Hey, my name is Shelly Katalgo. My love for sedation dentistry started in high school. My best friend had a severe fear of going to the dentist and I wanted to help her feel better about it. Although I always enjoyed my dental visits, I felt bad that she struggled so much with going to hers. My parents taught me about sedation dentistry and I instantly dreamed of becoming a dental professional. I wanted to help kids like my friend stay fear free throughout their appointments by using gentle techniques and professional medications. Although I opted to follow a different career path, my passion for dentistry remained throughout the years. I will update my site with developments in this industry as soon as they are reported. I will also discuss the benefits of sedation dentistry in detail. Thanks for visiting. I hope you come back soon.

Dental veneers are a popular cosmetic option that can improve the appearance of your smile, especially if you have crooked, chipped, or stained teeth. Specifically, dental veneers are "shells" that fit over your existing teeth to cover up teeth with imperfections. This is a much cheaper and less invasive option for beautifying your smile than other procedures, such as partial dentures or dental implants. If you're thinking about getting dental veneers, your first step should be to schedule an appointment with a dentist.

Keeping good oral hygiene is something everyone has to do. With so many people afraid of going to the dentist, it is especially important to start taking children early on. Introducing children to a dentist at a young age helps eliminate fears because you can make it a fun trip. Add a reward after their visits, such as playing in the park or a sweet treat (sugar-free though of course!). It's a good idea to get their mouths looked at early, as well, in order to catch any potential problems.
