It’s a love/hate thing…
Most patients love our automated confirmation/reminder system, but some…not so much. The nice thing is that it is fully customizable to fit YOUR needs. There should be a link on each text or email where you can customize the system the way you want. OR, simply email me at office@gvdental.comand let me know what you would prefer – only texts, only emails, phone call only – anything you would like. We would be happy to do for you.

Another reason to love PB&J.
Did you know that peanut butter, salmon or any other food rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) can help fight gum disease? New research shows people whose diets were rich in PUFAs were up to 20% less likely to have periodontitis. Periodontitis is a common inflammatory condition in which the gum tissue pulls away from the teeth, allowing bacteria to build up and potentially lead to bone and tooth loss.

“Whining” about stain…
There are so many foods and beverages that cause tooth stain, including coffee, tea, sweets, soda, certain dark colored fruits and wine. However, fibrous fruits such as apples and pears may help keep teeth healthy by boosting saliva flow, and scrubbing the tooth’s surface. This doesn’t replace flossing daily and brushing twice a day!
