Meet Dr. Sonny Sekhon
After setting his mind on doing cosmetic dentistry, it was a realization during residency at a hospital that his true calling was treating children. Kids felt at ease in his presence, and Dr. Sekhon has always had a connection with kids. After applying his cosmetic training to the treatment of his younger patients, the outcomes were phenomenal. Dr. Sekhon was quickly recognized as the top resident in his program.
Upon completion of his specialty training in pediatrics, he was hired as the Director of Pediatrics for a large group of dental practices. It was his responsibility to build up the pediatric patient base in various offices throughout the state before deciding to settle down in South Jersey. Dr. Sekhon has gone on to become a premiere pediatric dentist in New Jersey.
Growing Smiles of Voorhees was born out of his vision on how pediatric dental care should be. The focus is on the comfort of the patient, as well as the parents. The relaxing atmosphere of the office makes coming to the dentist a pleasurable experience. Dr. Sekhon has also developed techniques to treat children in a single sitting, using minimal anesthesia. This results in painless, quick dentistry of the highest quality. Parents are happy that they don’t have many repeat trips to the dentist. We’re sure the kids don’t mind either!
Whether it’s an infant’s first check-up, a teenager’s orthodontics, or dentistry under anesthesia, Dr. Sekhon will make sure that he addresses all of your child’s dental needs. Call today to schedule an appointment!
Dr. Sekhon is proud to have been named to SJ Magazine's Best Dentists 2015 list. Readers of SJ Magazine voted on the their favorite dental professionals and Dr. Sekhon was voted one of the top pediatric dentists and Dr. Allen was voted one of the top general dentists.
