Meet Dr. Candace S. Harvey
“Working with children is truly rewarding. I enjoy teaching them good oral hygiene habits that will last them throughout their lifetime, as well as eliminating the fear of dentistry that so many children have developed. I feel that it’s important to begin teaching children at an early age the importance of a having healthy a smile because they then grow into adults who understand the importance of good oral hygiene and continue to practice these habits into their adult life. When a child reaches out to me and gives me a hug at the end of their dental appointment, I know that I have changed that child’s perspective of dentistry. “
