I'm a mom. I love being a mom. I love snuggling with my boys, kissing them, and having quality time with them. I, like all moms, want to do what is absolutely best for my boys.
I take my job as a mom and my job as a pediatric dentist very seriously. I took a lot of time to research the products we use in our office. I don't want anything being used on your kids that I wouldn't use on my own. That's why none of our sealants contain BPA, our fluoride is given in a varnish form (I remember those awful trays), and our entire office is latex free.
I also realize that mom's don't always agree on what's best for their kids. There are a lot of controversies about vaccines, BPA, fluoride, etc. and I love to talk to parents about these issues. Just ask! I will work with you to decide what is best for your child.
Lastly, I don't ever want my boys to be in pain. I put helmets, knee pads, and elbow pads on them. Heck, I would wrap them in bubble wrap for a bike ride if I could. I don't want to see your child in pain either. Unfortunately, I see a lot of kids with painful cavities coming through the office. I can help your child get out of pain and keep their natural teeth. I feel really lucky that I can do that for someone. Keep reading this blog for more information on cavities and baby teeth, how to prevent them and why these baby teeth are so important!
