Dr. Hernandez’s Philosophy on Family Dentistry
Children’s Book Available – And One on the Way!
Many years ago, after treating siblings whose mother had never taken them to the dentist due to her own traumatic dental experiences, Dr. Hernandez was struck by the importance of providing pleasant dental experiences for every patient. In dealing with his concern over children’s fears of the dentist, Dr. Hernandez penned a children’s story designed to help children view their dentist as the friendly, caring provider he really is. His goal was to inspire children to brush and floss and see the dentist regularly.
At this time, Dr. Hernandez was taking guitar lessons. Sharing his book idea with his instructor, the two determined that, because children love music, an album would be a great complement to the children’s book. And thus Captain Oral and the Toothbugs were born. They can be found at our Pacific Beach Smile Studio.
Dr. Hernandez is also working on a second children’s dental book, which is greatly anticipated.
