School Support!

Your South Austin Dental team is proud to say that we are supporting Kiker Elementary with their annual directory. Actually Circle C Dental contributed to Bowie la crosse team and Dr. Pham visited and spoke to both Mills Elementary School and Circle C Child Development Center. One of our great staff members was in Westlake choir back in the day, so we also support Westlake High Schools. Actually, speaking of which, we are less than 10 minutes from Bee Caves Road and Mopac. For all our patients from the Westlake area, you may also have seen Dr. Pham going to church at Saint John Neumann. Yes, that is him.

OK I am sure you have seen this before, but if not, here is a link to the youtube video of the hilarious kid after sedation at a dentist's office:

In case you were wondering, at Circle C Dental we do offer sedation. Sedation varies from gas (nitrous oxide) to pills to IV sedation for wisdom teeth extraction done by Dr. David Burden. Dentistry no longer has to be scary! Our team at your South Austin dentist will take great care of you!

End of the Year coming up!

The end of the year is coming up! I love this time of the year. When Labor Day rolls around, summer is ending. Before you know it, Halloween is here. Then Thanksgiving and before you know it, Christmas -- my favorite holiday -- is here!

October, November and December are super busy times for South Austin Dental practice Circle C Dental. Many of you are blessed with dental insurance. One of the things about dental insurance though is that unlike cellular phone minutes, they don't roll over. Your benefits end at the calender year on December 31st. So all your benefits -- including the deductible that you've met -- are all gone! Same thing with Flex spend accounts (FSA) accounts. They typically end also.

As such EVERYONE wants an appointment at the end of the year. So consider calling us for an appointment and taking advantage of your remaining benefits before the end of the year before all the convenient times are taken.

One of the issues that sometimes arises is that people need a crown (aka a cap). Unfortunately their insurance won't pay for it until the crown is placed into the mouth. At Circle C Dental - your south Austin dentist - this is NOT an issue. With many other dental teams, you have to wear a temporary in your mouth for 1 month and then come back for the final crown. At Circle C Dental ( using the latest CEREC technology, we can create your final tooth colored, beautiful porcelain crown in the same visit. We offer same day treatment instead of extended mont wait now!

Some of the more popular procedures that are requested at the end of the year include teeth whitening (brightening) for end of the year Christmas and holiday pictures and braces.

I have been asked many times if we do Zoom whitening. Zoom whitening is a brand name of in office whitening. You can view one of the older posts here for more information about whitening. The laser in Zoom whitening is more of a marketing gimmick than actual effectiveness. The laser in Zoom whitening was thought to better whiten teeth due to heating the whitening solution, but what has been discovered is that the laser just makes your teeth more sensitive due to the heat. So here at your South Austin Dental Team Circle C Dental, we whitening without the laser and risk of additional and unnecessary teeth sensitivity. We can get you the equivalent of about 2 week's worth of whitening in 2 hours. Call us at 512-301-2483 or visit us at for more information.

Also people ask us braces? Why braces at the end of the year??? Honestly, I don't know why. I guess people think about what they want all year and decide at the end of the year that either they want a change or an early Christmas present for themselves. Or maybe it's a great way use remaining orthodontic and braces benefits. In any case, Circle C Dental in South Austin can move your teeth in about 6 months using the Six Month Smiles Braces technique. Please see our previous post on here for more information about braces, but instead of spending 2-3 years in all metal braces, we can often times straighten your teeth and give you a beautiful smile in a much quicker time frame!

Oh last thing is we have 1 more order of Oral B Triumph Electric toothbrushes at 65 percent off! I really believe that this is the last offer. Our Oral B rep asked us if we wanted 1 final order with the rebates and we said sure!

Please call Circle C Dental in South Austin at 512-301-2483 or visit our website at for an appointment or for any information! Dr. Tuan Pham and the rest of the South Austin Dental Team will help you out!!
