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(…)

From the very first tooth…

Each February since 1949, the American Dental Association celebrates our smallest patients with National Children’s Dental Health Month. They, like us at Finney Family Dental, feel that the importance of good, oral health from the very first tooth is essential for a lifetime of healthy smiles. It is important to share your good oral health(…)

With every New Year comes…

With every New Year comes any number of things, but chief among them are the annual New Year’s Resolutions. The New Year hands us a fresh start to set much needed new goals and better ourselves, but these resolutions are getting a bad reputation. You’ll hear about the two-week “New year’s rush” at any gym(…)

Reindeer in 2020?

Do you think that reindeer have to worry about shopping for the 2020 holidays? What to plan when family visits need to change? 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(…)

Looking good is feeling good.

Maybe that’s why 28% of millennials admit that the appearance of their teeth undermines their ability to interview for a job. Maybe that’s why your smile is the first–and best–way to make a stellar first impression in general. If you feel your smile is impeding your ability to achieve your goals, maybe it’s time to(…)

A little more peace of mind

Once the calendar changes, a lot of things come to mind. It depends on the month. Back to school, Fall, and then Winter are probably most familiar right now. Maybe the end of the summer holds meaning for you. Maybe you count the days until Thanksgiving. As we mark the seasons changing, now is a(…)
