We are a dental office dedicated to providing our patients with a lifetime of oral health. We hope this blog will leave you with the feeling that our dental office really is special and is here to help you achieve this end.
Most parents expect their children to have fluoride treatments at their cleaning appointments. It has become the standard of care for all children up to age 14. Then it stops. Why? There is a very simple reason. And it has nothing to do with the benefits fluoride gives. Insurance companies quite often stop covering fluoride treatments at age 14.
It's an exciting time calendar-wise. Wednesday (9/23) was the first day of fall, a special event which certainly doesn't happen every day. But that pales in comparison to what is going to happen on Sunday night. We are in for a double super-whopper. We are going to be able to see a "Super Moon" and the blood-red light of a total eclipse.
We have a major problem at our office. We have a table right in the middle of our staff lounge that we have to walk by a million times a day. Unfortunately, the table usually has quite a few tempting snacks on it. When we walk by the table, it takes super-human effort not to pick up a browny or a cupcake or two. Obviously, for a healthy living centered office, this is not a good thing. Now we have a simple solution (or p
There is something about Labor Day that is much like New Years. There are new beginnings. Summer is basically over. It was the time of vacations, beaches, hours by the pool, and a touch of sunburn. Now it's going to be one last big picnic, and then real life begins again.

Sitting can be dangerous! We posted on Facebook quite a while ago that there were some indications that sitting was dangerous. The post fell into the "ho hum" category, practically no one read it, and I'm sure no one acted upon it, including myself. It kind of fell into the "most things fun in life are either harmful or sinful" category, and no one wants to hear about that kind of stuff.
No, our dental office is not going to the birds. But we do have bird feeders of which the birds (and squirrels and rabbits) are very appreciative. Our patients like them too. Birds flittering around are very relaxing. Some of the patients really know their birds and tell us which ones are which. The little critters keep us busy, though.
In the weeks ahead, we are going to be raising support for The Arc of Lehigh and Northampton Counties. The Arc educates and provides services and support to more than 1500 children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families across the greater Lehigh Valley EACH YEAR. There was a time not too long ago when doctors told their parents that the best place for their child was in an institution. It was from the stubborn refusal to accept that institutionalization was the only option that The Arc was born. Our dental office is having a special to help support this great organization. Here are some items that The Arc can use:
