This article is coming a couple months late, but did you know that February is Children’s Dental Health month? Every year thousands of dentists, dental hygienists and dental students travel to local schools to educate children about taking care of their teeth. 

Part of Children’s Health Month also involves “Give Kids a Smile.” Around the country dental schools open up their doors to children who would otherwise not have access to proper dental care. As a student at the University of Buffalo this was always a great day and one I looked forward to. It was a great opportunity to become more comfortable with pediatric dentistry as well as to give back to the local community.

Speaking With Children About Brushing

This year I had the opportunity to speak to the children across the street from our office at Edukids as well as the pre-K through 2nd graders at St. John’s the Baptist School in Alden. We talked all about why brushing and flossing are important as well as what foods are healthy and unhealthy for their teeth. Finally, we finished up by everyone practicing their brushing skills on “Sparky” the dog. Overall they were both great days and everyone had fun!

Dear patients, friends and family,

In light of recent events surrounding the Corona Virus/COVID-19 and the guidance of our national and state dental societies, we will be rescheduling all 6 month cleaning appointments and any elective dental treatment over the next few weeks.

We continue to be available for dental emergencies and are accessible via phone and email. We love our patients and are willing to do whatever we can for the sake of community health and well being, especially for those among us that could be most affected by infection.

At this time, we have NO known cases of COVID-19 among our staff. Dental offices are at extreme risk for propagation of the virus due to the large number of aerosols created during dental procedures, as well as the close proximity we are in to our patients. Therefore we will continue to adhering to the highest levels of infection control.

I am confident all of us will be better off if we all do our part to protect the community and "flatten the curve". If you have any questions or are looking for any updates please follow our Facebook page or call us at 716-652-0600.
