Cavity Patrol Pediatric Dentistry to donate funds to Cy-Hope for every new patient – Houston Chronicle

By | June 30, 2020

Pediatric dentists Julia Servetnik and Chun-Yin Wong are planning to open their own practice on Fry Road at the end of July, excited to start their own journey together. But, the pair are just as excited to use their years of schooling and training to contribute to kids in the Cy-Fair area who need a boost.

“We really reached into our backgrounds and how we were growing up in underserved households and our parents came with nothing,” Servetnik said. “People helped us, we had the reduced lunches program and various programs back in our hometowns. We said that when we have our own office, we’re going to do something like that also.”

Cavity Patrol Pediatric Dentistry, located at 7914 Fry Road, Suite 280 in Cypress, will donate to Cy-Hope, a nonprofit aiding low-income students and families in Cy-Fair ISD, for each new patient that visits the pediatric dentist office. The donation will sponsor a backpack of food through Cy-Hope’s backpack program.

The backpack program gives students backpacks full of groceries to take home discreetly, which are provided by Cy-Hope. Servetnik said she and Wong, both immigrants, grew up in low-income households and benefited from similar programs in their respective hometowns. The pair, who met during a residency program three years ago, wanted to give back to the low-income kids in their community.

“We want to give back, we want to be involved in the community and we want to do that in a way that is going to help kids like ourselves when we were growing up,” Servetnik said. “We love everything that they do and how they’re helping the community and all of the low-income kids who would be starving and not have any direction in life. They have all these sort of programs that will help them.”

Cavity Patrol will offer standard pediatric dental services as well as advanced procedures like surgical tooth extractions, pathology and will work with local doctors and speech specialists to provide a full suite of care for all types of needs, including dentistry for children with special needs.

“We are a pediatric office and it’s definitely going to be comprehensive,” Servetnik said. “We want to provide everything that a child could possibly need.”

Cavity Patrol is currently finishing its build-out, but is considering social distancing and other COVID-19 pandemic guidelines, Servetnik said, by adding space to the layout for clients and the common area.

Cavity Patrol Pediatric Dentistry is planning to open at the end of July and begin taking patients as early as August 3. An opening ceremony will be held at a later date, Servetnik said, depending on how the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect the Greater Houston area.

“We’re excited about it, truly excited,” Servetnik said. “Hopefully everything is fine and we can send them a check in the first month. We want to keep doing it as we’re going. That’s really my goal.”
