“Being a pediatric dentist is so much more than just fixing teeth; it’s about listening. I love listening to the children and hearing about their interests and ambitions.
“Pediatric dentistry has been my profession for many years now, and it gives me such joy to hear from former patients, and they tell me how much they enjoyed coming to our office as a child. It is wonderful when former patients return to our practice with their own children. When they leave with a smile, it makes my day!” — Dr. Douglas Brockman
Dr. Douglas Brockman enjoys working with pediatric patients because they are enthusiastic about learning and full of energy. He finds that invigorating. He enjoys the relationships that develop while patients are in his care, and being a positive influence in their life during each person’s formative years. Dr. Brockman knows he’s making a difference in the lives of his patients by starting them on the path to beautiful, healthy smiles, and ensuring they have no qualms about seeking oral healthcare as adults.
