NJ Top Dentist!
This month we congratulate Dr. Vander Vliet on being named a 2020 top dentist by New Jersey Monthly magazine for the third consecutive year! Only dentists who were voted in by their peers were chosen to be a top dentist! The September issue of New Jersey Monthly is on newsstands now and can be accessed on njmonthly.com!
It’s National Gum Care Month!
Is your smile supported by strong, healthy gums? Periodontal (gum) disease is now linked to larger health conditions like diabetes, heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, dementia, and Alzheimers. Keeping your gums in excellent condition is critical for your overall well-being. If you are overdue for a cleaning, don’t wait any longer- call us today to schedule your next visit.
Speaking of Gum Disease…
Researchers at NYU College of Dentistry have found evidence that periodontal disease may increase the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. The NYU study offers fresh evidence that gingival inflammation may contribute to brain inflammation, neurodegeneration and Alzheimer’s. Just another reason to call us for that cleaning, or go ahead with the periodontal work that you may be postponing…
A Much Needed Break!
The office will be closed starting Friday September 4th, and we will return on Monday September 14th at 8:00am. If you have a dental emergency during that time, please call our office at (908) 852-8858, and our answering machine will provide you with the covering dentist’s phone number.
Flossing once a day increases your life expectancy by seven years!!!
