What Our Patients Say

“At my first experience at the Penn Dental Medicine clinic, they were on time, personable, and exceptionally thorough. The medical history they took was the most thorough I ever had at a dental visit. They were patient and willing to answer any questions. I was assigned a dentist (student) who was friendly and concerned about all my worries. If the rest of the procedures go this well, I will feel that I have made a particularly good choice.”

– John

“I couldn’t have been more impressed with the quality of care and knowledge of the student dentist who I saw. She put me at ease and made me feel comfortable with the procedures being performed at every step of my care. I usually am nervous about going to the dentist, but am actually looking forward to my next appointment.”

Start the Oral Health Basics Early on with Your Children Did you know that oral health has a huge impact on overall health? While many people assume that going to the dentist only affects their oral health, it actually does much more. Among children, the effects of oral health are even more apparent. Children’s oral health impacts their natural development, mental health, and risk for long-term health conditions. According to the World Health Organization, oral health is a key indicator of wellbeing and overall health. That’s one reason why it’s so important to know how to keep your kids’ teeth healthy! Here are three things you may not have known about pediatric dentistry and its influence on your child’s overall wellbeing. Early childhood cavities can slow development.
