Q&A with SHPD's Dentists

We sit down with South Hill Pediatric Dentistry's All-Star Dentists to ask them a few questions.

What is your favorite thing about being a dentist?

Dr. Becky: Talking to my patients! They are entertaining and have the best stories
Dr. Erin: When a young kid makes it through a tough appointment like it's no big deal. There are adults who can't do that!

What is your most important dental piece of advice?

Dr. Erin: No matter how tired you are, do not skip nighttime tooth brushing! And drink more water always!

Does flossing have to be so hard to remember?

Dr. Becky: No! Anytime after dinner will work.
Dr. Erin:
No! Name your floss, and pretend you have a date with it every night. It will make you smile and you'll remember it.

If you had to choose between not flossing or brushing for the rest of your life, which would it be?

Dr. Erin: The thought of that makes me queasy.
Dr. Becky: Impossible decision. Both are necessary!

Do you have a sweet tooth? If so, what is your favorite treat?

Dr. Becky: Of course! I love Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
Dr. Tessa:
Id rather eat chips which are sometimes worse for your teeth!
Dr. Erin:
Yes! Donuts, cake and pie... and sourpatch watermelons.

Who has your favorite celebrity smile?

Dr. Becky: Dr. Erin!
Dr. Erin:
Michael Jordan
Dr. Tessa: Mike Wazowski

What animal’s teeth are you most envious of?

Dr. Erin: Snails. I just learned they can have up to 20,000 of them!
Dr. Tessa:
"Narwhal! Their canine looks like a unicorn horn! So Magical!"
Dr. Becky:
"Sharks teeth. The supply is never ending!"
