Starting from Scratch: McKinney Pediatric Dentistry After One Year

We are humbled that many have chosen McKinney Pediatric Dentistry to care for their kids and we do not take this lightly!   We love all the kids that come our way and hope that each family can feel that.

Dr. Jon Schaack is the sole owner and only dentist at McKinney Pediatric Dentistry.  Being a privately owned practice, we take pride in building a reputation for providing personalized care and attention tailored for each child, including children with special needs.  We hope to continue to build a reputation as a place where kids can have fun in a safe and trusted setting and receive quality care from a board certified pediatric dentist and a trained, experienced, and competent staff.

But there is a lot of “building” that preceded the building up of a reputation.  McKinney Pediatric Dentistry is a new office in McKinney which started from scratch.  The office was previously nothing more than a concrete foundation and empty space.

Designs were made and revised.   Ideas and plans were created first on paper and then became realized.  Contractors were organized and construction took place.  Interior furnishings were planned and completed.  Equipment, computers, TVs, phone systems, and other media were installed.  Staff were hired and trained (what an awesome team, by the way!!) and systems were put in place.  What an exciting journey it was to go from early stages of ideas all the way to opening doors to patients!

On May 31, 2011 we began welcoming in our first patients!  Since that time our philosophy of putting patients and families first has been felt by many.  We will always put you and your child’s best interest first.  Our greatest efforts are always centered around each child’s experience in our office.  It is fun to meet new families each week as new patients continue coming into the practice.

It has been a fantastic journey up through the end of our first year and we look forward to many more years!!!



P.S.   Check out our Facebook photo album (“Construction progress Photos” and “online casinos365036913558056.84256.158001137594969&type=3http://”>Office Tour“) to see   how this journey unfolded with before, during, and after pictures of the office!!

What Toothpaste Should I Use? What About Fluoride?









Many parents start off using the clear training toothpaste that has no fluoride.  However, the AAPD actually states that the best practice for children includes “twice-daily use of a fluoridated toothpaste.”

To avoid risk of swallowing too much fluoride, the AAPD specifies how much toothpaste to use when brushing.  “A ‘smear’ of fluoridated toothpaste for children less than 2 years of age” and “a ‘pea-sized’ amount of toothpaste is appropriate for children aged 2 through 5 years.”  Once they are 5 years old, most children are better able to spit and the amount is less critical.

Parents should dispense the toothpaste and perform or assist with tooth-brushing of young children.  To maximize the beneficial effect of fluoride in the toothpaste, rinsing after brushing should be kept to a minimum or eliminated altogether.

At McKinney Pediatric Dentistry, casinos Jon Schaack takes time to answer these types of questions as well as provide proper brushing and fluoride recommendations based on each child”s need.

When Should I Start Brushing My Child’s Teeth?

You should begin brushing your child’s teeth as soon as they come in!  Always use a soft-bristled toothbrush and be sure to brush well around the gum-lines.  While it is common for very young children to cry or not want to brush, it is best to stay consistent with twice daily brushing.  Eventually they will learn that this is important and something that will be done regularly.

Make it as fun as you can!  Sing the ABCs, or their favorite song.  If you find yourself having to brush the teeth of your crying teenager, you may want to sneak a peak at their iPod playlist to find a song they will like!  And remember this about brushing teeth:  You only have to brush the ones you want to keep!

When you bring your child into McKinney Pediatric Dentistry for a dental visit, Dr. Jon Schaack will spend time showing you the best ways to brush your child”s teeth.  It is good to angle the bristles at an angle against the gum line and move the brush in a circular pattern.  Brush each area for a good 10 seconds or more before moving on to another area of the mouth.  This will help the gums to remain in good health and assure improved plaque removal.  If you notice that  the gums bleed a bit during brushing, it usually means that more time should be spent in these areas.roulette

Don”t give up if your child cries when brushing.  This only means that you can relate to every other parent out there who experiences the same thing.  Children normally go through phases of resistance to brushing and staying positive and consistent is important!

When Should I Start Taking My Child to the Dentist?

Does your child have teeth?  Then bring them in!  There are many preventive steps that should be taken to assure your child’s optimal oral health.  Dr. Jon Schaack would love for you to be educated on these points.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that a child’s first visit to a pediatric dentist and the establishment of a “dental home” be no later than 12 months of age!  (See the AAPD official policy here.)

