Behind-the-Scenes: A Day in the Life of Boca’s Best Pediatricians

They say you have to see it to believe it. Especially when it comes to the best pediatrician in Boca who keeps South Florida parents raving since the office’s inception nearly 3 years ago! With one of the most exclusive waiting lists in town (that’s just beginning to opening up), it’s no wonder Boca VIPediatrics remains at the top of any parent’s list when choosing a pediatrician.

A concept designed BY busy parents, FOR busy parents, this pediatric smart office is way more than your average doctor’s office…it’s an experience! One that you have to just see to believe. Indeed there is a better way to take your children to the doctor.

I got a sneak peek behind-the-scenes tour of Boca VIPediatrics with none other than Boca’s best pediatrician (now pediatricians, plural!), Dr. Chad Rudnick, MD and Dr. Paul Gilbert, MD. Join me as we walk the VIPediatrics red carpet, go behind the velvet rope and find out just how these doctors make magic happen for Boca kids every day through a concept that is blowing the minds of busy parents.

Upon entering the office, you’ll find a beautiful empty waiting room. (Wait, what?) That’s because Boca VIPediatrics only schedules one family at a time for well visits to the office. Your child gets a completely private office visit, with no annoying wait times, and no sick kids anywhere in sight.

Often referred to as the “no-wait room,” we wait for you to arrive, instead of the other way around.

Suppose you don’t know whether you need to come to the office or not. We’ve all had those parenting moments of, “Should I take my kid to the doctor?” You don’t have to guess with these docs. Why? Because you can email, text, or call their cell phone directly 24/7.

That can’t be true, right? Oh, but it is. Within seconds of texting or emailing your question such as, “What should I do about this rash?” or “We have a fever of 102,” or “Can I send you a video of his inner ear so you can check for an ear infection?”, you get a response from the best pediatrician in Boca. And yes, their office has the tools and smart office capabilities that can turn your smart phone into an otoscope or stethoscope to screen for ear infections or listen to coughs from anywhere you might be!

If you do arrive at their office location in central Boca, you’ll be taken into one of the 3 exam rooms: The Rock Star Room, The Movie Star Room, or The Sport Star Room. VIPs may also find little surprises along the way like their favorite movie playing on the TV, a favorite snack, a virtual reality headset to help ease their anxiety, or even an impromptu bubble party.

Bubble parties are our jam!

Once it’s time for the exam to begin, you’ll find that Dr. Rudnick/Dr. Gilbert have no opening act and no understudies. Meaning quite simply, there are no other staff members poking or prodding your child. You get the best pediatrician in Boca running your entire visit, whether they’re administering vaccines or personally escorting your child to the lab, every single time.

Sometimes, the exam comes directly to you. That means the best pediatrician in Boca comes to your house for a house call visit (black bag and everything!). So rather than taking your newborn out and about to a doctor’s office, or your sick older child when it’s after hours and you’re trying to find an urgent care that’s still open…you’ve got a doctor on call for you and in your pocket 24/7.

When it comes down to it, your family ends up having a real relationship with your pediatrician, so you have someone who knows your child when it comes to what’s most important…their health. And, these Boca kids aren’t complaining about receiving the VIP service (nor are their parents).

Best pediatrician in Boca
The house calls always remind me of the personalized style of medicine I set out to practice. I get to do my exam in the comfort of the family’s home and really get to know everybody.

With longer, unhurried appointments, we get to know our VIP families really well. This is the style of care practiced back in the old days, when the pediatrician knew the whole family!

The cornerstone of any “best pediatrician” title is the reviews. With a slew of 5 star Facebook reviews from parents of kids of all ages, it’s no wonder families come from Ft. Lauderdale, Wellington, Palm Beach, and even Orlando (!!!) for their child’s care with Boca VIPediatrics. And with the convenience, access, and personalized level of VIP care, the reviews are not just ‘5 star’, they are glowing.

But don’t take my word for it! Check out their overwhelmingly rave reviews HERE.

I’m being told spots are going very quickly! To find out more about your child becoming a VIP with Boca VIPediatrics, fill out their online contact form here (www.bocavipediatrics.com/contact) or call (561) 923-9635.

MOMpreneur Monday: The Dreamland Company

MOMpreneur: n. defined as a female business owner who is actively balancing the role of mom and the role of entrepreneur.

Welcome to our latest installment of MOMpreneur Monday, highlighting Florida businesses and brands that were founded by female entrepreneurs and fellow Mommas.


Today’s featured Modern Boca MOMpreneur is Lynn Sasso, local mom and founder of the Dreamland Company.

