June 2016: Tips, eNews, and More!


Summer is finally here, with June 21st being the official first day of summer and the longest sun lit day of the year. Whether you're drawn to the beach, the campfire or the patio we hope you make the most of the warm weather and get outside - it will be winter again before you know it. As your children are wrapping up another school year be sure to schedule them for a dental appointment before their schedule is filled with trips, summer camps, and summer jobs.

We also want to wish a Happy Father's Day to all of the Dads on June 19th. If you're having trouble coming up with something special to do, check out this top 25 gifts list. There's also no shame in sticking to the classics like golfing or fishing, ties & socks - they're classics for a reason!

Wishing you and your family a safe and wonderful summer.

Camping with a Smile

There's nothing like spending a hot summer weekend in the great outdoors, paddling a canoe, hiking through the woods, sleeping under the stars, leaving work and all of your other responsibilities behind to be one with nature.

Well, maybe not all of your responsibilities. Whether you're a regular outdoors man or an inexperienced tag along, there's plenty of space in that backpack for your toothbrush, so before you brave the 400 traffic consider these oral hygiene tips for the outdoors.

1. Mouthwash: The Next Best Thing

Packing mouthwash can be a lifesaver on camping trips when brushing your teeth isn't practical. While mouthwash doesn't replace brushing, it helps in reducing the level of oral bacteria to a minimum while fighting against morning breath and other annoyances. Be sure to purchase non-alcoholic mouthwash so it can be used by campers of any age.

Honey Grilled Shrimp

With the cold weather behind us you're probably ready to take a break from those heavy, hearty meals like stew and chili. It's time to get out the patio furniture and fire up the grill for your summer favorites.

This month we're keeping it light with honey grilled seafood. Feel free to get creative by picking up some fresh fruit or vegetables and making kabobs.
