Hi, I’m Dr. Young, board certified pediatric dentist, airway advocate and passionately committed to helping children develop habits that lead to exceptional oral health.
I graduated from Howard University College of Dentistry in 2005. I went on to complete a two-year General Practice Residency at the Bronx Lebanon Hospital serving as chief resident and focusing on oral surgery techniques and children with special needs. Following some time teaching and in private practice, I returned to Howard for postdoctoral study, earning the Pediatric Dentistry Award (given to the resident who achieved the highest grade-point average during the program).
During my 20 years of practice and continuous study, I have broadened my understanding and recognition of early signs of sleep disordered breathing, and how airway formation and development in children contribute to sleep quality, perhaps the most important factor in childhood development.
At work I’m always laughing out too loudly, singing (even though I have a terrible voice) and trying to steal as many hugs as possible throughout the day. Outside of work I’m probably spa hopping, on a date night with my husband or binge watching a true-crime docuseries on the ID Channel.
Bonding with families and creating long lasting relationships are truly what I love about my profession. I cannot wait to meet you and your little one(s)! Let’s put them on the path towards excellent dental health as part of their total wellness.
Infants, toddlers, preteens, and teenagers require quite different kinds of dental care. A pediatric dentist is particularly qualified to give the treatment that each age group requires because they have completed an additional two years of specialized training in caring for children's oral health.
Dr. Young will be able to give your child the care they require regardless of their age. To make sure that your child's teeth are strong and healthy, make an appointment right away.
It's never too early to begin
a lifetime of good oral health
