With that said, you might occasionally find yourself worried about costs associated with your children’s smile care, though you know it’s an absolute need. Where to go from here, you wonder? Are you approaching care in such a way that you’re making it as affordable as possible or are you missing a detail? Let our Dallas, TX team help with a bit of relieving advice.
It may feel like autumn is so very far away! After all, it’s still quite hot outside, so thinking about russet-hued leaves, pumpkin carving, and more simply seems like something that it’s far too early to begin considering. However, we remind you that fall of 2019 begins on September 23rd and August is nearly here. The first day of school? It’s nearly here, too! With that said, our Dallas, TX team wants to give you a gentle little nudge to give us a call to set up any autumn visits you need for your child, so you are ahead of the game with your continuing dental care!
Brushing and flossing teeth every day is important.

At our Dallas, TX, children’s dental office, we can help you teach your children to prevent cavities more effectively by offering a few tips on showing them ways to keep their smiles consistently healthy.

It might not feel like crunch time just yet (and we certainly don’t want to rob you of your precious and lovely summer for even a second)! However, our Dallas, TX team would like to gently remind you that in terms of summer vacation, we’re definitely at or beyond the halfway point, which means any plans you had for summer smile care that you have not yet addressed? They need to be considered quickly, so you can say as school begins again not only that you had a fantastic season but also that you accomplished your dental goals for your kiddos! We’re here to help.
It’s the biggest slime convention in Texas and it’s happening in our very own Dallas, TX community! If this is music to your ears (okay, to your kids’ ears), then we are so pleased to remind you that the 2nd Annual Slime Rodeo is coming your way. If your kids are obsessed with just about all things related to slime, then this is going to be a day full of (enjoyably gross) fun that the kiddos will love! (Hint: Tickets went fast last year, so act with haste!).
You may wonder: Why are we so enthusiast about reminding you to have your children practice their dental hygiene before they snooze for the night? Can’t you just wake them up, have them brush (and floss) and then get back into bed, you wonder? While this is an option, it frequently presents a variety of problems, specifically for kids, that can become detrimental to maintaining effective dental care at home. Consider our Dallas, TX team’s outlook on smile care first, then sleep for a better understanding of how this can make your evenings easier!
Sometimes, you might not really know what to make of what’s going on with your little one! You wonder: Does your child have a toothache but isn’t telling you? Does your child think that his or her tooth hurts but really, it’s a nearby structure or set of tissues that’s causing the discomfort? Of course, our Dallas, TX pediatric dental care team is ready to help you do a bit of detective work, so you can sort out what might be going on and how to move forward. With that said, when you cannot find the source of pain or you’re just not certain, set up a dental checkup with us!
Have you managed to pass down your own love of the Harry Potter series to the kiddos? Or, perhaps they’ve discovered the books and have managed to get you interested! Regardless of the particulars, if you’re a family with a penchant for wands and the tales of Harry and his friends, then the upcoming Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Gaming In The Garden in our Dallas, TX community is probably something you won’t want to pass up! It’s not a quidditch game … but it might prove to be just as exciting!
Of course, your kids go wild over the chance to enjoy the playground or anything that could be considered a playground-related activity, piece of equipment, or fun backyard toy. You love that they enjoy playing outdoors and doing physical things, as they use their imaginations! However, what you don’t love is that it seems as though just about everything comes with some sort of oral health hazard attached to it. While this is, of course, something that parents simply learn to manage, our Dallas, TX team is happy to remind you that we have helpful tips to keep kids having fun but with a bit of extra safety in mind!
