The division was formally founded in 1955 when Children's Hospital established an affiliation with a local
group of Cincinnati citizens, The Children's Dental Care Foundation. The division has grown and prospered
and is now nationally and internationally recognized for its excellent residency training and clinical programs.
The training program, located on the Clifton campus, accepts five residents each year and has a total of
eleven residents (one is enrolled by the United States Air Force). Extensive clinical experience is provided in
child behavior management, sedation, patient care in the operating room, special needs patients, interceptive
orthodontics, emergency care, disease prevention, craniofacial care, and well child care. A didactic program,
provided by the faculty and consultants, supports the clinical experience and includes seminars, lectures,
case presentations, and one on one teaching in the clinic and operating room.
Each faculty member maintains a clinical practice and each has special interests. All faculty teaching
residents with one exception are Board certified in Pediatric Dentistry. The faculty group provides expertise in
cleft lip and palate orthopedics for neonates, orthodontic care for patients with craniofacial conditions, oral
care for burn patients, infant dental care, sedation and general anesthesiology management, patients with
special medical, physical, or mental challenges, and dento-alveolar trauma.
Specialty clinics meet monthly in the division and include endodontics, periodontics, esthetics and oral
surgery. A weekly hematology clinic is staffed in the Outpatient Hematology Clinic.
The division operates three off campus offices in Cincinnati suburban locations to provide dental care in the
community. Each office employs a pediatric dentist, a full support staff and delivers comprehensive dental
The Craniofacial Team, a multi-disciplined group, meets regularly in the division and provides comprehensive
care in one location. Patients are cared for from birth to young adulthood. Specialists include audiology,
dentistry, genetics, language disorders, nutrition, oral surgery, orthodontics, otolaryngology, pediatrics, plastic
surgery and psychology. The team is a leader regionally and has an excellent national reputation.

The Division of Pediatric Dentistry experienced a very busy clinical year. While outpatient clinical visits
decreased from 38,531 to 35,313 with the closure of the Harrison Satellite, outpatient surgeries increased
16% from 1,362 to 1,583.
We have continued to build on our collaboration with other services. Dr. Marie Callen is our lead professional
in this endeavor. She currently serves on the Fanconi Anemia Team, and the Epidermolysis Bullosa Team.
She also continues her work with liver transplant patients, cardiac surgery, and hematology/oncology. Her
skills and knowledge are a valuable community resource.
Dr. Murray Dock and Dr. William Greenhill surgically implant an adjustable nasal alveolar appliance to non-
surgically perfect nasal anatomy in cleft lip and palate patients.
The Children's Dental Care Foundation, a local group of business and professional volunteers that partners
with the CCHMC Division of Pediatric Dentistry, had a strong fundraising year, providing $75,000 for dental
care for underserved children.
Our faculty is providing pediatric dental training for four general practice residents from University Hospital.
The summer dental extern program which offers senior dental students a rotation in our dental service hosted
several students. The students come from dental schools around the country.
Our faculty are involved with a number of national organizations. Dr. Dock serves as a site consultant on the
Commission of Dental Accreditation. Dr. William Greenhill was selected to serve on the Advisory Council of
the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. Iris Sageser serves on Education and International Relations
committees for the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association. Dr. Wilson is Director of the American
Academy of Pediatric Dentistry-sponsored course on Contemporary Sedation, is a member of the Academy's
Sedation Committee, and is a consulting editor of Anesthesia Progress. He serves on the Administrative
Board of the Council of Hospitals and Advanced Education Programs of the American Dental Education
Association. Dr. Wilson serves as a Foundation member of Eastern Illinois University.
