Optimal Oral Health

for all Infants, Children, Adolescents and Persons with Special needs.

The Paedodontic Society of South Africa is a non-profit organization with the ultimate goal of promoting optimal oral health for our Nation’s children.

Paediatric dentistry is challenging both clinically and emotionally. Most of the time, it is also interesting, rewarding and very entertaining!

We Aim

To promote oral health and wellbeing of the children of South Africa by:

  • facilitating continuing education, courses, seminars and congresses;
  • promoting outreach projects and by distributing educational material to the public;
  • Stimulating enthusiasm amongst colleagues to continually strive for excellence in Paedodontics;
  • Promoting education and research in Paedodontics;
  • Fostering the preventative and therapeutic practice of the discipline;
  • Providing dentists with the latest and most up to date information on paedodontic treatment modalities and materials;
  • Seeking affiliation with similar international organisations;
  • Undertaking service projects which will benefit children of defined communities;
  • Striving to get the practice of Paedodontics recognised as a speciality by the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) and to assist in establishing an appropriate curriculum at the various tertiary academic institutions.

Our Goals

We are committed to growing the PSSA and focusing on making improvements in the fields of collaboration and education, outreach, public awareness, and more.

We have many exciting local CPD events and outreach programmes planned, and are especially proud to be hosting the IAPD congress in 2023 in Cape Town!

We look forward to the dynamic growth of Paediatric Dentistry in South Africa!
