August 2022: Tips, eNews & More!

Happy August! Summer is at its best but it doesn't last forever. We want to know about all the fun you're having outdoors! August is also the last month of many of our kids' summer vacations, so make sure to book a cleaning appointment and give them a great start to their school year.

Did you know that August 22 is Tooth Fairy Day? Some say the Tooth Fairy collects teeth to give them to babies without teeth, so don't forget to put your baby tooth or teeth under your pillow at night to help others have teeth!

This month's article is on dental anxiety, which can affect both adults and children. Dental anxiety is a common issue that can prevent patients from visiting the dentist and letting problems grow, so check out the article for a few tips to help you (or someone you know) cope with dental anxiety and ensure you're keeping on top of your regular dental appointments!

Stay safe and healthy,

Dental anxiety can lead you to avoid appointments or allow too much time between scheduled appointments, which can lead to oral health issues. Lack of professional and regular cleanings also increases the risk for gum disease and other issues such as cavities, loose teeth, and bad breath.
