We’d like to introduce you to Delta Dental dentist, Dr. Brooklyn Hagerman of Warren & Hagerman Family Dentistry in Litchfield Park. Dr. Hagerman is a family dentist who treats patients of all ages. She offers comprehensive dental care, including restorative and cosmetic dentistry.
What made you decide to become a dentist?
My brother-in-law is a dentist and I learned a lot about the profession from him. I really enjoy working with my patients. I also like the work-family balance that dentistry allows me to have.
What is your specialty/area of interest?
I work in general dentistry. I see patients of all ages.
Do you brush and floss as much as you recommend?
Yes! I practice what I preach. I am also an avid water pick user!
What is your favorite flavor floss?
Listerine Ultra Clean Mint Floss is my favorite!
Electric or manual toothbrush?
I recommend an electric toothbrush for my patients. I also use an electric toothbrush for myself. I believe the electric toothbrush does a better job than a manual toothbrush and prevents trauma from brushing too hard.
Which celebrity has the best smile and why?
Adam Levine and 50 Cent. The first thing you notice about them is their smiles.
If you could tell patients to stop doing one thing, what would it be?
I would ask patients to stop putting off treatment because the issue will only continue to get worse.
What is the best dental advice you’ve ever received?
Life is short – smile while you still have teeth.
What is the best thing about being a Delta Dental dentist?
My office enjoys working with a group of professionals who allow us to provide high-quality dental care to patients. Delta Dental offers patients exceptional benefits.
What is your favorite dentist joke?
Q: How are false teeth like the stars?
A: They both come out at night!
What are three things that always make you smile?
- My children – I have 3 boys
- Vans tennis shoes
- My patients
Children’s Dental Health Month is coming up in February. What is the most important thing you want parents to know about caring for their child’s teeth?
Start an oral health care routine with your kids early. Get them used to brushing and flossing and encourage them to avoid sugary snacks and drinks.
If you were stuck on a desert island, what three items would you bring?
- A plane
