Sunny Day Pediatric Dentistry
Face of Pediatric Dentistry
The first time Dr. Rebecca Day was able to guide a nervous child in overcoming her dental fear, she knew Pediatric Dentistry was right for her. Going to the dentist is oftentimes a very scary experience for children, and having the chance to support them through this daily makes her career worthwhile. Sometimes it is as simple as listening, being patient, holding their hand and encouraging them to be brave. As a parent, she empathizes with her patients’ parents and understands the love they have for their child. She goes above and beyond to make their child have a good dental experience, as she would want for her children. Dr. Day takes the time to get on the child’s level, smile, introduce them to everything she uses and never forces them to do anything. If it is a quick look and a high-five, that is ok! It is important to Dr. Day that her patients trust her team at Sunny Day Pediatric Dentistry. Some of the services of Sunny Day Pediatric Dentistry include dental cleanings, dental restorations, dental extractions, frenectomies and cosmetic white crowns. Conscious sedation and general anesthesia are available if needed to ensure each child has a good experience. Dr. Day is a Baton Rouge native and completed her undergraduate studies at Louisiana State University before obtaining her DDS degree at the LSU School of Dentistry in New Orleans and pediatric specialty degree at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. Now, Dr. Day is a Board-Certified Pediatric Dentist with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. She practiced as an associate pediatric dentist in Baton Rouge for three and a half years before acquiring the dental practice of Dr Jeff Ellard, who has been caring for the children of Baton Rouge for 38 years. Dr. Day is super excited to continue providing top notch pediatric dental care to kids in East and West Baton Rouge. Dr. Day and her husband, Patrick Hedden, have two daughters and enjoy spending time outdoors, especially fishing.
