Summertime and the living is easy!

SUMMER can bring fun vacations which may also mean a break from routines. Don’t take a vacation from your good oral hygiene habits! Remember to pack that toothbrush and floss and continue to use them daily. Extra sweets along with the traditional BBQ menu, including corn on the cob, make it even more important for you to maintain your daily flossing after these summer meals and snacks. 

Summer schedules are often very busy for our patients, but please keep your scheduled checkups. Dr. Miller can better monitor your dental health and find any issues that may become a problem. Call us at the first sign of any dental problems involving your teeth or gums. We are here for you! 

Dental accidents can also increase during the summer. Children (and adults!) are playing outside, skating or skateboarding and also enjoying time poolside. Dr. Miller will always see you as soon as possible if you need any emergency dental services.
