are a time for family, friends and festive gatherings. But they can also be a time for potential poisoning incidents involving medication, especially in children. That is why the Erie County Department of Health (ECDOH) and the Department of Social Services are reminding parents and caregivers to make medication safety a priority during this holiday season.

Here are some safety tips to keep your family safe this upcoming holiday season:

  • All prescription medications, over-the-counter drugs, vitamins and supplements should be stored securely, out of reach of children and pets. This includes pills, drops, liquids, creams and medications administered by injection.
  • Dispose of unused or expired medications at community kiosks – there are dozens in Erie County; see thepointny.org.
  • Anyone who has recently started taking a new drug should inform their family members about potential side effects if needed.
  • Do not share prescription medications with others. Take prescription medications only under the guidance of a doctor or health care provider.
  • Add the Poison Control number to your phone: 1-800-222-1222. Trained specialists answer these calls 24/7.

Erie County Commissioner of Health Dr. Gale Burstein and Commissioner of Senior Services Angela Marinucci are reinforcing these precautions for the holiday season.