The AAPD defines a dental home as “the ongoing relationship between the dentist and the patient” which provides comprehensive oral health care.  Here your child will receive preventive care, restorative treatment, evaluation of growth and development, coordination with other specialty care (orthodontics, etc) and also emergency treatment when needed.

Choosing McKinney Pediatric Dentistry as your child’s dental home will help assure his/her optimal oral health and we know there is plenty of fun to be had along the way!

Christmas party 2011 with McKinney Pediatric Dentistry

There”s always a first for everything!  On Friday, Dec. 23 McKinney Pediatric Dentistry held its first work Christmas party; the first of hopefully many to come.  To celebrate the good times shared in this inaugural year, our staff attended a play for our Christmas party.  Afterwards we went out to dinner where a tribute was given to each staff member in recognition of the unique talents and fun memories that each person has provided to McKinney Pediatric Dentistry.

We thoroughly enjoyed the 7 months which the office has been open for seeing patients.  It”s been full of fun and great memories!  We enjoy our patients and the fun they bring.  We love getting to know the parents of these wonderful children.  We give our best to loving and taking care of the families in and around McKinney.  We appreciate all of you who come to our pediatric dental office!  We definitely appreciate the many of you who have posted Google Reviews and Facebook recommendations to help us get the word out.  We assure you that we will always give our best to your kids!

One reason we enjoyed this year so much is because we enjoy working together as a pediatric dental team.  At McKinney Pediatric Dentistry, we have the best team of employees who work hard, who love the patients, and who are constantly caring and putting kids at ease during dental appointments.  We are so fortunate to have such a happy and cohesive work environment where we can assure that children and parents feel something refreshing in their visit to the pediatric dentist.  Enjoying the people you work with can sure make work fun, and not really “work” at all.  Kaitlyn and Angie have been great team members with because they do their job with the highest quality and know how to have lots of fun as they go about each day!

McKinney Pediatric Dentistry Hosts Open House for Medical and Dental Professionals

Families of McKinney and the surrounding area are interested to learn when there are new businesses local to them.  McKinney Pediatric Dentistry is a new and growing dental office just for kids and is conveniently located in the heart of McKinney, TX.  You can go to Google to see the many 5-star reviews that parents have been giving in just the first 6 months since opening.   McKinney Pediatric Dentistry is excited that parents are making all the community aware that there is a fantastic new place where your kids can relax, have fun, and be comfortable while they receive optimal dental care.

While parents have been spreading the word around the community, McKinney Pediatric Dentistry is working hard to ensure that other doctors and dental professionals in the community also know to where they can refer families.  An open house for such doctors and dental professionals was held at McKinney Pediatric Dentistry in which doctors and their staff members could walk through the office and visit with our wonderful staff.  We were delighted to have about 150 visitors that night!  El Fenix catered some delicious fajitas for all who came.  (Surprisingly, despite the large turnout, there was still an abundance of food in the end!  This kept Dr. Schaack and his staff happy for about a week of fajita leftovers!)

The open house was a great opportunity to inform others of the experience that kids and families receive when they are welcomed to our practice.  As other doctors or dentists find parents looking for a pediatric dentist, we welcome all who they may invite to visit us.  Parents who want their child to receive personal attention from a specialist in kids dentistry will find that McKinney Pediatric Dentistry is the fun, safe, and positive environment they are seeking.  We really do have fun every day at work thanks to our awesome team and thanks to all the fun and energetic kids that we get to “play” with every day.

Check out our photo album on Facebook to see pictures from the Open House!!

Congratulations to our Halloween promotion winner, Cole Drysdale!!!


Throughout October, patients at McKinney Pediatric Dentistry participated in our Candy Corn Count Contest!!  All month, kids placed their guesses of how many candy corns were in the jar.  Cole Drysdale received the call on Halloween and was notified that he won the $50!! We had lots of great guesses, including Dr. Schaack’s mysterious exact count which was disqualified for suspicion. 🙂

Watch for future promotions and chances to win prizes and cash from McKinney Pediatric Dentistry.  We like to reward our patients for the trust they give to us in providing their dental care!  We also like to thank those parents who refer their friends and neighbors to us!  Your referral to family members and friends is the best compliment we can receive.  There is a new pediatric dental office here in McKinney, Texas where your kids will receive personal attention and quality dental care while having a fun experience!

Congratulations, Cole!!  Don’t spend it all in once place!  😉
