Serving Georgetown, Round Rock, and Austin, Texas
A lot has changed over the last 100 years in every aspect of our lives. The Ford Model T was the state of the art and we had just won the war to end all wars. The biggest crisis facing the world was Influenza and the life expectancy was still less than 50 years old! When it comes to dental issues, floss was unheard of and toothbrushes were still made with animal hair but were as likely to not be used at all!
Dental care was largely mercury-silver fillings because we still didn’t realize mercury was toxic to humans and it was cheap and easy to place. Plus the only real options were gold crowns or extracting teeth! Between the terrible lack of understanding of the mouth and the lack of any knowled... Read More
Growing Pains… Thank you!
For those of you who have been in the office recently, you can tell that we have been up to something! We tried to keep it quiet, but it’s hard to miss the holes in the roof or the fact that there is a huge stairwell in the middle of the office! Since the cat’s out of the bag and it’s obvious that we are remodeling, we thought we would share what’s going on! There are two very cool reasons behind this so if you are interested, take a minute and read through our big news!
We have found ourselves in a very cool position where the support and loyalty of the patients in our practice has led to ongoing referrals of your family and friends. Thank you so mu... Read More

Listening to the fireworks outside reminds me of my daughter's senior year trip to Times Square for the New Year a couple years ago... It was on her bucket list - and it should have been on mine! If you have a minute and are curious - here's what happened...
That picture is so awesome! I loved the experience - and for those who aren't aware, it is a flat-out mess!! For anyone interested... here's our tale of Times Square New Year's Eve.
No alcohol allowed - and it is not a good idea anyway with the length of time outside like that... not really a horrible thing but the first NYE since I was in High School that didn't include it!

It’s hard to believe another Thanksgiving is behind us, and this year is almost over! We are on the countdown to Christmas and the holiday season and it has finally gotten cold. Well, cool. Sorta. Texas cold anyway so it isn't 90 degrees out!
This is one of our favorite times of the year with holiday cheer everywhere you look! Mistletoe and sparkling lights and the smell of cinnamon and spice wafting through the air makes lugging a coat and gloves seem like a treat! If you haven’t already tried it, Starbucks has a Caramel Apple Spice that is worth the daily dose of sugar!!
The other thing that always happens this time of the year is the close of the annual insurance bene... Read More
More about this trick below, but the main thing is every year hundreds of thousands of dollars of insurance money available to help people is kept by the insurance company as it goes unused and the ‘benefit’ lapses. Like cell phone companies used to get away with stealing when they charged you for minutes, insurance companies do a money grab at the end of every year and that time is coming up again! Make sure that any dental care you might benefit from is completed before the end of the year so you can utilize the money you are due – there’s still time, so use it or lose it!!

‘…UGH!!! Another night of laying awake… listening to him snore… wishing the poke in the ribs would still work… wishing he would roll over so I could sleep!! I hate that feeling of being both mad and scared at night. Mad because he makes so much noise all night long, and scared because sometimes it sounds like he stops breathing completely!!’
If this sounds like a night at your house, there is so much more to the story, and so much you can do to enjoy a better and healthier life!! In terms of the science on snoring, not everyone who is snoring is dealing with anything beyond snoring, but for those who snore loudly, the VAST majority of them have an airway problem as well as a f...

In the midst of all that, we wanted to remind you that it’s the perfect time to make sure you reserve some time to take care of momma! Something as simple as taking an hour to do the in-office Zoom! Whitening can make your smile sparkle again can make you feel like a new woman! Of course, traditionally we see that mom comes last – after the kids and after the house and after the dogs and after the groc... Read More
June is Headache Awareness Month and the perfect time to take a few minutes to explore how and why dentistry can help to eliminate headaches and migraines! A Whole Health approach to your dental care is likely the perfect solution to chronic pain in the head and neck.
Unfortunately, headache is poorly understood and poorly treated with most approaches being minimally beneficial or very temporary. The symptoms are sort of managed with medication like Imitrex for migraines or Excedrin for a ‘regular headaches’ and the suggestion is always to minimize stress and it will get better. While a stress-free life sounds like a great thing, it’s also nearly impossible and stress isn’t really the cause anyway!... Read More
