Parents sometimes need absolute answers immediately, which is why Dr. Sherida Jacobs shares with all of her patients her personal cell phone number. She can be called at any time and for any reason related to your child’s teeth. If your child has an injury to his or her mouth, call Dr. Jacobs and even send a picture to her phone.
She can access your child’s dental records from her home and will give you answers about the steps that need to be taken to ensure the best care for your child. Parents do not have to go through an answering service to get to Dr. Jacobs – just call her directly.
It’s important to Dr. Jacobs that children have a dental home at the youngest age possible. The earlier your child is seen, the earlier problems such as cavities can be avoided. The key to preventing most pediatric dental issues is educating parents about good nutrition and helping families establish good teeth-cleaning practices. Not giving babies too much juice, avoiding too much soda and candy in older children, and brushing your child’s teeth nightly before bed are simple rules to help your children prevent cavities.
As a parent to five children ranging in age from 5 to 25 and also a grandparent, Dr. Jacobs relates to the needs of parents who want guidance and education about how to provide the best dental health possible to their children. She enjoys interacting with children and showing them that the dentist is there to help, not hurt. Dr. Jacobs wants your child’s experience at the dentist to be as calming and enjoyable as possible while also educational and beneficial to your child’s overall dental health.
