On Friday, March 15th our office participated in our 3rd annual "Give Kids A Smile Event". Our team all volunteered our time and services to provide free dental care to 30 children without dental insurance and who don't have the opportunity to receive regular dental care. It was a wonderful day and our team just loved every minute of it. It is a great feeling when you can reach out and help others in your community. We worked with South Elementary to help identify children in need and their wonderful principal, Mark Heagle, drove the students to and from our office all day. They all received cleanings, exams, fluoride treatments, and fillings if they needed it. It was such a joy to collaborate with other caring individuals in our community and to come together for a greater good.
The standard advice to "see your dentist twice a year" was actually invented by an ad agency for Pepsodent toothpaste! Your dental professional should recommend the correct schedule for your regular dental visits based upon your individual dental and overall health. Some individuals might be fine to come every 6 months or once per year, but some individuals need to come every three or four months to maintain optimal dental and overall health.
