In honor of National Dentist’s Day, we wanted to highlight our very own contributor, dentist and friend, Jami Jo Studer! Jami Jo has been a dentist for years and has shared her knowledge with local moms to help promote children’s oral health through the Greenville Mom Collective. Here is a little more information about one of our most favorite dentists in the area!
How long have you been a dentist?
I have been practicing dentistry for 13 years.
What do you love the most about your job?
The thing I love most about my job is helping people, whether it is getting them out of pain or helping their smile become more beautiful.
What helpful tips would you give to moms for their kids’ oral health?
The absolute, biggest helpful tip I can give for kids oral health is to not pick up the sugary drink habit. Liquid sugar loves to sit at the gum line and cause cavities. This habit, when started at an early age can cause lifelong dental problems. Secondly, getting your kids to love coming to the dentist will help them become great future dental patients. That will set them up for success their entire life!
We’re so glad to have a dentist on our team and hope that you will enjoy connecting with her through her writing here. If you’d like to learn more about Jami Jo’s dentist practice, you can visit them at Family Health Dental, Greenridge.
