Mr. Molar

Say “Hello” to Mr. Molar!

Comments are off for this post.
Recently, Woodlands Family Dental surprised The Woodlands Christian Academy with a visit from Mr. Molar. Along with hygienist, Sarah, Mr. Molar shared dental hygiene tips and played games with the children. One game had two "Sugar Bugs" (volunteers) chase after Mr. Molar while a Toothbrush (another volunteer) came to his rescue! The games were fun, informational and allowed us to run around with the kids for a good time. Woodlands Family Dental is excited to have Mr. Molar making appearances throughout the community. We desire that everyone have a full understanding of the value and benefits of good oral health. Our goal, with Mr. Molar, is to engage the young people in our community to make learning about oral health fun and entertaining. Keep an eye out for...

Guatemala Update: …and back again!

As it usually goes with these kinds of trips, it is over too soon. The bittersweet reality of leaving the wonderful people of Guatemala is tempered by being back at home, surrounded by routine and the familiar. When we pause a moment to think back to the whirlwind of activity over the brief week, it's amazing to realize the impact we've had on so many lives. We were able to see and help more than 750 men, women and children in need of dental care. In this impoverished part of the world, these mission trips may be the only professional care they receive from year to year. This service does more than offer the local people a chance for a cleaning. It gives us an opportunity to reflect the compassion, love and abundant living in Christ that we can sometimes take...

The Woodlands Family Dental mission team arrived safely in Guatemala on Saturday and set to work almost immediately. On Sunday, they saw 47 patients with another 116 on Monday and 243 on Tuesday with many more to see throughout their time there. Everyone is feeling blessed to use their gifts and talents in a way that brings glory to God and a smile to the faces of those they are serving. Keep an eye out on Facebook and on our blog as we share more about our trip to Guatemala. Please continue to pray for our safety and for opportunities to be a clear example of the hands and feet of Christ. Dr. Brett Murphey enjoys a short break with Kathy Fischnar and a few of his patients.

This Saturday, March 7, a core group from Woodlands Family Dental will once again travel to Guatemala on a gospel and dental health mission. This mission trip is an amazing opportunity for members in the dental profession to provide much needed oral health care in underprivileged areas. It not just about dental care, though. It's an opportunity to be the hands and feet of Christ. To fulfill a greater purpose. To serve and to give back. Dr. Brett Murphey, DDS is going on his 16th trip and will be accompanied by Dr. Andrew Nalley, DDS, Stephanie Webb, Jackie Meza and Kathy Fischnar. "The bond of serving Christ, serving others and being together in the Lord truly blesses each person involved.", said Dr. Murphey. "I always look forward to these trips because I know...
