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. 🙂

To make “Mormor Day” extra special, I booked a stretch limousine with my friends at Black Pearl Limousine. #dailybocaavery even got to ride with us to pick up my mom. She had a blast!

Our driver was fantastic and rolled out the red carpet (literally) for our party. We brought a couple bottles of champagne and got our party started as we headed up to Manalapan!

So pretty and festive!

If you haven’t been to the Eau Palm Beach before, it’s simply amazing. It’s a luxurious experience just walking into the lobby!

You can’t visit the resort without indulging in their amazing ocean views. So, we kicked off our spa celebration at Eau Palm Beach at their oceanfront restaurant: Breeze Ocean Kitchen.

It was a little rainy when we got there, but by the time we ordered cocktails and appetizers, the sun decided to come out and play!

The food was wonderful- it’s such a fun place to dine on property…and right by the pool AND ocean!

Spa Celebration at Eau Palm Beach Resort

After lunch, we had big spa day plans booked. Did you know that the Eau Spa Fairies have been picking their favorite treatments to share this summer at incredible summer pricing? Eau Spa Summer Specials will be offered through September 30, 2017, and are available Sunday through Thursday every week.

My mom and I booked a Self-Centered Massage (eau-mazing!) and my sister got an Essence Facial (which I tried last year). We also set Mormor up with a fabulous pedicure experience. We aimed to spoil her!

You just can’t beat a spa celebration at Eau Palm Beach. The spa lounge and bath facilities alone are top notch and so relaxing. I wanted to stay all day.

Thank you so much to the Eau Palm Beach  Resort & Spa and Black Pearl Limousine for hosting us and making “Mormor Day” the best celebration ever! Happy Birthday Mom!

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.

toddler's first dental checkup

  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 Raton pediatric dentist
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.

14 Reasons Why Boca Moms Really LOVE this Pediatrician

If you’re a new, semi-new, or even a veteran Boca Raton mom, there’s one essential thing you need…a membership to Boca VIPediatrics! This Boca pediatrician phenomenon taking local parents by storm launched in 2014 as a new wave in personalized, pediatric care.

But don’t just take my word for it! Check out why Boca moms are loving on this new pediatric experience that makes life oh-so-much easier.

This Boca Pediatrician is LOVED: 14 Reasons WHY!

  1. It’s Like a Real-Life 24/7 “Doctor-In-Your-Pocket”

The mind-blowing fact is you essentially have “your pediatrician in your pocket.” If you have a question or concern, you don’t have to Google or go down the WebMD rabbit hole thinking your child has some rare form of the flu. Instead, you simply send an email or text directly to your Boca pediatrician, anytime day or night, and you get an answer back in minutes!

  1. You Don’t Have to Wait…EVER

Believe it or not, when you walk into Boca VIPediatrics, the staff is waiting for YOU and you head straight back to see the doctor. You will save HOURS (maybe even days?) by not waiting on your Boca pediatrician.

  1. You Get that Old-Fashioned Relationship with Your Doctor…

Because of their very small practice size, you get more time with your Boca pediatrician. Dr. Rudnick and their newest pediatrician, Dr. Gilbert, take the time to get to know your whole family. They know your child’s health history like the back of their hand. This helps parents to rest easy that should they need anything, they can always reach the doctor who knows their child best!

4. You Can Send a Quick Text or Email, and Get a Response Back in Minutes

Boca pediatrician VIPediatrics

When you have the ability to send a text or email right to your Boca pediatrician, you can oftentimes save yourself and your child from a trip to the office. Whether your little guy or gal wakes up with pink eye or goes to bed with a brutal cough, you’ll get a treatment plan immediately texted or emailed back to you from the doctor. That means no more having to take a half day waiting for, or wondering if you’ll even get an appointment at another office.

5. They’re Bringing House Calls Back!

Boca pediatrician VIPediatrics

One of the best parts of Boca VIPediatrics is that they perform house calls. For your first newborn visit after you leave the hospital with baby and for urgent after-hours care, they will make arrangements to come to your house. Wow.

