He completed a pediatric dental residency and received a Master of Science in Dentistry and a Master of Public Health from the University of Washington where he still serves as the Access to Baby and Child Dentistry Coordinator. Dr. Stephen is a member of the American Dental Association, American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, North Carolina Dental Society, and the Buncombe County Dental Society.

He and his wife, Emmy, are expecting a son and have a two-year-old daughter, Caroline. They enjoy hiking, backpacking, sailing, and spending time together.

Positive Communication

Choose a children’s dental practice near you where you and your child feel comfortable. You want good, effective communication and education. Look for a pediatric dentist who takes the time to explain procedures in a child-friendly manner, addressing any concerns or questions your child may have. 

Final Thoughts on Finding a Pediatric Dentist Near You

Friendly staff and dentists who are skilled in interacting with children can help alleviate anxiety and create a positive dental experience for you and your child. Have a conversation with the staff when you call or ask to have a quick conversation with one of the pediatric dentists before you make an appointment.

Or, if you go and something does not fit about the experience– the service, the location near you, the atmosphere– then switch to a different dentist for your kids.

By prioritizing your child’s comfort, communication, and comprehensive care, you can ensure that they receive the best possible dental experience and lay the foundation for a lifetime of oral health.
