What is Paediatrics ?

Paediatrics is the medical specialty concerning the general medicine of children and childhood.
Working with and treating children with injuries or medical conditions can require special skills and approaches. For example, there may be psychological factors, family issues, management of disabilities, social conditions and relationships with other organisations such as schools and support groups. Such issues are of course dependent on the social and geographical situation of the patient and his/her family.

More about Paediatrics:

A medical specialist in the field of paediatrics is called a paediatrician. The adjective used to refer to the healthcare of children (i.e. paediatrics), is "paediatric", as in, for example, the "Paediatric Ward" or "Paediatric Department" of a hospital, and a "Paediatric Nurse" or careworker.

Paediatric Dentistry is the branch of dentisty that is concerned with the care of children's teeth and oral hygiene.
