October 31, 2017: Halloween is best known by kids as a day to collect (and consume!) as much candy as physically possible while dressing up in a costume! You know the song, “I want candy!” ? Here are some ways you might not have thought of to keep the day a little healthier and safer for your teeth!

✓Fill the kids up with a big healthy meal prior to trick-or-treating so that the candy doesn’t become their meal.
✓ Prior to collecting, set a limit on the amount of candy they can eat at the end of the night.
✓Err on the side of caution and check for tampered with candy prior to letting the kiddos eat it.
✓Find fun ways to “earn” the candy throughout the week based on healthy eating.
✓Limit the amount of time that sugar is in contact with your child’s teeth. Remember to brush, floss and rinse as soon as you finish eating the candy.
✓Use fluoride to help prevent cavities.
✓Schedule your dental cleaning. Frequent cleanings at the dental office with dental equipment is needed to remove calculus (tartar) and plaque build-up.

Have a “spook-tacular” time!

August 24, 2017: Life is busy, isn’t it? When was the last time you were able to sit back for 45 minutes and relax while checking something off your task list? There’s always somewhere to go, something to do, or something to achieve. All the scientific proof that relaxation is good for you doesn’t stop the fact that your “to-do” list needs to be…… and life happens.

That’s where we come in. You have to get your teeth cleaned. We know that. Tarter builds up and leaves your teeth looking lifeless and under the attack of the almighty cavity. ? Ew.

Since you’re here anyway, why not take the pause in life you need and deserve while crossing something off your bucket list — ✅ a dental cleaning.

We snapped a picture of Shannon preparing a relaxing paraffin hand wax for a patient prior to their dental appointment. This warm, thermo-therapeutic hand treatment is both relaxing and moisturizing. Infused with essential oils, this complimentary treatment will make you feel like you’re at the spa, not the dentist. ?

Our goal is to treat you the best. We know you’re busy and care about your teeth and we care about YOU!

Let us spoil you at your next visit — say “yes” to the paraffin hand mask! Available to both check-up and cleaning appointments as well as patients here for cosmetic or restorative purposes. New patients always welcome here at our family owned, private practice. ☎ 413-549-6270.