6. You Will Be the Envy of All Your Mommy Friends

Imagine sitting with a group of friends at a park playdate when you notice a bug bite on your child’s arm. “OMG! Should you put something on it?”, your mommy friend asks. “No worries. I’ll just text a photo to my pediatrician and ask,” you reply.

Within minutes, you have an answer, the medication dosage, and have officially become the coolest mom on the playground. BAM!

  1. You Have a Quarterback for your Child’s Healthcare

Say your child needs a blood test, an x-ray, an MRI, or needs to see a specialist? When you are a VIP, the Boca VIPediatrics staff sets everything up for you. Whether it’s a same-day visit to see a specialist, an advocate to follow up on test results, or even top priority for lab/imaging, they have your back! Your Boca pediatrician will quarterback all care to make sure your little one is always getting the VIP treatment.

  1. There Are No Sick Kids in the Waiting Room

Boca pediatrician VIPediatrics

Because there are no wait times and office visits are private, you won’t see a waiting room full of sick kids when you arrive. You will never have to worry about your child getting sick from a visit TO the doctor.

9. The Absolute Coolest Telemedicine Products

VIPs have access to the latest & greatest health/tech gadgets. Boca VIPediatrics has even been featured on some of South Florida’s top news networks for utilizing a digital otoscope and stethoscope that clips onto your iPhone to send video/audio to the doctor securely for review.

10. Their Customer Service is Awesome

How much do you LOVE companies with great customer service? Boca VIPediatrics is family owned and operated and has Disney-level hospitality training. You’ll be greeted at each visit with a bottle of water or cup of coffee. They’ll even escort you down to your car to help with your stroller or carseat.

Because of the small practice size, every member of the staff will know you and your family by name. But, the experience is really about your kids. Let’s just say a bubble machine goes a long way with the little ones! And, older kids love experimenting with virtual reality while getting vaccines. These things help make the doctor’s office experience less scary and more fun!

11. They’ve Just Opened their Nearly Year-Long Wait List

After nearly a year of having a wait list in almost all age categories, Boca VIPediatrics opened up a few more spots, so South Florida parents can bring their child’s healthcare to another level. {Although I’m told spots are very limited!!!}

Boca pediatrician VIPediatrics

12. Very, Very, Very Personalized Care

Perhaps one of my favorite reasons why Boca moms LOVE VIPediatrics is their belief that there is no such thing as “one size fits all” healthcare. Every child and family is different and care this personalized actually keeps your children healthier with wellness plans and preventative care. They believe that a “parent’s intuition” plays a big role and take the time to listen and provide an individualized approach.

13. It’s More Affordable Than You Think

Just when you think everything sounds too good to be true and this type of care is going to break the bank, I’m here to tell you…it won’t. With monthly payment plans and insurance reimbursement, you’re going to pay more for your cable bill or daily latte than a membership to Boca VIPediatrics. The words “worth every penny” and “priceless” often come up in online reviews…impressive!

14. The Best Pediatricians (and the Sun-Sentinel “Best of” Award to Prove It!)

Boca pediatrician VIPediatrics

The backbone of Boca VIPediatrics is Dr. Chad Rudnick, who certainly has won the hearts of kids and parents alike in Boca and beyond. With a slew of 5 star reviews on Facebook, and a bedside manner that’s set the town abuzz, Dr. Rudnick has become Boca’s own “Patch Adams!” Joining the team is new Boca pediatrician Paul Gilbert, MD, who comes from Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital.

With second-to-none training at the top hospital in the U.S. and years of experience as a physician at a premier sleep-away camp in the Berkshires, Dr. Gilbert brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Boca VIPediatrics family.

Welcome Dr. Gilbert! I’m sure Boca will be happy to share the LOVE!

The Wait Is Over…How to Snag a Spot at Boca VIPediatrics

Since 2014, Boca VIPediatrics has been providing Boca parents and their children something no other pediatric smart office currently offers…many somethings, in fact.

