Our practice opens a new chapter as we transition from our former name, Dentistry For Young People, to our new brand Happy Teeth Pediatric Dentistry. As a trusted pediatric dentist in Statesville, we are happy and grateful for our young patients and parents that have been with us throughout the years. As we embark on our new brand, allow us to reintroduce ourselves through the leadership of Dr. Stuart Tucker.

Dr. Stuart or Dr. Stu now continues the legacy of Dr. Rankin in taking care of the smiles of our young patients in Statesville. Our dental team and our new dentist are excited to promote happy and healthy teeth to our dear patients. If you want to learn more about Dr. Stu, you may click here.

How happy and healthy teeth help prepare your child for the future

Pediatric dental care ensures that your child’s oral health will set them off to adulthood with a happy and healthy smile. Good oral care habits at an early age help your children master self-care early on in their lives. During their developmental stage, instilling the value of dental and overall health is something that they will carry on until they grow into adults and build a family of their own.

What makes happy and healthy teeth in a child?

Happy and healthy teeth in children help them enjoy laughing, smiling, and eating without suffering from the perils of cavities. The primary set of teeth are free to come in without any impaction. Children with happy and healthy teeth ensure that every bite of their favorite candies and chocolates requires brushing afterward.
