I want to make sure children understand that and become accustomed to coming to the dentist at a young age, so they aren’t terrified when they are adults to get necessary treatment.
Houston, Texas (PRWEB) July 12, 2012
Dr. Kari Blankenship has joined Dr. Louis Bosse as part of the Greenspoint Dental team.
Dr. Blankenship will provide dentistry to the whole family, but particularly enjoys working with pediatric and adolescent patients. In her pediatric dentistry focus, Dr. Blankenship plans to provide cleanings, fillings, sealants and Invisalign consultations.
She graduated from University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio with her Doctorate in Dental Surgery. She has postdoctoral training in advanced oral surgery, periodontics, endodontics, prosthodontics and restorative dentistry.
Dr. Blankenship said she enjoys working with younger patients to help set them up with good dental hygiene habits for life.
“I believe oral hygiene and oral health are really big components of entire body health,” Dr. Blankenship said. “I want to make sure children understand that and become accustomed to coming to the dentist at a young age, so they aren’t terrified when they are adults to get necessary treatment.”
Dr. Blankenship said her goal with every patient is to individualize her treatment plans to fit the family’s needs. She wants her dentistry to help provide for her patient’s health, but also to be feasible financially.
