Dr. Debra Duffy loves helping kids love dentistry. She was the first pediatric dentist in Flower Mound, starting her practice in 1994. Dr. Duffy grew up in Colleyville, attended SMU, and then received her Doctor of Dental Surgery from UTHSC in San Antonio.
Her passion for treating children continued as she completed her 2-year residency at the Children’s Hospital Medical Center of Cincinnati Ohio. Dr. Duffy is also a diplomat in the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
Dr. Duffy and her team encourage parents to establish their children’s dental home by age 1. This will ensure the proper education to the parents is established, and the children of the community will feel safe and at ease as they grow in their dental needs. Providing the latest discoveries in dental technology and products, Dr. Duffy and her team strive to give each child a fun and safe dental experience, helping to achieve her goal in helping kids love dentistry.
Dr. Duffy’s office is very kid friendly. Her theme of the jungle is carried into every part of the office from a tree slide in the waiting room to the large stuffed animals in the dental rooms. There is a movie room so while kids wait, they can watch a movie and parents can enjoy a coffee, latte, soft drink or water while waiting. There is even a massage chair to relax. After the dental procedure, kids can play in the arcade room and pick a surprise of stickers or small toys while the parents talk to the dentist and make payments. Also, she has an annual Jungle Jam patient appreciation day where she sets up bounce houses/slides, free hot dogs/chips/drinks, balloon artists, a petting zoo, free snow cones, and a mini train to show her patients how much she cares about them and appreciates them. Dr. Duffy and her staff are great with the kids. They make them feel comfortable. For my three boys, going to the dentist has been a fun event.- Shama, Flower Mound
