“As a pediatric dentist, I am able to influence a child’s dental experience by building trust in a warm, caring environment. By helping a child learn to care for their teeth, I am able to help them have a lifetime of bright, healthy smiles and self-confidence, and that’s very rewarding. Through educating children and their parents on the importance of prevention, regular exams, cleanings, and fluoride treatments, I am starting them on the right path to optimal oral health. In teaching children about proper brushing, flossing, and making good nutritional decisions, I am providing the patient with a strong foundation for a lifetime of excellent dental habits and body health and wellness.” — Dr. Douglas Brockman
