I am honored to be a pediatric dentist.
It is important to offer children a specialized “for me” tailored approach to dental care. There are many reasons why this is crucial, beyond the behavioral approach: for me, it’s about making kids smile while also finding and addressing problems before they manifest into worse issues.
It is important to address a patient’s clinical needs and their emotional wellbeing. By making those the top priorities, I make visits more comfortable, decreasing a child’s anxiety and building trust. In this, I am able to turn even the most apprehensive child into a fan of visiting the dentist!
Oral healthcare is the foundation of overall physical and emotional health. I want to set our patients up for success in life and I want to see them smile for a long time!
