Howard County dentist Dr. Ray Becker is nationally recognized as a pioneer in the diagnosis and treatment of complex bite disorders, such as TMJ. He is currently an active educator for both CEREC and Total BioPAK®. This includes the Tscan 3® system from TekScan. Both of these dental technologies have greatly improved the patient experience and enable Dr. Becker to provide more accurate and expedient dental treatments that restore oral health.
In addition to expert dental care for dental health problems, Dr. Becker is a Howard County family dentist who can provide the range of dental services your family needs to keep everyone’s smile clean AND healthy. Family dentistry has several key benefits for today’s busy families, including the opportunity for young patients to be led by example and receive the dental care they need alongside a parent or caregiver. This can not only alleviate the common anxiety they may experience when visiting the dentist, but lays the foundation for a lifetime of good oral health.
Dr. Becker recommends that children begin visiting his Columbia dentist office around the age of 3, when all primary teeth have erupted. During these early visits, Dr. Becker and his staff make every effort to ensure they feel comfortable and relaxed as they learn about their dental health and how best to care for it at home. They take the time to show pediatric patients proper brushing techniques and encourage them to be a part of their oral hygiene routine between visits.
