How often do you get the chance to make a difference in someone’s life? For us, it happens every day, several times a day. Working with children and their parents has given us the opportunity of a lifetime, and we are eternally grateful for it. One might imagine, given the multitude of patients we see, that complacency or a sense of routine sets in. Nope.

Every encounter is a new conversation. A chance to understand better what is important in this healthcare relationship. We believe the Mouth is a Window to the Body. Every conversation is a window to what works best, uniquely and wholly.

Heraclitus once said that “no person ever enters the same river twice, for it is not the same river, and it is not the same person.” This holds true for our experience. Children grow into young adults, parents show up differently given the joys and challenges of parenthood. We meet our patients and parents right where they are … in front of us.

Drs. Rapolla, Lindley and Harrington all trained through Fellowships at Baylor, Childrens Health and Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, arguably one of the best pediatric dental residency programs in the nation. All three doctors maintain privileges at Children’s Health. Patients are referred from across the state and from fellow pediatric dentists to tackle some of the most challenging cases. Yet, the biggest impact often comes from the simple cleaning appointment where the child finally feels the trust, and then the feeling of relief from the parent that they have found the place.

All relationships are based on trust. Trust is found within the quality of the conversation. Drs. Rapolla, Lindley and Harrington look forward to that conversation with you.
