Hurley Nicholas J DDS PA
My time at Dr. Hurley's office has been nothing less than outstanding. Since I had braces, I spent the better part of two years at Dr. Hurley's office. The friendly demeanor of the staff makes every visit comfortable. If I ever have any questions, I receive thorough answers that erase any doubt I might have. The staff's patience guarantees that every patient's voice is heard and needs are met. Now that my braces are off, I only go for occasional cleanings but it still feels like I never left every time I walk into the office. I have no hesitations about referring anyone to Dr. Hurley.

Johnson-Darr DDS Pamela PA
Dr Darr and her staff took excellent care of my disabled sister. They all went out of their way to treat her with care and gentleness. My sister was not a bit uncomfortable during her dental procedure. I did not get the names of the staff members, but all of them, including the front desk people, were so kind and helpful that I felt spoiled! I'LL BE BACK!Georgia Honeycutt
Tips & Advices
The most common dental problems in children are:
  • Cavities
  • Bad breath
  • Gum disease
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Grinding
  • Canker sores
  • Missing teeth
  • Extra teeth
  • Bite and alignment issues
Thumb sucking is not specifically a dental problem, but it can cause a malocclusion, a condition where the top and bottom teeth don't line up correctly.
To clean a baby's teeth, use a small, soft-bristled toothbrush designed specifically for infants. Apply a tiny amount of non-fluoride toothpaste - about the size of a grain of rice - and gently brush all sides of the teeth and the tongue. Before the baby's first teeth emerge, use gauze or a wet washcloth wrapped around the finger to wipe the gums. This motion doesn't necessarily reduce bacteria, but it does help the infant to get used to the sensation of having his or her teeth cleaned.
Children should visit their pediatric dentist every six months. This recommended frequency does not change throughout a person's lifetime.
No, wisdom teeth do not need to be removed unless they cause pain, lead to dental issues, or are aligned incorrectly.
Yes, dental sealants prevent cavities by filling in deep grooves in the teeth. Without them, bacteria can collect in these areas and cause tooth decay, which can happen with children.
