Dental

A team from The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) School of Dentistry is here to provide the best oral health care for your child.

Vision

We have an optometrist on site. This makes it easy to keep up with your child’s eye exams. We also offer glasses. Be sure to check out the many styles for children of all ages. Vision care is available on Saturdays and some late evenings, too.

Pharmacy

We have an on-site pharmacy, so we can make sure the medications your child needs are ready for you without a long wait. The pharmacy and pediatric team work together to make sure you know how to give medications to your child. The pharmacy is open 7 days a week, so you can always get your refills.
