Dr. Boj thanked the award and all the people he has learned from during his life, both as a student and as a professional. He mentioned people from all around the world, the U.S., many European countries, Japan, Australia, India, et cetera.

He also thanked those with whom he has worked during his career. Both at the University & Spanish Society of Pediatric Dentistry, and his practice. He also made a special mention of all those with whom he continues working today. He emphasized that without all these people, he would not have been able to learn and deepen in his profession, nor continue learning.


Who is the most reknown pediatric dentist in Barcelona?

Dr. Boj is one of the most reknowned Pediatric Dentists in Southern Europe. He has more than 30 years of experience in dentistry and has helped develop this field over the years. He has also published many articles and books on the subject.


What is the difference between a Dentist and a Pediatric Dentist?

We start from the same point in both initially. Both, General Dentists and Pediatric Dentists, have the same theoretical and clinical bases in the common dental studies. Therefore, we establish the difference later.

General Dentists care for patients of all ages, practicing all areas of dentistry. Therefore, they call on a specialist when they feel necessary.

Pediatric Dentists specialize in oral health care for infants, children, and adolescents. Normally up to the age of 18, although some of the patients remain with their Pediatric Dentist through college. The same happens with Pediatrics and Pediatricians.

They are the ones who accompany patients and their parents in the different treatments they may require until adulthood. Also, they supervise the change of dentition and monitor its development. Additionally, they advise women during pregnancy about indications for oral and dental health of the future baby. Finally, they also take care of children and teenagers with special needs.

In summary, pediatric dentists treat patients since babies, caring for them as they grow into adulthood. Also, it is important to supervise the transition from baby teeth to permanent teeth to avoid problems during growth.

At Clínica Boj we treat our patients until they become young adults. Therefore, they are specialist dentists in pediatrics.


What is the most important about a Pediatric Dentist?

Pediatric dentists in Barcelona must ensure that children and young people grow up with optimal oral health and dental care. All this so that they can develop a full adult life with good oral health considering both, dental and gingival.

Regular visits are important for prevention to reduce risks. Don’t forget to prioritize prevention to avoid potential problematic issues.

Therefore, we must detect any oral disease in children early. This includes regular check-ups and minimally invasive approaches to prevention and treatment.

All this, in case they have problems with occlusion, hygiene or caries. Undoubtedly, always adapted to the characteristics and needs of each individual patient.


Dr. Boj, a top Pediatric Dentist, was awarded by the official College of Dentists in Catalonia at an event in Barcelona.

The COEC award ceremony event broadcasted to the other three Catalan college offices in Girona, Tarragona, and Lleida.

Many Dentists and Stomatologists from Catalonia attended the event. Also Pediatric Dentists from Barcelona and Catalonia, and many students of both Dentistry and Pediatric Dentistry were present.

Finally, the event counted with the show of the comic group Impro Show. All the attendees enjoyed the performance of the comedians.

To end, the team of Clínica Boj also congratulates doctor Boj for this well deserved award. The team includes both administrative staff, as well as assistants, Pediatric dentists, Orthodontists and other specialists.
