Why did you become a optometrist?
When I was in third grade I received my first pair of glasses. I was amazed at how clear the grains of wood in the office were and how distinct each leaf on the tree outside was. From that moment on I wanted to give others the same experience. Third grader Diana decided she wanted to be either a superstar singer, a teacher, or an optometrist. I quickly found out that I am not a great singer, however I love teaching others about the eyes and optometry gives me that opportunity. I actually ended up working as an optometric technician at the same office where I put on my first pair of glasses. I am excited to watch my patients grow every year like my eye doctor did with me!
Interesting Facts

I was raised in Wichita, so I am extremely happy to be back serving my community! I spend the majority of my time with my large family and all of our pets. My family is filled with crazy cat ladies, including myself. My cat's name is Raspberry. He likes to go on walks and dresses up in different outfits on his Instagram profile. I also enjoy going out to eat at restaurants. I am a huge foodie and am always thinking about what I want to try next.

Why did you become a optometrist?
My father is the closest person I know with Amerlia, or easier known has having only one arm. I would hear stories from family about how he grew up not only with a physical handicap, but in a culture with a stigmatic handicap as being an outcast, or "cursed" because of his deformity. He had to overcome so much, and never used any of it an an excuse to accomplish and provide my family and I with more than I ever needed. Obstacles and barriers are an unfortunate reality for so many. Through him, I knew early on that I wanted to help others in some way, but only found later on that a great fit for me was vision, as I had first hand experienced how much glasses changed my life. The combination of the two would lead to a professional career in Optometry where I am grateful each day being able to be a part of such meaningful treatment, and be one part of many that helps kids grow to their fullest potential.

Why did you become a dentist?
I decided to become a dentist because of my cousin. When I first graduated from high school, I didn't know what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. A few careers crossed my mind, but it did not feel right. My cousin told me to go work with her and meet the dentist she worked for. After shadowing and some soul searching, I decided to pursue a career in dentistry so that I could help others and care for my community.
Interesting Facts

When I was younger, I was a loner and shy. I had a lot of dental work due to lack of brushing and lots of sweets from my dad. I grew up feeling that I was not good enough. However, one middle school teacher changed that for me. She told me that she was proud of me and that I should not feel so bad as long as I kept trying my best. From then on my faith grew and I stopped beating my self down. I worked hard in everything I did and even in subjects that I was poor in. My determination to not give up and my habits of working hard has led me to where I am today.

Dentist Services

Providing high-quality, affordable dental care for kids in Wichita is what we do best! A child’s first dentist visit should occur after their first tooth emerges or by their first birthday, whichever comes first. Getting an early start on oral care habits puts your child on the healthiest path and it starts with your new kid's dentist Wichita!

Dental Cleanings

Sometimes brushing just isn’t enough, and kids need professional cleanings! During dental cleanings, we use special tools and skills to remove plaque from hard-to-reach spots. We also check for early signs of tooth decay so that we can treat any issues that arise before they become a more serious problem. For children who are more susceptible to tooth decay, fluoride treatments and sealants are necessary to protect and maintain the strength of their teeth.

Dental X-Rays

Dental x-rays are tools that allow dentists to monitor oral development and check for any potential diseases or decay that can impact your child’s dental health. Dental x-rays are special because they reveal areas of the teeth that are invisible during dental cleanings.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride gives your teeth the nutrients they need to stay healthy! Fluoride is a natural mineral that protects teeth from decay and maintains tooth strength. During regular dental visits, we paint a concentrated fluoride varnish directly onto tooth/teeth surfaces that need protection. Fluoride is beneficial throughout a child’s life, and it is an important part of healthy dental hygiene.

Cavities & Fillings

The most basic form of tooth decay is cavities, especially for toddlers and children. A cavity develops plaque builds up and eats at the tooth enamel. This creates a hole in the tooth called a cavity. Sometimes cavities are hard to prevent, but proper dental hygiene, a healthy diet, and biannual dental cleanings are the best defense. When a cavity is found, the dentist removes the decay and fills in the hole with a filling.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants protect teeth against harmful bacteria and tooth decay. Even with excellent oral hygiene, the grooves on the surfaces of molars are vulnerable to collections of food and bacteria that can potentially lead to decay. Dental sealants give teeth an extra layer of protection, and they are an important part of preventative oral care.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are placed on top of damaged teeth that need to be restored to their correct size and shape. Sometimes a filling is not enough to restore a tooth that is decayed or compromised. In this circumstance, dental crowns are needed. A dental crown is applied in one appointment using some form of anesthetic.

Tooth Extraction

There are times when a tooth needs to be extracted. These cases include when a tooth is extensively damaged or decayed, when a baby tooth needs help coming out, and when additional room is needed in the mouth in preparation for orthodontic treatment.

Dental Sedation Options

In every dental procedure and at every visit, we want to minimize potential distress to keep kids calm and comfortable. Dental sedation makes your kid’s dental procedure as easy as possible for them. Select locations provide dental sedation options, and a referral is required.

Chipped Tooth Care

Teeth can accidentally chip or break during play. Thankfully, we have ways to fix chips and breaks! Contact your dentist immediately if your child has a broken tooth. During the emergency visit, the dentist will examine the child’s mouth. Sometimes, the tooth fragment can be reattached. If you are able to locate the chipped tooth fragment, put it in a bag with water or saline and bring it to the dentist's office. If the tooth fragment can’t be found, there are additional ways to repair the tooth.

Insurance

Good news families! Medicaid and most dental insurance plans cover two dental cleanings and checkups per year. Regular dental checkups are important for maintaining oral health. Book an appointment with us for your child today. We look forward to being your kid's new dentist Wichita!

Vision Services

Kid’s eye doctors can make your child’s future clear!

Regular eye exams are crucial for preparing babies, kids, and teens for educational, social, and developmental success. Vision issues can cause kids to struggle with school, sports, their peers, and daily activities. A vision check-up is a great way to make sure your child is healthy and prepared for success.

Nearsightedness

If your child has a hard time focusing on things in the distance, they may have Myopia. Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a refractive disorder that makes it difficult to see objects far away, while things up close are crystal clear. The symptoms can include:


  • Blurred vision when looking at objects at a distance

  • Squinting

  • Eyestrain

  • Eye fatigue when looking at objects far away


Nearsightedness can impact a child’s safety, education, and socialization. Thankfully eyeglasses, contact lenses, or eye surgery can correct nearsightedness. Take your child to routine eye exams to detect potential issues and help them stay healthy.

Farsightedness

If things are too close for comfort, your child may have Hyperopia. Hyperopia, or farsightedness, is a common condition that makes objects close up difficult to see, while objects far away are clearly focused. With farsightedness, the light rays in the eyes focus behind the surface of the retina instead of directly on the retina, which makes close-up objects blurry. The symptoms may include:


  • Blurred vision

  • Trouble focusing on things close by

  • Eyestrain

  • Eye fatigue

  • Headaches when performing tasks close-up


Farsightedness can impact a child’s self-esteem and educational abilities. Thankfully it is easy to correct with eyeglasses, contact lenses, or surgery. Book an appointment for a vision exam to make sure your child is prepared for success!

Astigmatism

Astigmatism is a common condition that makes objects blurry, regardless of distance. With astigmatism, the eye isn’t able to focus because it is not completely round. Kids with astigmatism often perceive the blurriness as normal, which makes it difficult to diagnose. The symptoms can include:


  • Blurred Vision

  • Distorted Vision

  • Eyestrain

  • Headaches


Like other common eye issues, astigmatism can impact safety, socialization, and school performance. Thankfully astigmatism can be treated with eyeglasses, contact lenses, or surgery. Make an appointment for an eye exam to make sure your child is prepared for success!

Lazy Eye

A lazy eye is called Amblyopia. In amblyopia, one eye does not properly reflect light which causes it to underperform. When a child has a lazy eye, their body follows the direction of the normally performing eye which can impact depth perception. Symptoms can include:


  • Issues with depth perception

  • Frequently squinting or shutting one eye

  • Tilting head to focus


For the most effective and simple treatment, early detection is key. To set your child up for success, schedule a routine eye exam today!

Cross Eyes

Cross eyes, or strabismus, is a relatively common eye condition in which the eyes are sometimes misaligned. With strabismus, the eye's muscles are out of sync which causes the eyes to look in different directions. If left unaddressed, strabismus can result in a lazy eye or cause other types of vision problems. Thankfully there are a few different treatment options. If you are concerned your child has cross-eyes, book an appointment for an eye exam.

Fashionable Frames

Many parents struggle to get their children to wear eyeglasses. Thankfully we carry over 350 Medicaid-approved frames to ensure your child can find the perfect pair to suit their age, size, fashion, and lifestyle. We want every child to feel cool, confident, and comfortable when wearing eyeglasses!

Insurance Options

We don’t want any child to struggle with learning challenges due to undetected vision problems. If your child is experiencing vision issues, we can help. We accept Medicaid and most insurance plans so that your child can have regular vision check-ups and glasses at little or no cost to parents.
