Houston, Texas (August 2014) – Dr. Alan Urbach, son of Houston pediatric dentist Dr. Mark Urbach, joined his father’s practice this year. Urbach Pediatric Dentistry is proud of this newest addition to their team, as Dr. Alan will represent the third consecutive generation of dental practitioners from the Urbach family. Dr. Mark’s father first practiced in Tyler, Texas.
Dr. Mark Urbach, who also goes by the friendly name Dr. “Mickey” Mark, became interested in becoming a dentist while spending time at his father’s practice at the age of five. After attending the University of Texas School of Dentistry in Houston, he decided to create a practice centered on making going to the dentist fun for children.
Today, he has one of the most colorful practices in Houston. An avid member of the Mickey Mouse Club, he entertains his young patients with magic tricks and balloon animals. He also lets children have fun while waiting to see the dentist by providing a “Happy Tooth Train”, video games, and Disney movies. All of this has often led children to ask their parents when they’ll go see Dr. Mark again.
Now, with Dr. Alan Urbach on the team, the practice gains another dentist who is dedicated to doing more than just help children keep their beautiful smiles. Choosing specifically to continue the family tradition and become a pediatric dentist like his father, Dr. Alan also wants to give his patients a reason to smile.

Fighting Cavity Made Fun
Dr. Mark A. Urbach and his team of professionals delight in teaching children how to be “cavity busters”. Children learn the proper way to brush, floss, and use fluorides. The importance of eating healthy snacks and applying sealants on chewing surfaces are also explained so that every child understands how vital daily oral hygiene practices are.
A child’s first dental exam should be done by age one, as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. The timeframe may be surprising to parents, but starting dental visits early is essential in preventing cavities. Many children nowadays have cavities even at the early age of two—cavities that could have been prevented with a timely visit to the dentist.
For early prevention, detection, and treatment of dental problems, we utilize modern equipment to provide a safer and highly-efficient service. Our Computerized Digital X-rays allow faster visualization while reducing the normal dental X-Ray radiation level down by 90%. Aside from our weekday and Saturday office hours, you can also call us anytime for 24 hour emergency services.
Enjoyable Dental Visits
Urbach Pediatric Dentistry gives children more reasons to smile. A visit to a pediatric dentist has never been more enjoyable with an engaging, welcoming environment for the entire family. Little brothers and sisters can even watch their older siblings’ experience and anticipate the fun they will have too.
