The name to our practice can be summarized easily into one phrase: “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” or in our case the DENTIST. Our practice philosophy is to teach our children from an early age to make healthy choices that will not only affect their oral health but their overall body health as well.
Dr. Guerrero aka “Dr Evy”, runs half and full marathons and participates in triathlons. She understands that any race takes practice, discipline, and most importantly time, to obtain a personal record each and every time. We aim to approach pediatric dentistry in the same manner; your child’s dental health is not a one-time workout, it’s a MARATHON. Only with time and diligence can we expect our children to learn and implement the proper steps to taking care of their teeth. At Green Apple Pediatric Dentistry we want you to think of our Dr. and staff members as your marathon trainers who have been through the extensive training and completed their race; yet constantly competing to achieve their personal record. We have all the pointers, tricks, and tips to help your child complete a successful marathon and are eagerly waiting to share these resources with you.
Our goal is not to deprive your child of a little candy or ice-cream fun from time to time. Our goal is to teach them the proper way to eat a piece of candy and then properly brush and floss the SUGAR BUGS away!
However if you choose to select the parenting route number 1. Organic food and natural sugars I have included a list of local Austin favorites that are sure to make your child scream for joy.
1) Candy Cart located at 1620 East Riverside Dr. Austin, TX 78741 provides several organic candy options. Dr. Evy was recently wed and her candy bar consisted of several options from Candy Cart and believe us the bar was completely empty by the end of the night. Absolutely NO artificial colors or dyes, NO artificial flavors, NO artificial sweeteners, NO preservatives, NO hydrogenated oils!
2) Dolce Neve located at 1713 S 1st street Austin, TX, 78704 is a personal favorite of the Green Apple Pediatric Dentistry staff. This neat little locally family owned shop makes the delicious organic gelato right in front of you and provides endless options that you sample from before making your selection.
3) Lick honest ice cream located at 2032 South Lamar Boulevard, Austin, Texas 78704
uses all local farm fresh ingredients.
4) Skinny limits is actually a juice bar with several locations in Austin that also caters to children by providing organically made snow cones during those hot summer days, made with real fruit, no artificial flavors or sweeteners
