Recently we were working with a man with severe snoring problems. His snoring was so loud he and his wife had resorted to sleeping in separate bedrooms. As he realized his treatment was likely to be successful, he agreed to follow through with it under one condition. We were not to tell his wife he had stopped snoring.
Those of you who have an iPhone know they come with a little app in the form of a yellow note pad. I use it a lot. Starting years ago, I would enter the name of a book I wanted to read, or a movie I wanted to see, and I had a running list going. Or the idea of a Christmas or birthday present would come to mind and noted. There would be a website mentioned somewhere I wanted to visit, or a quote I wanted to remember.
As I sit here, it is a beautiful Saturday morning with six inches of pristine snow blanketing the ground and a clear blue sky. We often hear of the calm before the storm, but this is the calm after the storm. It is quiet. It is nice. The night's blizzard left a lot of the Northeast clobbered with a huge amount of snow. This resulted in all kinds of power outages and stalled, if not stopped, transportation systems.
Well, we are a few weeks into the new year. How is everyone doing with their New Year's resolutions? Chances are you have already begun to break some of your resolutions. It's OK, everyone does it. That's why the gyms are so crowded on January 2 and practically ghost towns on January 31.
Save you time: The time it takes for two cleanings and exams every year is a fraction of the time it takes for major dental work required because of allowing a small problem become a larger one. In this fast paced society time is valuable. Most major work (crowns, root canals, dentures, and such) require anywhere from two to four visits, each requiring an hour or more. A simple 40 minute cleaning and exam can prevent this.
