The deep heat of summer…

These hot, summer days have us all reaching for a cool beverage, but what are you reaching for? Say it ain’t soda, sports drinks, energy drinks, or juice boxes. These types of drinks are packed with sugar and calories, and they’ve been linked to numerous health problems–not least of which are your teeth. Think about(…)

Do like Dad does!

Fathers teach us so many valuable lessons–some we know and some we don’t. They very often shape the people we become and how we lead our life. Most of these life lessons inspire us to live our lives striving to be smarter, work harder, and set a good example for anyone who may be watching.(…)

A step toward spring…

It’s April again. That means any number of things to many different people. We at Finney Family Dentistry like to remember that April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month. It’s a sad fact that cancer of the mouth and upper throat collectively kill nearly one person every hour of every day of the year. Of the(…)

Celebrations Ahead!

On March 6th, we will celebrate National Dentists Day—a day where we can all take a minute to celebrate those select people who’ve made the health of our mouths their primary business. As it turns out, we here at Finney Family Dental try to celebrate dentists every day. We try to set a high bar(…)

2,022 great new reasons to smile.

Millions of people are making New Year’s resolutions to look better and feel better this year. Millions are also flaking out on their resolutions. Ruthlessly and wantonly, they ditch the new gym membership and reach for the pie. But here at Finney Family Dentistry? We have the secret. We do. We have the secret to(…)

Consider the reindeer.

Do you think that reindeer have to worry about shopping for the holidays? What to plan for a series of family visits? How to make sure the kids stay safe and busy? Do you think reindeer need to worry about brushing and flossing their teeth? We don’t know for sure, but here at Finney Family(…)

All the little goblins…

With Halloween fast approaching, it’s important to keep your kids’ teeth clean and encourage their brushing habits. Your little goblins and ghouls will probably be getting a lot of sugary snacks near the end of this month. While some people have switched to handing out reduced sugar or sugar-free snacks, we can’t guarantee that your(…)

Food for healthy teeth?

“They are way too young to have cavities already.” “They rarely eat candy or sugar that causes cavities.” These are just some of the comments parents make when learning that their young children have cavities. The truth is if your child has teeth, they are at risk of tooth decay. Know what helps? It’s pretty(…)

It’s time once again…

Woo hoo! Kids are back to school and out of the house! But maybe you forgot one thing? Having your kids out of school for the past few months has probably been a certain amount of fun, but we are closing in on the end of summer and it’s time to send them back to(…)

We can’t say it loud enough…

The benefits of drinking water are many. Very, very many, in fact. From helping you to improve your physical performance to improving your energy levels and relieving common illnesses like constipation, headaches, and more, drinking enough water is essential for your overall physical, emotional, and psychological well-being. One of the other big advantages of drinking(…)

Ah, dads…

Last month, we celebrated Mother’s Day with some good advice for moms. We’d be remiss if we didn’t show up for Father’s Day with equally valuable stuff. So very quickly, before we get to the good stuff: • According to the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), men are more likely to miss dental visits due(…)

Some good reminders for mom!

Children grow quickly, and a lot of mothers wonder where the time goes. There are school, activities, appointments, transportation, and the million other things mothers manage to cram into just one day. With all the effort and time spent on raising children, moms may often put their own health needs aside and delay things like(…)

April Awareness…

It’s April again. That means Easter. And April showers. And remembering that April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month. It’s a sad fact that cancer of the mouth and upper throat collectively kill nearly one person every hour of every day of the year. Of the people newly diagnosed with these cancers, a whopping 40 percent(…)

March into better nutrition

In theory, March means that spring is right around the corner. It’s also become synonymous with March Madness. All of us at Finney Family Dental would like to remind you that March is also, and remains, National Nutrition Month. Although dentists and nutrition may seem unrelated, nutrition plays a vital role in oral health. This(…)
