What types of dental care do you offer?

Our pediatric dental practice provides care starting as soon as the first tooth comes. We focus on prevention, but when treatment is needed for our young friends, we offer various options such as silver diamine fluoride (SDF), zirconia and stainless steel crowns, tooth-colored resins, and more. We provide dental treatment appointments with laughing gas, oral sedation, or in-office IV sedation based on the child’s appropriate needs. For our patients with special needs, we strive to meet them on their level with compassion. Finally, we also offer frenectomy treatment when appropriate to infants with nursing or bottle feeding challenges.



How do you approach preventative dentistry?

Education is at the core of how we approach preventive dentistry. It all starts with the first dental visit, recommended as soon as the first baby tooth comes in and no later than the first birthday. We review brushing techniques, snacking habits, after-hours emergencies, and appropriate use of dental products. Our goal for our young patients is to educate their parents so that they can reinforce healthy habits at home. We encourage our families to keep up with their dental exams and cleanings every six months for prevention purposes.



How do you handle after-hours emergencies?

Dental trauma can be scary for our patients and their parents, especially when it involves a permanent tooth in our older patients. For patients in our practice, we can be reached after hours and walk the parent on how to handle the emergency from home or meet the patient at the office for after-hour care.



What professional degrees do you hold, and from what schools?

I received a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, LA, and my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the Louisiana State University School of Dentistry. I completed my pediatric dentistry residency at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center in San Antonio.
