This year we are a drop-off location for Toys for Tots. Please feel free to share this with friends and family members. Just bring a new, unwrapped toy to the office on or before Friday, December 14th. No gift is too small. Two of the main distribution areas are in White Center, which makes this even more important to our office team. We want make sure that children in our community have something special to open this holiday season. You do not need to be a patient to come to our office and donate a toy. Help us put smiles on faces of the children in our community! Thank you and Happy Holidays!

Recently one of our local news stations, King 5, presented a piece on what they called "dental doppler." This tool gives patients a chance to see what we observe during an exam. If you have been in the office within the last six months, there is a good chance you have already experienced this technology. We use Soprolife, which is a different product brand but still the same concept. Click here to watch the short video.

We were very flattered this morning when we received an email informing us that some of our patients nominated us for the Happiest Dentist Office. Apparently we are one of the finalists in the Red Tricycle poll. If you would like to help us earn the honor of Happiest Dentist Office 2012, please feel free to vote. We enjoy what we do, and it is wonderful to hear that our patients notice. Thank you!

At our office, we make sure our patients leave with a mouth full of healthy teeth. White teeth do not always equal healthy teeth, but they do make us feel more confident. Friends, family and patients are always asking me how to whiten their teeth quickly. Whitening strips? Bleaching trays? While these at-home methods do work, the materials used by dentists are more concentrated than those of the store-bought variety.
Recently, I started using a teeth whitening system from Sinsational Smile (no...there is no misspelling). It is a 20-minute in-office treatment that quickly, and effectively, whitens your teeth. Like all teeth whitening treatments, maintenance is key. You don't reach your peak of fitness and then just assume that your body will stay that way without continued exercise, right? The same idea applies to whitened teeth. Our new system includes a take-home tray and touch-up pen to keep your whites pearly white.
Please remember that crowns and veneers cannot be bleached through whitening systems. If you have not been in the office lately, and have been avoiding getting those cavities filled, we will advise you to do so first. What good are sparkly white teeth if they are not cared for properly? :-)
If you have any questions about our new whitening system, please contact the office. Jennifer or April will assist you. 206-762-2573.
