Current pediatric dentistry, made up of multidisciplinary teams, follows the concept of “Evidence-Based Dentistry”, integrating the most current scientific knowledge into daily clinical practice. Undoubtedly, the most prevalent disease in pediatric patients continues to be dental caries, however, periodontal disease, dental trauma and malocclusions affect a large number of pediatric patients.
During the last decades, the progress in pediatric dentistry and changes in the dentist–patient–caregiver triangular relationship as a result of scientific and social changes have led to the adaptation of clinical professional activity and the emergence of multiple new materials, therapeutic techniques, and approaches. The latest medical advances have also managed to improve dental care for smaller and more vulnerable groups such as those with "rare diseases" or patients with special needs.
All these changes are what led us to create "new approaches to old problems". Our objective in this Special Issue is to announce the advances in pediatric dentistry, enabling us to share information among professionals from all over the world.
