About Growing Smiles
Dr. Mohamed completed his training in pediatric dentistry at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Pediatric dentists, or “Pedodontist”, specialize in children’s dentistry and are devoted to children’s needs. This requires additional years of training in pediatric residency beyond general dentistry. Pediatric dentists are trained specifically, among other things, in growth and development, child psychology, medical complications, treatment of children with special needs, trauma, and orthodontic treatment. During his speciality training, Dr. Mohamed also obtained a Masters in Public Health.
