At Hardy Smiles Pediatric Dentistry, we are dedicated to providing your child with high-quality, friendly dental care in Lehi, Utah, with first-rate treatments and by staying up-to-date in the latest dental advancements. Dr. Troy Hardy is a board-certified pediatric dentist, but just how does that benefit your child’s dental care?
Dentists receive their board certification through the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. After enduring a meticulous examination process, dentists who receive board certification are seen as obtaining the highest level of excellence in pediatric dentistry. All dentists are required to earn their degrees at a dental school; however, not all dentists continue their education through post-graduate programs. In order to qualify for board certification, a dentist must participate in post-graduate programs, completing 125 hours of continuing education each year in addition to passing several examinations. Today, only about 1% of dentists have achieved board certification.
If your dentist is board certified, like Dr. Troy Hardy, he or she has exhibited their dedication to their practice and set a high standard for dental care. Board-certified dentists are also constantly developing further skills and knowledge as they pursue the latest advancements in today’s pediatric dentistry. As a parent, you can be at ease knowing that your child, and their smile, is in excellent hands.
