April 2018: Tips, ENews & More!


After putting up with the long, cold winter, it's April and Spring is officially here. With our cold and icy first half of April you wouldn't know it but warmer days are approaching. Are you excited to enjoy more outdoor activities, or to simply hang out on the patio with your family and friends? All the more reason for you to smile! So why not let us take care of your smile and oral health by scheduling an appointment with us.

The month of April is Oral Health Month and also a great time to get to know your hygienist. April 7th to 13th was National Dental Hygienists Week! It celebrates the hard work of key members of our oral health team, and their role in maintaining good oral health of our patients. Learn more about our team here!

Keep smiling,

Effects of Oral Piercings on Your Oral Health

Many teenagers look for ways to express themselves uniquely, and some choose body art as their outlet. Although tongue, cheek, and lip rings can look cool, oral jewelry can cause major negative effects on your oral health during the procedure and afterwards.
