Our Dentists and Staff welcome you to Midland Dentistry 4 Kids

Greetings everyone.  Our hope in starting this blog is to offer our insights on interesting topics and trends in children’s dentistry as well as some insight into our philosophy on that same topic.  If you are a parent, you may have noticed some rather dramatic changes in the industry of kids’ dentistry over the past decade, especially for those who benefit from Medicaid Dentistry.  Access to dentistry especially among the lower income had lots to be desired.

This was highlighted in the 2000 report Oral Health in America: A Report of the Surgeon General (for complete report, go here).  This report shined much-needed light on the “silent epidemic” of untreated oral disease — and affirmed the link between oral health and general health.  A few years later in 2003, the government, health care providers and public health advocates released A National Call to Action to Promote Oral Health.

Many states responded to this government call to action by increasing funding for oral health.  In addition, there was a concerted effort to find sign up additional providers especially in under served areas.  To its credit, Texas greatly increased it’s attention which has resulted in many more dentists opening offices in our state.  This is one of the reasons we opened our Midland Dentistry 4 Kids office in 2008. We truly enjoy serving the Midland community and appreciate everyone that considers us their family dentist.

A few of us will be writing on this blog about a variety of subjects that will help you better understand who we are and help explain various topics related to children’s dentistry.  Some of the topics will include possible side effects from poor oral health, explanation of changes to various insurance plans, and our philosophy on patient service and satisfaction just to name a few.

If there are any subject s you are interested in us discussing, please feel free to comment on this post or email us  at md4k_patti@gmail.com. We’ll do our best to respond in a timely manner.
