The Boca Business That Became Hurricane Superheroes

During times of crisis is when people’s true colors really show. Although Boca Raton families dodged a bullet with Hurricane Irma, many are still dealing with major issues. The aftermath of damage to property, zero power, limited access to businesses and of course, the thousands upon thousands of evacuees who are trying to make their way back home.

And what a crazy week it has been for all of us! The hurricane preparations alone were enough to drive this Boca mom insane. Not to mention the anxiety of going through the storm. Luckily in our community of Boca Raton, we’ve seen an outpouring of kindness and strength like never before.

One particular business took home the award (in my opinion) for being Boca Hurricane Superheroes by proving that having a “pediatrician in your pocket” is now more necessary than ever. A normal day for Pediatricians Chad Rudnick, MD and Paul Gilbert, MD includes texting or emailing with patients, making house calls and being available on their personal cell phones 24/7 for parents with questions or concerns.

But throughout our Irma ordeal, the Boca VIPediatrics team proved that their services are more than just a pediatric smart office. They’re an absolute necessity for parents! That’s why they decided to open their services to the ENTIRE STATE OF FLORIDA during the storm.

“It’s a scary time for everyone right now, and we want to help in any way that we can,” says Dr. Rudnick, founder of Boca VIPediatrics.

5 Reasons Why this Business Became Boca Hurricane Superheroes

  1. They opened their services for FREE to the entire state of Florida during the Hurricane

Many children and parents were {literally} left in the dark this weekend with no access to their pediatrician at the start of cold/flu season. That’s why they decided to offer their services to the entire state of Florida during the storm. They offered FREE virtual visits for sick children who couldn’t access their pediatrician during Hurricane Irma. Parents were able to connect via video messaging completely free of charge if they had an urgent question or concern about their child. This makes my heart swell!

  1. Their pediatric smart office never closed

While many medical offices had to close during the storm, the pediatricians at Boca VIPediatrics never lost their most important resource: their cell phones. Because each patient has their doctor’s personal number, members of Boca VIPediatrics were always connected. They could be in touch whether they were evacuating or riding out the storm at home.

  1. They made house calls

In the days following the hurricane, while most offices had no power and remained closed, Boca VIPediatrics Pediatricians were able to make house calls to see sick kids. This is another hallmark service they provide for their VIP families.

  1. They utilized telemedicine that saved families from having to go to the ER

Boca VIPediatrics offers two life-changing telemedicine products to their VIP families that no other pediatric office in Florida does.

  • A digital otoscope device that clips onto a parent’s iPhone and sends secure video of the inner ear to the doctor via email. If you suspect an ear infection, you can send a video to Dr. Rudnick or Dr. Gilbert using the iPhone otoscope from anywhere in the world. Your child can be diagnosed and treated within minutes.
  • A digital stethoscope that also clips to a parent’s iPhone. It sends heart/lung sounds to the the doctors from any location. They personally saved two separate families trips to the ER by diagnosing pneumonia via the iPhone stethoscope during Hurricane Irma.

  1. They managed/treated illnesses remotely for families who evacuated

With families in over 14 different states during the largest evacuation in U.S. History, the Boca VIPediatrics team was able to arrange for prescriptions, answer urgent questions and make sure their VIP families were healthy no matter which state they evacuated to. Whether it was requesting a prescription from a pharmacy in Georgia or diagnosing an ear infection in New York, Dr. Rudnick and Dr. Gilbert worked tirelessly to provide care during this stressful time for parents.

Bottom line, whether it’s a time of crisis or not (let’s hope for NOT for the rest of the year…), Boca VIPediatrics has once again proven that their team and doctors are more than just an average medical office. They are Boca hurricane superheroes!

Boca hurricane superheroes

Their level of commitment to their VIP patients and the community is one that you just don’t find easily anymore. When your kids get sick, there is absolutely NOTHING better than knowing you have a personal pediatrician for your family who is on call for you 24/7/365…rain, shine, OR hurricane.

Considering Feminine Rejuvenation? Here’s What You Need to Know

After having kids, things are never quite the same downstairs — and I know my Boca moms can probably relate. I have two words for you: jumping jacks. Even women who don’t have children may start to notice that the aging process creates a “less-than-desirable transformation in our most intimate area. In addition to things not quite feeling the same, they just don’t look the same either. It’s enough to make some moms self-conscious (or totally awkward even writing this article, for instance), and for others, it can interfere with their love life, self-esteem and daily activities. Luckily, we have options. Cosmetic surgery procedures like feminine rejuvenation are now widely available to help you love your lady parts.

These treatments have become increasingly popular, and statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons® (ASPS) prove it. According to their * 2016 report, the number of women getting labiaplasty (a type of vaginal rejuvenation) increased 39% from 2015–2016. ASPS President, Debra Johnson, attributes the rise in popularity to a more accepting attitude toward plastic surgery in general (hello, we live in Boca Raton), which opens the door for everything from facelifts and fat removal to other areas of the body.

