Thank you for visiting the inaugural post on this blog. I wanted to start this blog for a number of reasons. First, I felt myself thinking I wish my patients knew <insert not-so-secret-way-of-having-healthy-teeth here> a while ago. It might have saved them time, money or discomfort. Secondly, patients ask me questions. I thought to myself, if one patient spoke up about a question they have there must be so many more people wondering the same thing.
I also wanted a place that people can go to just learn about their oral health that isn't too stuffy. I will try not to fill this post with a bunch of dental jargon that you will have to look up online. If you are an existing patient you have probably heard me say things you will be reading in this blog but bear with me there might be some fun new stuff for you guys too.
Well, if this sounds like something you are interested in, come back and visit often. I hope to have a weekly snippets of information for you. So if you want to learn how to take better care of yourself, find out some basic Dental 101 knowledge or just are bored and feel like reading something slightly educational check back soon!
