Doing Our Part to Help the Planet!

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

We are living in an age with a renewed commitment to conservation, and are frequently reminded to recycle, reduce and reuse. Last Sunday marked Earth Day, so today we thought we would discuss some of the things we do to conserve our natural resources and the environment.

Our office is digitalized, which means we can operate without the use of large amounts of paper and printing materials. The information in our office can be sent and processed digitally, which is also more efficient. We take all of the steps possible to be a ‘green’ office, making us better for the planet and more convenient for our patients.

We would love to hear how you minimize your impact on the environment. Leave us a comment below or post on our Facebook page!

What is the difference between a pediatric dentist and a family dentist?

Monday, April 16th, 2012


All dental specialists whether pediatric dentists, orthodontists, or oral surgeons, begin by completing dental school and continue their education with several years of additional, specialized training. During training in the field of pediatric dentistry, an extensive knowledge and experience in treating infants, children, adolescents, and persons with special health care needs.

Establishing a “dental home” for your child provides the opportunity to implement preventive dental health habits that keep your child free from dental and oral disease and a place to go should a dental emergency arise.

Ask us if you need the name of one of our recommended pedodontists.

April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

Visiting your dentist during your orthodontic treatment will not only help keep your teeth and mouth healthy while you have braces, but will also help keep the rest of your body healthy. The fact is, every hour of every day in the U.S., someone dies of oral cancer, which is the sixth-most common diagnosed form of the disease. The five-year survival rate is only 50 percent, and oral cancer is one of the few cancers whose survival rate has not improved. Since April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month, we would like to take this opportunity to remind all of our patients about the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene while you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment.

Your dentist is specifically trained to diagnose, treat, and prevent oral health problems. Please let us now if you have any questions about your oral health during your next adjustment appointment. Take care of your teeth!