Whether it’s a house call for urgent after-hours care, texting/calling/emailing your pediatrician directly on their smartphone 24/7, no wait times at the office, or a virtual visit via video call. These services help parents save valuable time, allowing them them to avoid having to go to the doctor’s office for every little thing.

I noticed Boca VIPediatrics developing a cult-like following with savvy new parents in Boca Raton (and our surrounding cities) who valued personalized care, convenience, time, and an “old-fashioned relationship” with their pediatrician.

Boca VIPediatrics operates on a membership model with an extremely limited number of patients. In order to be on call 24/7 and provide all of the amenities I listed above, they have to cap their practice. This helps avoid the (sadly) all-too-familiar assembly line approach to pediatric care.

Essentially, they take on a very small number of children in each age category to make sure they are providing the best possible care to their VIPs (Very Important Patients!). Within 6 months of opening their office in central Boca Raton, several age groups quickly hit their cap.

”While I wish we could take care of everyone, it’s important that our practice maintains a small, personalized feel so I can truly make myself available to all my patients 24/7 and guarantee no wait times,” explained Chad Rudnick, M.D., founder of Boca VIPediatrics.

With Boca Raton now becoming a booming city for babies and families, word started circulating that this “pediatric smart office” was changing the game for pediatric care. There wasn’t a preschool, mommy & me class, or breastfeeding support group that wasn’t buzzing about Dr. Rudnick, the “house call doc that you can actually text!”

So, they opened a waiting list and started a nationwide search for a visionary pediatrician to join forces with Dr. Rudnick {more on that later}. Now…

Modern Boca Mom has the exclusive word that the wait is over!
Boca VIPediatrics is opening their waiting list and will be taking on new VIPs in ALL age categories…but not for long!

Due to the high demand and limited number of spots available, you’ll want to follow this blog carefully over the next few months if you’re looking to snag a spot for your Boca kid.

Especially since Dr. Rudnick was recently named “Best of Boca – Best Pediatrician 2016” by the Sun-Sentinel…

Here’s how it works, step by step:

Step 1: Call Boca VIPediatrics (561-923-9635) or fill out their online contact form here: www.bocavipediatrics.com/contact. You’ll speak with a friendly member of the family owned & operated pediatric smart office, and they’ll give you all the details, membership highlights and amenities for joining as a VIP family.

Step 2: Schedule a “Backstage Tour.” This is when you’ll tour the pediatric smart office, meet the staff, and sit down for a ‘one-on-one’ with the Pediatrician to go over your child’s health history and learn more about the practice.

Step 3: Sign up for an annual membership and breathe a sigh of relief that your child’s healthcare is now on a whole other level.

The process of joining Boca VIPediatrics is similar to joining a health club. You’ll pay a monthly membership fee (equivalent to a Starbucks latte each day) for 24/7 access to the doctor’s cell, no wait times, house calls and private, un-rushed office visits (FYI- there are also no co-pays at the office, everything is included in your membership). They work with your insurance a little differently. Instead of billing your insurance company for visits to the office, they let you collect the reimbursement directly, which helps to offset the annual membership cost. Your child’s insurance is still used for all prescriptions, labs, imaging, and referrals to specialists.

You essentially have “your pediatrician in your pocket!”

And remember, you don’t have to visit their pediatric smart office for EVERY. LITTLE. THING.

  • If your little one has a rash, you can text a photo.
  • Suspect an ear infection late at night? You can send a video using Boca VIPediatrics’ Oto Home iPhone attachment, which clips onto a parent’s iPhone to send secure video of the inner ear directly to Dr. Rudnick for his review.

  • Hear a cough that doesn’t sound right? Either send a video or use the virtual stethoscope they offer VIPs that clips to your phone and sends secure heart/lung sounds right to the doctor.

Grab your spot while you can — you don’t want your children to be waitlisted for this type of quality, concierge care!

Spots are extremely limited and will fill up soon at Boca Raton’s pediatric smart office. For more information on how it all works, visit www.BocaVIPediatrics.com or call 561-923-9635.
