Episode 70 (Epilogue): Pediatric Dentisry

Tonight, Laura and Ryan worked to gain some insight into common issues with dental health for children with the help of area dentist Dr. Glori. Dr. Glori graduated with a doctorate in dental surgery degree with honors from the University of Maryland, and has over 32 years experience in the field of dentistry. She is an active member of nine dental professional organizations, has served as President of the Sarasota County Dental associated, works as a forensic odontologist, and contributes her time and expertise regularly to charitable events providing dental care to underserved populations. She also participates in the National Organization of Women, La Leche League, Holistic Moms Network, and Breastfeeding Advocates of Sarasota County.

Dr. Glori  began by talking with us about the ways in which children's dental health can be affected in pregnancy, and how feeding postpartum may affect jaw and tooth development. She also providing us with some recommendations for teething troubles, suggestions for making teeth brushing fun for children, and weighed in on the Fluoride vs. Xylitol debate. She also discussed the importance of a gentle dentist experience, steps which can be taken to calm children during visit to the dentist, and the importance of a good relationship between children and their dentist.
