before she was an employee, she was a client. “This is a place that goes above and beyond,” says Caroline. “In my previous organization, I worked with them extensively. I was impressed with their commitment to family, community and customer service. Now that I work here, I can tell you they back up everything they say. Whether it’s a $3 job or a $3000 job, every customer is given the respect and dignity they deserve. I fell in love with Front Row Signs long before they started paying me!” For the third year in a row, Front Row Signs is proud to support many local nonprofits. “We are a small business too,” says Patti. “I would not be able to sleep at night if I didn’t feel that what we are doing here was helping this community.” Caroline adds, “I’m so blessed to work with a company that has the same values as me.” Patti and Caroline would love to meet you!

Helping You Build Your Business by Amy Sharp


ront Row Signs is your Fort Bend County go-to for custom commercial business signs and graphics. But as they say, the buck doesn’t stop there! Patti Snyder, who co-owns Front Row Signs with her husband Jim, says, “We live where we work. We see you at church and in the school carpool line. We’re your neighbors and we are here to help you build your business.” How? It starts with the Front Row 11 Step Process, that includes not only making your signs, banners, vehicle wraps, etc., but so much more. “We want to know exactly what it is you are trying to accomplish, and then figure out what solution we can provide,” says Patti. “When we understand your business, we can better serve you.

DENTAL Health: Pro Tips for Parents

Walk in With a Smile, Walk Out With a Smile D o you put the “pro” in procrastinate? Don’t feel bad—a lot of people do. And we’re especially good at putting off chores and errands we dread doing, like rounding up the kids, wrangling them into the car, and taking them to the dentist. Unless, of course, your kids’ dentist happens to be Dr. Faisal M. Khan, DDS, of Grand Parkway Pediatric Dental. Because the minute you say those exact words, as if by magic, all children stampede toward the car. How, you ask, is this possible? “We go out of our way to make sure visiting the dentist is fun,” says Dr. Khan, whose own three kids constantly remind him of what “fun” actually looks like. “As a Board-Certified Pediatric Dentist and Diplomat of Pediatric Dentistry, I’ve had three years of specialized study in child psychology. That’s why we work so hard to make your child’s experience of seeing a dentist as stress-free as possible. Happy kids make for happy patients. And it’s a lot easier to look inside a mouth that’s smiling than a mouth that’s yelling.” In the spirit of kid-worthy fun (and who knows more about fun than your kids do?) the first thing you’ll see when you walk into Grand Parkway Pediatric Dental is a floorto-ceiling undersea mural. Exam tables are never institutional or scary. Instead, they’re orange-and-white surfboards. Teeth cleanings happen beneath ceiling-mounted TV screens and dental procedures are done in the “Turtle Hut” and “Dolphin Cove.” Toys and games are everywhere and no opportunity overlooked to employ a delightful bit of kid-approved whimsy. “An incredible amount of progress has been made in pediatric dentistry,” says Dr. Khan. “Not just in terms of silent drills and painless procedures, but the psychological component of making your kids feel relaxed and happy. And that means parents are happy too.”
