We had the good fortune of connecting with Julia Servetnik and Chun Yin Wong and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Julia, Chun Yin, we’d love for you to start things off by telling us something about your industry that we and others not in the industry might be unaware of?
Pediatric dentistry may seem fairly intuitive however it’s a much more complex field of dentistry than most believe. It is common to think that it’s about drilling and filling children’s teeth to fix the cavities. And although that is true, it is not that simple. Pediatric dentistry requires 2 additional years of hospital training after dental school. Every child is unique and our approach to treatment has to be just as unique to every child. That means that every day we encounter new situations and we have to adapt like a chameleon to make our patients comfortable. Our priority is to aways create a trusting relationship with the patient and their family in order to allow for lifelong healthy smiles . That quality of care may be achieved by the combination of education, and empathy, allowing children to repose their dental health in the hands of dentists who understand how to provide for their needs.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
We are extremely excited to be a part of Cy-Hope since their mission is so personal to us. We were eager to join this organization and to contribute to the community we are serving. Growing up in low income immigrant households we first hand know the struggles these kids are facing. Having a strong community support can be truly life changing for many of the kiddos. Therefore, for every new patient that comes to our office we help sponsor a backpack full of groceries. We are excited to share that we made our first donation of $1,000! This means a lot to us because the Covid19 pandemic has certainly been a challenge. We learned to make the best out of the situation and to keep pursing our dreams of having our own office.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Friday night we would start the trip in China Town for tasty and affordable food. Our favorite spot is Chongquing Chicken Pot. Then we would grab a boba milk tea at Tiger Sugar tea. Head home to relax and get ready for the weekend. On Saturday we would grab brunch in the Heights, we love eggs benedict. We would make the trip to Memorial park and walk the trails and have a picnic at the Eastern glades. It’s such a beautiful place we could stay there for hours. Next stop is dinner anywhere in City Center. We love Hopdoddy Burger Bar and their truffle fries. Sunday is for dim sum. Ocean palace is our got to. It’s a great way to share small plates with family and friends. The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
There’s so many people that have helped us tremendously along the way. We’d like to Shoutout to our program director at Temple University Hospital, Dr. Paul Bahn. He’s been an amazing mentor to us and continues to contribute greatly to pediatric dentistry. Also we’d like to Shoutout to Cy-Hope’s Lynda and Holly. These ladies are amazing in their many efforts to improve the lives of kids in Cyfair.
