Jacksonsville Dentist Educates Children on Importance of Oral Health

JACKSONVILLE, AR--(Marketwired - January 31, 2015) - Dr. Ted Pinney, a Jacksonville children's dentist, will tour local schools in February to remind children about the importance of good oral hygiene.

In coordination with Children's Dental Health Month, Dr. Ted Pinney, owner of Complete Family Dentistry, will read and give out copies of his book, "Meet The Teeth," to elementary schools in the Jacksonville, Ark., area.

"Meet The Teeth" brings dental anatomy and hygiene to life for elementary-aged kids. "Meet The Teeth" also playfully reviews changes that will be happening in a child's mouth, such as losing and gaining teeth. Dr. Pinney published the book, which features his two children, in 2014 through Trafford Publishing.

By going out into the community, Dr. Pinney is hoping to improve the oral health of local children and also spread the word of his family-friendly dental practice. Not only will the area schools receive free copies of the book, but Dr. Pinney hopes to make a change in the health of the community.

"Numerous children come through our dental office each day at all different levels of oral health. Going out in the community and hopefully getting kids excited about brushing their teeth and going to the dentist can make a big difference in their lives," Dr. Pinney said. "Unfortunately, it is way too common to have a first- or second-grader who has never been to the dentist. So this is a great opportunity to educate and motivate kids to take care of their teeth and hopefully start the dialogue to get them in to see the dentist."

Complete Family Dentistry offers preventative dentistry, pediatric dentistry, restorative dentistry, endodontics, implant dentistry and short-term orthodontics.

Dr. Pinney, a North Little Rock, Ark., native, is a third-generation dentist who graduated from the University of Tennessee School of Dentistry in Memphis in 2004. In dental school, Dr. Pinney completed courses in endodontics and has completed continuing education courses in Invisalign and Lumineers veneers. He worked with his father, Dr. Joe Pinney, as an associate dentist -- and at a pediatric practice -- for two years before purchasing his own practice in 2006.

Dr. Pinney is a member of the Arkansas State Dental Association, Central District Dental Society, Academy of General Dentistry and the American Dental Association. Dr. Pinney is dedicated to serving his community and supports Arkansas Children's Hospital and local high school athletic teams.

Dr. Pinney's practice partner, Dr. Joran Rodriguez, is a 1980 graduate of Ohio State College of Dentistry and certified by the American Dental Association.
