Q & A With Dr. Sarah Villaseñor
I have so much fun working with kids, and love being able to shape a child’s dental experience from the beginning. I chose Pediatric Dentistry because I wanted to help children learn how easy going to the dentist can be!
I’d like to hear them saying what a great time they had and how excited they are to take great care of their smile until they come back to see me!
