As we bid farewell to 2012 and greet the new year of 2013, may we all have success, peace and happiness in the coming year. Now is a good time to make commitments and set goals. One of the most important things you can do for yourself is to take better care of our own health, including the health of your mouth. We are here to help you with that goal. We’d be happy to help you create a healthy, beautiful smile in 2013. Did you realize that the health of your teeth and gums affects your overall health? Your teeth are meant to last your entire lifetime. It is always better to take preventative action rather than treat disease. Tooth decay is actually a ‘disease’ and it is also a very preventable disease!! It is important to catch oral health problems early and treat the problems rather than just ‘patching up’ symptoms as they arise. With regular check-ups and hygiene appointments, you can prevent many problems and catch small problems before they become big problems. We would love to help you restore and enhance your smile. See you soon. Happy New Year!!