OMG, My Kid Broke his Tooth! What to Do Next?

When #dailybocaavery was 3, she thought it would be a great idea to climb atop her bathroom counter to get her toothbrush by herself. Of course, that little stunt didn’t go as planned and she slipped and hit her mouth right on the sink faucet. I inspected my child for damage and boom: chipped tooth. I was upset…but also relieved. There was no blood. Minimal tears. It could have been so much worse. At the time, I didn’t have Dr. Drew Popper, my handy Junior Smiles dentist in my life! Luckily, he’s now my go to resource in Boca Raton for pediatric dental emergencies. (And hint hint, he should be YOURS too!)

This month’s touchy topic? OMG, My Kid Broke his Tooth!

Spa Celebration at Eau Palm Beach: Perfect for Any Occasion

When my sister and I met up for coffee last month, we realized our mom had a big birthday coming up…and fast. It wasn’t just any ol’ birthday either– it was her 65th! A very special day. We knew our mom didn’t want a party and couldn’t get away for a trip (unfortunately), so we decided to officially dub June 3rd “Mormor Day” and whisk her away for a spa celebration at Eau Palm Beach Resort!

Who or what is a Mormor, you ask? Mormor is “mother’s mother” in Swedish and what my daughter calls her grandmother. The nickname has spread like wildfire throughout my family and now, no one calls her anything but that. 🙂

What YOU Need to Know About Your Toddler’s First Dental Checkup

Oh toddlers. They are loud, demanding…but oh so darn CUTE! #dailybocaavery had the most adorable little toddler smile when she was younger. But once I saw that toothy grin (a few hundred times), it dawned on me that it was time for my toddler’s first dental checkup.

So, I made that appointment, but didn’t know what the heck to do next. How do you prepare a toddler for their first dental checkup?

I called on Modern Boca Mom’s favorite pediatric dentist, Dr. Drew Popper of Junior Smiles, for the advice I never got when I needed it the most…

  1. At what age do you recommend coming in for your toddler’s first dental checkup?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends visiting the dentist at the time of the first tooth’s eruption, but no later than 12 months of age.  While there are only a few teeth in the mouth to evaluate, many dental anomalies can be identified at an early age.

In addition, this allows your child to build a relationship with their dentist. If they have any trauma or cavities in the future, this familiar relationship leads to an easier appointment.

  1. What are some ways to put your child at ease if they are nervous about visiting the dentist?

I like to explain to the children that we are just brushing their teeth, just like they do at home with their parents. At Junior Smiles, we have iPads with games on them, toys and a children’s library. This puts my patients at ease. In the back, there are televisions and kid-friendly walls. It does not feel like your typical doctor’s office.

We take a great deal of time to allow each child to warm up to us so that they have a positive experience and look forward to coming back in the future.

toddler's first dental checkup

  1. What can parents expect from their toddler’s first dental checkup?

Parent’s are always allowed to accompany their child at Junior Smiles. Once we bring the child to the back, we give them a tour of the office showing off our open bay clinic and tooth brushing station.

Then, we review everything we will be completing during their initial visit. This includes a cleaning, radiographs (depending on cooperation), oral hygiene instructions, a new patient exam and fluoride application.

toddler's first dental checkup

To prevent early childhood cavities, parents first have to find out their child’s risk of developing cavities. They also need to learn how to manage diet, hygiene and fluoride to prevent problems. However cavities aren’t all that parents need to learn about their child’s dental health.

Our age 1 dental visit lets parents discuss:
  • How to care for an infant’s or toddler’s mouth
  • Proper use of fluoride
  • Oral habits, including finger and thumb sucking
  • Ways to prevent accidents that could damage the face and teeth
  • Teething and milestones of development
  • The link between diet and oral health

Finally we will make recommendations to an orthodontist if necessary and answer any questions.

  1. What do you do to put parents at ease…who are as equally nervous as their child?

I understand that many of our parents are more nervous than the child at their first visit. To accommodate them, we explain everything very thoroughly before their initial visit to make sure parents understand how we will be proceeding. We understand that parents place a great deal of trust in us.  Therefore, my priority lies in establishing a positive, open line of communication with parents.

  1. Any other tips?

Create a sense of excitement about your child’s first dental visit!

toddler's first dental checkup

While many adults have had negative and traumatizing experiences at the dentist in the past, it is important to recognize that we do not want to pass those fears on to your child. If we are able to start off in a positive environment at your toddler’s first dental checkup, we can use many preventative measures to make sure they have a great experience going forward.

Great advice, as always, Dr. Popper!

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.

Best pediatrician in Boca

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.

Best pediatrician in Boca
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.

Best pediatrician in Boca
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.

Best pediatrician in Boca

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.

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

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.
