More about Dr. Stuart A Pickens

Dr. Stuart Pickens I am a graduate of Mizzou, class of 1976. After completing my undergraduate degree at Mizzou in 1976, I went on to graduate from UMKC Dental School and then completed my residency in Pediatric Dentistry in 1983. I practiced in Slidell, LA for 14 years before moving back to Missouri. My wife Kay and I have 5 boys. Our first/oldest graduated from MU last year – School of Engenering – IT and we currently have another son at MU-freshman and one at Columbia College Graphic Arts – 5/09 Graduation. The other two are students at Texas Tech in Lubbock, Texas. Freshman & Junior. My goal is to make dentistry for children as pleasant an experience as possible. Frequently we find that children who have had bad experiences in the dental office have fears of dental treatment that continue throughout their lives. For this reason, we often treat young children using sedation or when necessary general anesthesia. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry suggests that parents bring their child in for his/her first visit about age one (1) and I fully support that recommendation. The reason for this early visit is to make sure the child is not susceptible to early childhood decay, consult with the parent on proper home care, and provide any preventive care such as fluoride varnish if it is warranted. We also are able to comment on the development of the child’s teeth and growth patterns. This early visit also helps me establish a rapport with the child and build a trusting relationship. I look forward to seeing you and your child and assure you that we will treat him/her with kindness and respect.
