*Dr. Brett Murphey, Ellie Murphey and Kathy Fischnar on the way to the airport. The van is full with dental supplies and equipment for the dental mission trip to Guatemala.    On Friday, March 17, Dr. Brett Murphey, founder of Woodlands Family Dental and West U Family Dental, once again traveled to Guatemala on a dental health mission trip.

It’s an opportunity to be the hands and feet of Christ. To fulfill a greater purpose. To serve and to give back. Eighty participants, including twelve dentist and forty dental students will be making the trip together. Dr. Brett...

When Should My Child Start Going To The Dentist?

Comments are off for this post.
We receive many questions from parents and one of the most common is, "When should my child start going to the dentist?" Woodlands Family Dental recommends you bring your child in for their first evaluation when they get their first tooth or reach their first birthday. Many parents may think this is too early, but it's very important we have an opportunity to evaluate your child’s overall dental health. It also allows us to council you as the parent, and evaluate any undetected issues that may be caused from baby bottles, development or cavities in primary teeth.   When should children start regular dental visits? At Woodlands Family Dental we offer a “Happy Visit”. This is a low stress introductory tour of our office. We want to build trust and make...

Dental Health and Pregnancy

Pregnancy and Dental Health

The Woodlands, TX and the surrounding areas are thriving, booming communities. Many families live here and many more are moving in at a high rate. With great schools, churches, parks and activities, families are growing bigger which means more wives are becoming moms and more moms are having second and third children. During pregnancy, we control what we eat and drink, the kinds of medications we take and we try to limit external influences which may affect the pregnancy in some negative way. If you are pregnant or hope to be pregnant in the future, even something as simple as dental cleaning can be a source of stress and anxiety. Below we discuss a few of the conditions and questions that pop up from time to time regarding pregnancy and dental health. Pregnancy...
