Although I have been in dentistry over 40 years, it was only 20 years ago that I made the daily commitment to thoroughly cleaning my mouth. For the past 20 years, I have not missed one day of my oral health care ritual of flossing every tooth, two minute brushing, and tongue scraping. This is a no excuses, bright line habit I do every single morning without fail. I love that I do this for myself (and for those closest to me) and today I want to share the many benefits of tongue scraping.

A healthy lifestyle is important to you, so you’re sure to see your doctor at least once a year for a checkup, you eat a salad every day for lunch, and you maintain the right balance between work and your life at home. But there’s one habit you’re having a hard time breaking – eliminating soda. The fizzy drink is hard to say no to, and I understand how tempting it can be. But did you know that soda can be detrimental to your smile for more reasons than you might expect? That’s why I’d like to share my favorite alternative (that’s just as tasty) – seltzer water.

I’ve recently made the decision to upgrade my same-day dental restoration system. My team, patients, and I are in love all over again! Using superior quality dental porcelain, I’m able to give patients the high quality restorations they’ve come to expect in just one visit. I’ve been using CEREC Brand for many years, but the new system allows me to feel like a true artist as I craft detailed, custom dental restorations that restore smiles to their natural strength.
