Dr. Jessie Banks completed her pediatric dental residency and internship at Texas A & M University - Baylor College of Dentistry and received her D.D.S from the University of Washington in Seattle. Dr. Banks has extensive experience in working with children who require special needs through her residency training at Baylor's Dental Clinics, Children's Medical Center and at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.
The education required to practice pediatric dentistry includes specialized training of two or more years beyond dental school. Pediatric dentists such as Dr. Banks often work with pediatricians, physicians and other dental specialists in order to best provide the total health care necessary for the development of a child.
It is Dr. Banks' true joy to work with and inform patients and parents on dental issues pertaining to oral health. Her goal is to increase awareness and provide education in anticipatory guidance of pediatric dental care in areas such as oral development, fluoride adequacy, oral hygiene and health, oral habits, nutrition, diet, and injury prevention. By doing so, she hopes to establish positive partner relationships with her patients, parents and community.
