New study highlights concerns about women's oral health
According to recent research by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, dental neglect is prevalent among young adult women. The study compared oral health of nearly 5,000 women between the ages of 15 and 44, finding a pattern of insufficiencies in dental health care.

This is particularly worrisome, because hormonal fluctuations associated with pregnancy can increase the risk of gingivitis, making oral care especially important for women of childbearing age. Good hygiene, proper nutrition, and regular dental care are important for women and men of all ages. Additionally, experts recommend a prenatal exam for women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant.
Starting smiles off right
Parenting is a tough job and, most would say, a juggling act. It's easy to let a few things slide, but it's not always advisable. According to a new study, 75 percent of parents admit that their children sometimes skip brushing their teeth. While it may seem harmless, such lax habits early in life can set a long-term pattern of poor oral health.

If you find it difficult to gain your child's cooperation, ask your dentist or hygienist for advice. It is important to educate little ones about the risks of oral disease. Additionally, you can make oral hygiene fun by choosing a bright-colored toothbrush, using a song or video to time the two-minute brushing session, or similar techniques. Experts advise diligence in routine dental care, because preventive treatments and early diagnosis are essential for preventing cavities, toothaches, and other common childhood dental problems.
Patient Reviews
" Thanks you for taking such good care of my Aunt! She couldn't believe how well her visit went.

My Aunt's response -

"Alicia, I firmly believe in giving credit when due. On that note I have to thank you for the wonderful experience I had today at the dentist that you referred me to. It was pain free, had excellent bed side manners and a lot of patience with me even when I was so nervous that I was fighting off the gas and novacain. (sp) Hopefully I am finally on the right track and that my horrific dentist shopping days are over. Thanks again, I really appreciate it!!!! :) :) :)"

You guys are the best!"

~ Alicia
