April is National Oral Health Month and we’ve got something really exciting planned each week starting Monday, April 3. Check out Dr. Banh’s video below for all the details and don’t forget to tune back in on Monday so you don’t miss out! Have a great weekend everyone!
It’s been such a busy year that we’ve only published once in 2014, with the introduction of our new associate joining our growing practice. So our New Year’s resolution for next year is to post more than once in 2015 – That shouldn’t be too difficult to beat =). We’ve got so many new things planned at our office, including upgrading our dental software to help make things run more efficiently and eventually leading to a paperless, more environmentally friendly practice. We’ll also be partnering once again with The Rotary Club of Uxbridge in March 2015 for BRUSHAMANIA, visiting at least 5 different schools in the Uxbridge township. It seems like clinical cases are a big interest to most of our readers, so we’ll share some more of those in the months ahead.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for our blog. Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 28,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 10 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
Teams of five volunteers will be holding assemblies at Goodwood Public School,Joseph Gould Public School, and Uxbridge Public School on March 19, March 26, and March 28, respectively. These assemblies are aimed at teaching kids in Junior Kindergarten to Grade 3 about the importance of good oral hygiene, and establishing proper brushing and flossing techniques early on. Approximately 600 children will be reached through these assemblies.
Thanks to a generous grant from The Durham Ontario Dental Society, each child will receive a toothbrush, toothpaste, and a special booklet to help them keep track of their brushing habits during the month of April. When the students return their completed booklets to their teachers, they will receive a certificate and official Brushamania sticker acknowledging their hard work.
Encouraging children to develop good oral hygiene habits at an early age is essential for creating healthy smiles that will last into their adult years.