Tell us a little about your background…

I was born in St. Louis, Missouri and moved to Miami at the age of 11. After graduating from Emory University, I attended The University of Miami School of Law where I also met my husband, Richard.

While working at a Miami law firm, I focused on plaintiff product liability litigation making big bucks traveling the world (oftentimes via private jet). I got married in 2005 and a couple years later decided to start a family. Unfortunately, we struggled with devastating fertility issues. 

Eventually I left my job and we moved north to Lighthouse Point. We now have two healthy and beautiful children – Tyler, 7 and Stella, 5. I learned so much from surviving our fertility issues. Life is precious and short. The most precious things in life cannot be bought and finding work that you love is priceless.

Dreamland Company

What inspired you to create the Dreamland shirt?

Even though I knew I could always go back to law, I wanted to create something for women like me. Women who had real bodies – of all shapes and sizes– whose bodies may have changed after bringing children into the world, from aging or sickness or being stuck with needles during struggles with infertility.

I always loved fashion, but my nights attending red carpet events and fancy charity galas were far outnumbered by the nights taking care of my babies. After number two, I was beyond exhausted caring for a newborn daughter and a wild two-year-old son. I would sleep in whatever was around. Nothing was flattering. Nothing felt special.

Dreamland Company

Determined to find something with a bit more style, I happened upon a super cute sleep shirt at a discount retailer. There was literally one…and all of my scouring and online searching fell flat.

It was a bummer because whenever I wore it, I didn’t feel frumpy, so it became my go-to. The shirt was flattering without being tight (which was great as I worked to drop my baby weight). It was the perfect sleep shirt for a new mom, offering both comfort and style. My husband loved it. My girlfriends wanted it. That’s when the light bulb went off!

What is truly unique about your product?

I knew I could create something that would make all women, especially moms, feel special, comfortable and pretty. So the dreamshirt was born! I designed the dreamshirt (the perfect mix of a sleep shirt and a nightgown) with ruching in the front and back so it hugs the body without being tight. Made of the most luxurious cotton jersey fabric, the ¾ length sleeves and length just above the knee are flattering on all shapes and sizes. 

Dreamland Company

Most sleepwear is mass-produced overseas. It isn’t designed to fit real women’s bodies. It isn’t special or particularly well made. The Dreamland Company knows that moms run the world! It’s a little reminder that we deserve to take care of ourselves. We deserve things that make us feel strong and valued and beautiful.   

The dreamshirt comes in solid colors and prints (our first collection has 6 solids and 3 prints). The prints are unique in that they are designed by us specifically for our customers. Our signature print, Daydreamer, features clouds and hearts.

Dreamland Company

After your business get started, what challenges did you face? How did you solve them?

After deciding to launch the dreamshirt, I called upon my friend Melissa Wexler to help. I had gotten absolutely stuck searching for the perfect fabric and manufacturer. Melissa owned her own clothing line that was sold in hundreds of stores along the West coast (BJOY) and had a ton of relevant retail experience. We discussed the lack of stylish and flattering sleepwear for women like us. Just like me, Melissa also faced her own health struggles.

When her mother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, Melissa had herself tested for the BRCA gene and it came back positive. This prompted her to have an elective, preventative double mastectomy. When in the hospital, she wished she could ditch that dreary hospital gown and have something that would serve a functional purpose and be easy to get on and off. She also craved something that would make her feel both feminine and comfortable. When I mentioned my idea of bringing something to market that fit the bill, Melissa was thrilled and has been an invaluable asset to The Dreamland Company.

Why should Modern Boca Moms become your customers?

The Dreamland Company was created by two tired moms looking for a little bedtime style. We are your readers. We live for our children, but still value looking good and feeling good. All moms can sleep well in their dreamshirts knowing each one was sewn and packaged with love right here in Florida. They can sleep well knowing that by shopping with us, they are supporting a female-owned, local small business.

Our dreamshirts start at just $50 and are packaged in a reusable drawstring bag with an inspirational note inside. They are the perfect gift for moms, teachers, co-workers, friends and family.

Dreamland Company

What exciting things are coming up for your business?

Our website launched just a couple weeks ago! We were blown away by the feedback we have received so far. We have some pop-up shops planned in the coming weeks and are in the process of designing new prints and new styles.

What do you love about living and working in South Florida?

Having grown up here, South Florida is home. One of the best parts of becoming a mom was meeting my South Florida mom friends.  The support, advice, laughter and adventure they bring to my life is beyond anything I could have ever imagined. The Dreamland Company was inspired by the women in my life and I hope our products make all women feel valued, beautiful and loved.

