Spring into Spring!

With all of the snow in 2015, many of our lives have been put on hold, leading to cancellations and cabin fever! Amidst all this extreme weather, we remember to change the oil in our car, get our hair done, and pay our taxes, but did you know that one of the most important annual events, our dental care visit, is often forgotten, postponed, or canceled? Skipping this small appointment will affect you in a big way. Something as simple as the early detection of a cavity can save you money down the road. The benefits do not stop there. Beyond brightening your smile and removal of dental tartar with a thorough cleaning, we can evaluate the health of your gums (which has been linked to diabetes, heart disease, and stroke) and screen for serious threats like oral cancer. It’s time to thaw out from this freeze and, dare we say, think Spring! Schedule your appointment today to help monitor and maintain your good health.

Oral Cancer Foundation Sponsors 15th Annual Oral Cancer Awareness Month in April 2015.

High Angle View Of A Woman Having Her Dental Checkup

April 1 kicks off the start of Oral Cancer Awareness Month. “The dental community needs to be the first line of defense against oral cancer,” said Brian Hill, founder and executive director of the Oral Cancer Foundation.” Just performing ‘opportunistic’ five-minute oral cancer screenings on the existing patient population that visits a dental office every day for routine hygiene appointments could have a profound impact on our ability to discover the disease at earlier, even precancerous, stages. To read more about this initiative, please check out the full article on our website.

Please check your calendar for your next dental appointment, and if you haven’t got one booked, call us today!

In an effort to increase efficiency, Maple Avenue Family Dentistry switched over to an automated confirmation system called Demand Force. We are now able to utilize text messaging and email as a way to confirm scheduled appointments. Please call or stop by the front desk to ensure your contact information is correct and up-to-date. If at times this system asks you to rate us, we thank you for your support!
