Women supporting women, for women

This spring, we are thrilled to partner with LOCAL Lularoe consultants for a fabulous (and stylish!) fundraiser benefiting the Third Street Alliance for Women and Children.  Third Street Alliance for Women and Children(TSA) provides a safe and healthy space for women, children and families to live learn and thrive.  Part of our practice's passion is to help better our community so there is no better cause than this.

Give back to earn smiles!! Our 3rd Annual Toy Drive!!

We are so excited to announce our 3rd Annual Toy Drive to benefit the kids at the Children's Hospital of LVHN.  This cause is close to home as it is local, and directly benefits the kids who are unable to come home for the winter holidays.

We love doing this event- not only do our patients get motivated to give back, but exposure to helping others is truly what we believe gives us the most satisfaction in life.  Join us in donating NEW, unwrapped toys and items for the holidays!

The latest run on toothbrush subscriptions: Quip!!

The latest run on toothbrush subscriptions:  Quip!!

Do you love having the convenience of health care products sent to your home?  One of the latest subscription services, Quip, the electric/manual toothbrush, gives you this optimal convenience.  It is sold as a starter kit, which includes the toothbrush and paste.  The best part is that every 3 months, new brush heads and/or toothpastes are sent to your door to remind you to switch for a better clean. With an eye catching modern appeal and social media presence, we had to put this product to the test as to whether it was worth it.  

Motivating kids to brush!

As a mother, I know how hard it is to motivate the young ones, especially when they would rather do many other things other than brush.  The key I have found is simple in concept:  MAKE IT FUN!  If it is treated like a chore, it will be.  If it is fun and exciting, it becomes something they look forward to doing!!

Here is a list of ideas that can help!

The benefits of flossing: Hoax or Reality??

The benefits of flossing: Hoax or Reality??

On to reality....Flossing is a helpful tool!

If flossing did not help our patients, we would not see the remarkable improvement in bleeding and soreness at our hygiene visits.  If flossing did not help our patients, the very same people who complained of bad breath prior would still be embarrassed.  If flossing did not help our patients, we would not see patients come back years later, with little to no decay in between their teeth.  After all, the thought of incubating food and meat in between teeth at a lovely 98.6 degrees for days and weeks can make even the strongest of stomachs queasy.

Dealing with FEAR at the dentist!

Teeth are an incredibily  important organ that we use every day.  And yet, many patients don't seek regular dental care until they have a problem or pain.  Not only is it dangerous (an infected tooth can lead to an unplanned emergency room visit and life-threatening conditions) but avoiding the dentist can be more traumatic in the long run because these teeth that have not been properly cared for.  So what keeps people away?  Throughout the years, I have found most that avoid the dentist stay away because they are embarrassed, have had a traumatic dental experience or finances.  Let's delve into some of these!