Meet Dr. Popper, Boca’s Up & Coming Pediatric Dental Expert

Mamas, there’s a new Boca Raton pediatric dentist in town! I’m especially excited about this because #dailybocaavery’s last appointment with our pediatric dentist was less than stellar.

Long story short: my husband took our 3-year-old daughter to her appointment (for a standard cleaning) and she freaks out. So the dental hygienist’s proposed solution to him is…”maybe mommy should bring her in next time.” My husband was so insulted! I don’t blame him either. He was just doing his best. Geez!

Boca Raton pediatric dentist

It was meant to be when I connected with Dr. Drew Popper, who just opened up a NEW Boca Raton pediatric dentist office, Junior Smiles.

A former camp counselor, Dr. Popper knew at a very young age he wanted to work with children. He’s also very focused on the preventative side of dentistry. Dr. Popper does everything he can to teach children and their parents about proper oral hygiene to avoid getting any cavities. That is key…especially if you have a kid prone to freaking out at the dentist like I do!

Here’s what I learned about Boca’s up and coming pediatric dental expert…

Boca Raton Pediatric Dentist: Dr. Drew Popper of Junior Smiles

Tell us a little bit about your background…and yourself!

I’m originally from Madison, CT and went to college at Boston University. Upon graduation, I earned my master’s degree in Oral Health Science at Boston University and also attended dental school there. I’m proud to say I was #1 in my class after the first year and graduated in the top 5 (out of over 100 students in the class overall).

Like you mentioned, I have always had a passion for working with children.  I was a lifeguard/swim instructor and counselor at a sleep-a-way camp from 15-18 years old.  My two-year residency program was with NYU Lutheran Medical Center based out of Brooklyn where I earned my pediatric specialty certificate. I am also trained in general anesthesia cases through Tampa General Hospital.

Why open a pediatric dental office in Boca Raton?
My grandmother lived in Boca for as long as I can remember and I have been visiting since I was a young child. Twelve years ago, my parents moved here full time and Boca feels like home to me now! It’s a wonderful community with amazing families. I am excited to be able to treat them and offer them a genuine and overall wonderful experience, like so many people in the area have given me.
 
What makes you and your office different?
In addition to my focus on the preventative side of dentistry, I try to create a really fun environment for my young patients! I want them to have a positive experience, so they will actually look forward to coming back.
Believe it or not, I allow parents back in my treatment rooms and I also have a lot of experience with special needs patients.
Junior Smiles allots an ample amount of time for each appointment, so I can personally sit down with each family and go over everything with them.
We accept most insurance too and are offering a free cleaning to new patients*!
*with purchase of exam, fluoride treatment, and X-rays

Boca parents tend to be a special breed. How will your office cater to them?
As a Boca Raton pediatric dentist, I am happy to cater to local parents! Each and every one of my patients is always treated as an individual and we can customize care to each family’s needs.

We are also located in the Reserve Shopping Plaza, which is an ideal Boca location for many families with young children.

MOMpreneur Monday: Soft Baby Shoes

MOMpreneur: n. defined as a female business owner who is actively balancing the role of mom and the role of entrepreneur.

Welcome to our latest installment of MOMpreneur Monday, highlighting Florida businesses and brands that were founded by female entrepreneurs and fellow Mommas.


Today’s featured Modern Boca MOMpreneur is designer and entrepreneur Zsofia Inhauzer of Soft Baby Shoes Boca Raton.

Soft Baby Shoes Boca Raton

 
10% Soft Baby Shoes Boca Raton coupon code only available for Modern Boca Mom Readers: “BOCAMOM10”
Tell us a little about your background:

I was born and raised in Hungary and immigrated to the US when I was 22. After studying Hospitality and Hotel Management in Hungary, I worked for years in hotels after moving to the US. In 2010, I opened a cleaning business and grew, ran and sold the business until 2014 when I found out that I was pregnant. 

What inspired you to create your company, Soft Baby Shoes?
I have been a runner and a longtime athlete, running short and long distances. Being a runner, I know just how important shoes are.
 
When I had my son, Mátyás, I knew I needed to provide my sweet little baby with a pair of shoes that would help him develop healthy feet! But when he began to walk, I could not find a pair of shoes that would stay on. His feet could not tolerate the restrictive hard-sole shoes we tried on him. I knew I had to find a solution.
What went into the design of Soft Baby Shoes Boca Raton?
My husband and I did some research asking our chiropractor and our pediatrician what to do. They both came up with the same answer: buy soft sole shoes. 
I started doing research online for soft-soled shoes. As a first time mom, I wanted the best of the best for my baby. But, the search proved more difficult than I originally thought. As a vegetarian, I hated the idea of using real leather. Unfortunately, after purchasing a non-leather pair, we even hated them more. It turned out the non-slip faux leather sole was actually really slippery. The other problem I discovered was that the ankle straps were either too tight, cutting into his skin and leaving a mark, or too loose that he would lose the shoes while walking.
 

