Happy *belated* birthday Donna! Chances are if you’ve set foot into Plunk & Dragan Smiles, you’ve gotten to know Donna or she has guided your little one through any of their firsts…first time in the office, first time getting “pictures”/X-rays of their teeth, or first time seeing a hygienist. Donna started her dental career in the office and has been by the doctors’ side since the office opened its doors. She is a fantastic teacher, listener and motivator and we are so grateful to have her as a part of the team and to have celebrated her birthday with her yesterday! Donna is a mama to two adult boys and a grandmother/“DiDi” to three adorable granddaughters. She treats every child in the office as if they were an extension of her family. HBD Donna 🎉! ❤️

A fun before and after of minimally invasive dentistry involving ICON resin infiltration. ICON is great way to blend congenital hypocalcified white spots or acquired post-orthodontic white spots (“white scars”) on teeth.

What does minimally invasive mean?
With ICON there is:
1. No numbing, no injections 🤙
2. No removal of tooth structure 🙅‍♀️👍

An etchant is used to open up subsurface porosities in the tooth structure that are reflecting light differently. A tooth-colored resin is then applied infiltrating the enamel (outer most layer of the tooth) thus filling in the porosities. The procedure is performed in office in under an hour 👏🏻 👏🏻

Looking for the perfect toothbrush for your child? No matter how cute the brush, it is important it has soft bristles to protect their enamel and delicate gum tissue.

We had lots of fun doing a little team building with a scavenger hunt around @northparkcenter today! Team building keeps our team working together smoothly and efficiently to fulfill our mission of providing fun and rewarding experiences for our patients, their families, and our staff through mentorship and education. 👏🏻 Dr. Plunk even met with George Clooney and tried to recruit him onto the team! 😆

When you get that schtickle of fluoride at the end of your dental visit and that fluoride flavor hits…😖

Q: Should my child get fluoride varnish?
A: Yes! Fluoride varnish is used to help prevent or slow down tooth decay. At your visit, we will recommend and apply the varnish after dental cleanings. It is painted on the top and sides of each tooth and hardens quickly. It is recommended that children have varnish applied 2 times per year 😃.

We’re always trying new flavors and textures BEFORE we implement them in the practice to make your kiddo’s visit as yummy and as easy peasy lemon squeezey as possible! 😁🍋 🐉 🦭👍🏻

Hello!!! We thought this would be a good time to re-introduce ourselves!

“I opened the practice in the summer of 1978 after graduating from pediatric residency. I grew up in the community of Little Forest Hills and graduated from Bryan Adams High School. It has been my conviction from day one to build a patient-centered practice built on trust, relationships, and the highest quality of care.” -Dr. Plunk

Dr. P has been a dual-trained, board-certified pediatric dentist and orthodontist serving the communities of East Dallas since opening the doors of his solo practice in 1978. Dr. Plunk enjoys cycling, juggling, playing the kazoo and providing great experiences for kids and their parents!

Dr. Sabrina Dragan grew up in both Los Angeles, California and Las Vegas, Nevada. She has wanted to be a dentist since she was a little girl—her family remembers her proclaiming this when she was five! Dr. Dragan met Dr. Plunk when she was completing her pediatric residency program at Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas in 2015. Upon completing her residency program, she and her husband moved to Denver, Colorado for a few years and Dr. Dragan settled into private practice with Dr. Plunk’s longtime friend and colleague. After learning to successfully ski black diamonds, Dr. Dragan and her husband returned to East Dallas missing the warm weather, friends, and most importantly…BBQ! She joined Dr. Plunk in early 2020, and Plunk & Dragan Smiles was born!

Dr. Dragan is our resident balloon-animal artist and is always crafting up creations for her patients around the office. “I’ve had many phenomenal mentors within my lifetime, including Dr. Plunk. I am flattered to have the same influence to make children feel empowered to value their health and take care of their smiles.” – Dr. Dragan

A big shout out to this rockstar patient who was all smiles for his first visit! 🤩

🦷 When should I first take my little one to a pediatric dentist? 🦷

Bringing an infant to the dentist may seem strange, since infant children typically don’t have most of their teeth. But did you know that the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that infants see the dentist by the time they turn 1, or 6 months after the eruption of their first tooth?

At Plunk & Dragan Smiles, Dr. Dragan can provide gentle care for young kids. With a “lap exam,” you’ll hold your infant child on your lap as Dr. Dragan examines their teeth and gums and assesses their oral health.

After your child’s consultation, you can discuss your child’s oral health with Dr. Dragan, ask any questions you may have about their oral development, and get all the information you need to care for their smile as they grow. ⭐️
