What You'll Get
Transporting loads of foodstuffs and sugar snacks over pearly cobblestone mouth roads can result in potholes and bridge problems. Maintain digestive highways with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a dental exam, cleaning, and set of x-rays at E.P. Dentistry 4 Kids in west El Paso (a $227 value).
Aware of the typical fears children associate with dentists, the friendly, experienced staff at E.P. Dentistry 4 Kids soothes both the toothaches and anxieties of juvenile patients. While waiting for their appointments, whippersnappers can play videogames or watch cartoons while adults peruse long-neglected issues of The Li'l Economist.
Sessions begin when a member of the staff leads children and tagalong parents to the x-ray room, where a dentist fields any pressing questions about the electromagnetic spectrum and photographs the youngster's choppers (an $89 value).
Once patients are comfortable in the exam chair, the dentist uses miniature pirate hooks and a miniature fun-house mirror to explore wee ones' tiny mouth caves (a $61 value). During the cleaning (a $53 value), kids can watch cartoons or movies on the overhead TV, distracting them from the emotional farewell to their beloved plaque.
After popping out of the chair and back onto solid ground, children—their teeth fresh and fully coated with a fluoride varnish (a $24 value)—leave the office with a goodie bag, including a toothbrush, balloon, and educational pamphlet on the hidden dangers of the mouth harp.
The values of the services cited are based on the state of Texas' fee schedule and may vary based on different insurance plans.