So, I created the first pair of what would be Soft Baby Shoes. I borrowed a sewing machine, made a pattern, cut the fabric and started to sew them. The first one took about two days and it looked horrible. It not only didn’t fit well, it was too thick. While making the next one, I corrected those issues. I got a little addicted to the fabrics and the process so I made even more samples until they looked perfect.

What made you decide to create a business out of this?
My son started to wear my shoes everywhere and friends and other moms started to ask me about them. When my friends found out that I made them, they all wanted a pair. I then started listing them on Etsy and we grew from there!
What is truly unique about Soft Baby Shoes?
Soft Baby Shoes aren’t just the best soft-soled shoes available, but with an adjustable strap, they give moms the opportunity to adjust the length and width of the shoes as baby grows. This way, Soft Baby Walking Shoes last up to 6-8 months! Soft Baby Shoes saves moms from having to measure, re-measure and buy shoes every 2 months. 
 
Why should Modern Boca Mom readers become your customers?

Our shoes are made here locally in South Florida. The shoes contain no toxic glue or any other chemicals. We like to be environmentally conscious.

They are all individually sewn and handmade and are stylish and perfect for Florida weather. They have a non-slip, non-skid sole that helps babies to walk and build confidence.
 
Here are a few additional reasons why you will love Soft Baby Shoes:
  1. Lightweight, designed for Babies and Toddlers.
  2. Soft Sole, grippy non-slip non-skid sole material.
  3. Stay-on with the 360° Elastic System.
  4. Adjustable Ankle Strap® for the perfect fit. Mom can simply adjust the shoes so they are the right length and width with one single knot.
  5. Flexible: provides freedom of movement of the foot, which is crucial for healthy bone and muscle development.  
  6. Easy to slip-on.
  7. Breathable, machine-washable.
  8. 0% Zero Heel-Toe Drop.
10% Soft Baby Shoes Boca Raton coupon code only available for Modern Boca Mom Readers: “BOCAMOM10”
 
What exciting things are coming up with your business?
Our spring collection was introduced in March, and now we have our Soft Baby Shoes Boca Raton Spring Sale going on! Keep an eye out because we are planning to have a huge blowout sale from June 1-10. We will exhibit a new “back to school” design in August and introduce Fall Collection in September 2017. In addition, coming in September, we will be introducing an ambassador program.
What you love about living and working in South Florida?
I love the weather and the opportunity to know and enjoy the diversity of cultures.

MOMpreneur Monday: LLScene & Scene Swag

MOMpreneur: n. defined as a female business owner who is actively balancing the role of mom and the role of entrepreneur.

Welcome to our latest installment of MOMpreneur Monday, highlighting Florida businesses and brands that were founded by female entrepreneurs and fellow Mommas.


Today’s featured Modern Boca MOMpreneur(s) are the PR Mavens of local company, LLScene, as well as clothing designers, Lindsey Swing and Lilly Robbins!

girls of LLScene

 A little more about the girls of LLScene..

Lindsey Swing & Lilly Robbins are best friends and the founders of LLScene, a fashion and lifestyle blog based in South Florida. Sharing the same enthusiasm for style and lifestyle trends, the girls of LLScene bring an influential twist to “20-30 somethings” looking for a little more in life.

Lindsey is a newlywed with a passion for innovative fashion movements and Florida State football.

Lilly is a former Miami Dolphins Cheerleader with a desire to further her philanthropic work and brand lifestyle concepts.

In addition to the blog, the girls of LLScene own a full service Public Relations & Digital Marketing firm under the name. They love to celebrate their differences and friendship, which was how Scene Swag, their new clothing line, was born.

What inspired you two to create LLScene?

Lindsey: “LLScene started when Lilly and I both had full-time jobs, so it was very important to organize our thoughts and put together a full business strategy before launching. Because of my background in writing and our joint passion for fashion and lifestyle brands, the blogging side of our business came faster and easier. It wasn’t until we found the time to truly commit to the PR side of the business when LLScene became much more than just a blog.”

girls of LLScene

How do you see your company today?

Lindsey: “Fast forward to where we are now. We are definitely learning how a retail business operates as we open our own online store. We’re lucky to have backgrounds in PR and Marketing, so we’re able to fully market our new line. But WOW, it’s a very different concept– launching a retail line versus launching a marketing and services type of business. We learn something new every day!”

