Taking good care of the smile is vitally important for preventing cavities in adults and children in the Stokes, NC area. Attention to dental care is often ignored by patients who do not brush and floss their teeth every day or who avoid visiting the dentist. Children who visit the practice of Dr. Steven L. Hatcher, DDS are exposed to a positive, kid-friendly environment with a board certified pediatric dentist, Dr. Sona Isharani. She is the wife of Dr. Steven L. Hatcher, DDS and works closely with the younger patients who visit their facility.
Pediatric dentistry is a specific field of dentistry that focuses on the health of younger patient smiles. Children who start young in taking good care of their smile will often enjoy the benefits for many years to come. Dr. Sona Isharani encourages parents to bring their children in early and often for dental interventions to set the stage for a lifetime of healthy smiles. By visiting a board certified pediatric dentist, parents can rest easy knowing their children are in good hands.
Though it is important to have a quality dentist for the family, it is equally important to maintain good dental health habits at home between visits. Parents are encouraged to speak with Dr. Sona Isharani about the many cavity-causing foods and habits which can result in extensive dental work needed to restore the smile. These habits may increase one’s risk for developing cavities early in childhood:
Dr. Sona Isharani and her husband, Dr. Steven L. Hatcher, DDS, work together to provide the entire family with dental care solutions. We encourage our patients to take good care of their smiles, especially parents, as they can be wonderful role models for the next generation of healthy smiles!
