In celebration of Dr. Kari Blankenship’s arrival at Greenspoint Dental, we’ll be giving away backpacks filled with school supplies to school-aged patients until the end of August.
Dr. Blankenship is a recent graduate of the University of Texas Health Sciences Center in San Antonio. Though she graduated with a doctorate in Dental Surgery, Dr. Blankenship loves children and is focusing primarily on pediatric dentistry here at Greenspoint.
The backpacks will come with notebooks, paper, pens, pencils, markers and a ruler—necessities of any school supply list. One backpack will be given away every week until the end of August. We’ll be deciding the winners in a drawing composed of the previous week’s school-aged patients.
According to Dr. Blankenship, the backpack contests are coming at a perfect time for young patients. Parents that are bringing kids in for check-ups now are helping to prevent infections that would cause their kids to miss school later in the year.
“It’s an overall well-being issue to get kids ready to start the new school year,” said Dr. Blankenship. “If they are taught from an early age that brushing and flossing are good then they grow up with that habit.”
If you’ve got a youngster who could use a checkup before school gets back in session, make an appointment at Greenspoint Dental today. After the appointment, we’ll enter your child’s name in the drawing and select the winner the following Monday. If you’ve won, we’ll give you a call and you can come pick up the backpack at your convenience.