What makes LLScene different than other PR companies in the area?

The girls of LLScene can do it all.

No seriously, if they can’t, they’ll still find a way. In business now for three years, the LLScene team members are continuing to learn more and more as the years progress.

Lindsey: “We aren’t your ‘everyday PR business’. We recently wrote a post about all of our services because I think people are constantly confused about what we do. Because we do SO much.

We’re going to be perfectly frank with you here: LLScene’s blog and social media platforms make us VERY different than your typical marketing agency. Why? Because people care what we are doing and where we are doing it. We have generated a loyal fan base and high amount of engagement on social media.

You hire us and you’re featured on all of our pages, plain and simple. We have established a sense of trust with our followers and will only take on clients we feel passionate about promoting ourselves. We have turned away multiple businesses because they didn’t fit within our requirements.”

Why should MBM readers become loyal followers or even clients of LLScene?

Lilly: “We know a lot of your readers are fabulous local women who love to support one another, so that’s a reason in itself! It’s why we LOVE you and Modern Boca Mom so much. We are local girls who love to collaborate and support other business ventures. We’ve created our business model around fun, fashion and best friends and have established a reputation and loyal following very quickly.

What should we know about the exciting new retail side of your business?

Lindsey: “The Scene Swag line has something for everyone looking to celebrate their friendship and funny stereotypes. One of our most important mottos is: if you’re not having fun doing it, then why are you doing it? We put our heart and soul into everything we do and have fun doing it!”

girls of LLScene
Even Modern Boca Mom loves to rock her “Smart Blonde” graphic tee!
What exciting new things should we look for from the girls of LLScene?

Lilly: “Ah! So many exciting things to look forward to. We’re constantly coming out with new prototypes and ideas every week. We’ve been getting a lot of requests for a bridal collection and a mom collection, so be on the lookout for Scene Bride Swag and a Cool Mom Collection with fun bachelorette and wedding apparel for brides and ‘athleisure’ clothes for all the cool moms out there.”

Check out LLScene’s amazing new line…

What do you love about working *and living* in South Florida?

Lindsey: “Lilly and I both grew up in South Florida, so it will always hold a special place in our hearts. Like I said before, I love how close the blogger community is within our South Florida network. Being that it’s March, I can also say that I love the weather right now, but ask me again come July!

Another amazing part about living in South Florida is the fact that there is SO much to do. I have family all over the country and they’re always commenting about the lack of activities they have in their hometowns, while there is always something going on in South Florida. For the most part, South Floridians love to keep up with an active lifestyle and it’s a beautiful place to raise a family.”

How to Savor Spring Evenings in Boca Raton with Your Family

Longer days and lighter evenings are here, which means it’s time to move those dinners outdoors!  With the recent ‘spring forward’, we gained an extra hour of daylight in the evenings…even though it was a brutal week getting used to that time change. Here are some ways to make the most of springtime with your family PLUS a great deal for MBM readers to help celebrate the minted 9 year Anniversary!

  1. Backyard BBQ’s

Spend less time in the kitchen and take the cooking out back! One of the things I love about grilling is that I can hand off dinner to my husband and let him handle the main course! Whether it be as simple as hot dog and hamburgers, or gourmet salmon with grilled veggies, the options are endless. Keep the kids entertained with easy backyard games like cornhole or kickball.

  1. Sundowners at the Beach

The beach isn’t just for mornings or afternoons. Head over there with your family before sunset for a “Sundowner”. The kids can run around and play in the ocean or sand, while mom and dad enjoy some time together outdoors. Invite other families and pack some Naked Wines and cheese to make an event out of it!

  1. Picnic at the Playground

Pack up your dinner and take it to the park! Choose foods that are easy to set out and fuss free to eat such as pasta salad or sandwiches. Your kids will love the extra play time, and you’ll love tiring them out before bed!

Contributor Leigh Botha only recently joined the “Mom Club” this past August (2016) when daughter Cora was born! A graduate from the University of Central Florida’s Rosen College of Hospitality Management, she has always had a passion for hospitality and entertaining. Leigh is currently a Special Events Designer for Boca By Design at the Boca Raton Resort & Club which she loves because it allows her to use her creativity to bring her clients’ visions to life. 

Juggling a career and a family can be difficult, but she tries to make time for other things that are important to her such as running (some) mornings at 5am with the Boca/Deerfield Chapter of MRRT (Moms RUN this Town) and planning the social events for her sorority’s local alumni chapter. Leigh is especially excited for all the new events she will get to host for her family and friends now that she is a mom and the memories they will all have to cherish thereafter!
