About Pediatric Dental Seminars

Pediatric Dental Seminars was founded by Josh Wren, DMD to educate dentists across the US and internationally on updated pediatric dental concepts. Pediatric Dental Seminars strives to provide the most comprehensive pediatric dental continuing education available. Modern techniques in pulp therapy, space maintenance, behavior management, stainless steel crowns, cosmetic crowns, and pediatric practice management are some of the topics that PDS covers. I focus my practice on predictability and efficiency and will share all of my "tricks of the trade" to educate other clinicians to provide the same for their pediatric patients.


           Dr. Wren's Bio

Pediatric Dentistry is an ever changing field with evolving materials and methods. As a pediatric dentist, my main goal is to PREVENT—dental caries, dental phobias, infection, pain, space loss, etc. My secondary goal is to perform treatment safely, effectively, quickly and predictably. I received my dental degree from the University of Mississippi Medical Center in 2005 and my certificate in Pediatric Dentistry from the University of Kentucky in 2007. But I like to say that I received my “real education” from the School of Hard Knocks. Fresh out of residency, I started Wren Pediatric Dentistry in 2007 and was in for quite a bumpy ride. There were plenty of ups and downs (a lot more downs than ups). I started reviewing cases that went well (and ones that didn’t go so well), did clinical chart audits, and started documenting cases in 2008. I researched and tried to figure out what went right and why, what went wrong and why. In the process of doing this, I’ve accumulated quite a bit of material and have put together numerous tutorials and presentations. If you or your dental organizations would be interested in learning bread and butter pediatric dentistry from an everyday pediatric dental clinician, please give me a call and schedule a time to talk about the opportunities.
