Meet Dr. Drew Popper: the Kids’ Favorite Pediatric Dental Expert

Mommies, are you looking for a pediatric dental expert in Boca Raton?

Allow us to introduce you to Dr. Drew Popper!

But first, a short story of how we got to know about him:

Well, my husband once had an unpleasant experience at our 3-year-old daughter’s dental appointment. Although it was just a standard cleaning session, she got nervous and freaked out. Guess what suggestion the dentist had for my husband?

He said, ‘Maybe mommy should bring her in next time.’

My husband felt so insulted – and I don’t blame him for that! I’m sure he was trying his best to calm her down. Cut him some slack, Ms. Dentist! Geez!

Anyways, this awkward experience made us look for a new pediatric dental expert for our little girl. And just after a couple of days, we got to know about Dr. Drew Popper!

Mommies, you must know the feeling when you connect with an expert and it instantly dawns upon you that your child will be in safe, great hands. Well, it was exactly the same with Dr. Popper! Ever since, he is our go-to pediatrician.

And the good news is that he has his own dental clinic in Boca Raton called Junior Smiles.

My kid is the creative type. Sure, we’ve tried athletics here and there, but nothing makes my 6 year-old happier than playing make believe. Avery’s an actor, singer, dancer…and a dreamer. And let’s just say that her dreams aren’t small. A few might even be considered a little ‘out there’. For example: our annual Halloween photo shoot with Sweet Memories Photography (who you should book for your own kids session!). Avery came up with this year’s adorable oceanic theme featuring herself and her cousin Aden!

Yes, like many little girls her age (I’m pretty sure), #dailybocaavery dreams of being a mermaid. Florida kids, am I right? As for my nephew…I’m pretty sure she just dragged him along for the ride (although he is a big fan of Pirates of the Caribbean).

My Lifelong Love Affair with Mizner Park in Boca Raton

A local native, I grew up going to Mizner Park in Boca Raton. It opened when I was 9 years old and I remember being so excited for Liberties Bookstore, Ruby Tuesday and the new movie theater (now IPIC). Boca’s “pink plaza” has become iconic for us younger residents. Heck, I even took my junior prom and wedding photos there!
