Back-to-school means back-to-the-dentist!
Is your kid’s smile back-to-school ready? If you haven’t scheduled that check-up, beat the rush. You’ll be getting your child off to a great start for the school year.
  • Routine exams are key to preventing the most common chronic childhood disease: cavities.
  • A healthy mouth promotes academic success. Dental disease was responsible for more than 51 million missed school hours last year.
  • Promote well-being. A child who is happy about his or her smile is generally more confident and has an active social life. Oral health problems also contribute to speech impediments, such as lisps, which can adversely impact your child’s self-esteem.
Mind the time of day that you schedule your child’s visit. Don’t book during his or her regular naptime or right after a long or busy day, such as following day camp.

Scheduling children’s appointments back-to-back may be a good idea, because the child who’s most positive about dental visits can serve as a “role model” for his or her sibling. Let us lead the conversation if you’re not sure how to calm your little one’s nerves. We’re here for the whole family.
Garland, TX, Dentist Provides Pediatric Oral Health Tips
Parents of young children often ask their dentist about the best way to care for their child’s teeth. Even those with the best dental habits as adults aren’t sure about what they should do to ensure their child has good oral health. Dr. Sakunthala Boppana has been helping her Garland, TX, patients of all ages for many years. She offers the following tips to pediatric oral health care tips.
  • Start early – Before the first tooth erupts, parents should wipe their child’s gums with a cloth to remove bacteria. Once the child begins to cut teeth, a soft toothbrush can be used. It’s also important to visit the dentist at an early age. This helps the child become more comfortable with the dental team and checkup procedure.
  • Practice good habits – Children learn by watching you. Let them see you brushing your teeth every morning and at night, show them how you floss, and talk to them about your dental appointments.

Toothy Testaments

Netra C. (June 2017)

"Dr. Boppana and her staff are awesome. I haven't been to a dentist since moving to Texas 6 years ago and was very apprehensive but the ladies were all very sweet and caring. I was so relieved to know that all I needed was cleaning and one filling! The doctor and the assistant made sure that I was comfortable throughout the procedure and it was absolutely pain free. I highly recommend this office to anyone looking for a compassionate dentist."
