North Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) September 05, 2014
It’s that time again when the kids go back to school and the shopping for school supplies, clothing and other necessities has been done. However, many parents may overlook the need to have a “back to school” dental checkup, and Noho Dental Group is proud to dedicate Tuesday, September 9th exclusively to pediatric dentistry in North Hollywood. With a promotional special of $59 for a cleaning, set of X-rays and exam, parents now have nothing to lose by bringing their children in to be seen by Noho Dental Group’s Pediatric Dentist, Dr. Chioma Onwuka - a North Hollywood Dentist specializing in children’s oral health.
Parents should be particularly attuned to their child’s need for dental care, especially because recent research in Los Angeles showed that children with tooth pain had a significantly lower grade point average (GPA) than children without tooth pain. It’s important for children to have a healthy view of the dentist at an early age, because many adults that have a fear of the dentist had bad experience as children. With a pediatric dentist like Noho Dental Group’s Dr. Onwuka helping a child through the anxiety that often goes hand in hand with a trip to the doctor or dentist, a child will develop positive associations with the dentist early on.
Another important reason children should go to their dentist in North Hollywood regularly is because they are much more prone to cavities than adults are. Untreated cavities can cause pain, infections, and possibly lead to emergency root canals. Also, regular visits to the dentist help families learn about how to floss and brush properly at home, so good oral hygiene habits are instilled early and last a lifetime. Dr. Onwuka recommends that children should see their dentist every six months for routine exams, basic cleanings and X-rays. Some children will need more extensive work done, such as deep cleanings or possible orthodontic exams.
As a highly-skilled pediatric dentist, Dr. Onwuka’s training makes her qualified to handle the delicate needs of a child; not only because of their unique physical needs, but because of their mental needs, as well. Dr. Onwuka’s impressive credentials include an undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences from Stanford University, as well as a dental degree from the prestigious UCLA School of Dentistry. Teaching parents and children the methods to maintain a healthy smile is Dr. Onwuka’s favorite aspect of her job, she says.
