As a parent, it is intuition to protect your child from all that you are able. Some parents hover, others coddle, some have more of the ‘try it once’ approach. Children learn a variety of ways and it takes a bit of trial and error before learning the best way to reach your child as they start to experience the world. No matter how many times you may say, ‘don’t touch, it’s hot,’ it is possible that the child won’t understand ‘hot’ until they feel what ‘hot’ is. Children look to adults to guide them, and to keep them safe and feeling secure. A trip to the Colonia dentist is no different.
Graduation season is upon us and parents and seniors across the nation are sending out invitations and making the final touches on their celebration plans. But aside, from the cap and gown, guest book, and mints, our Colonia dentist is happy to help you look your best for when you walk across the stage to accept your well-earned diploma.
Spring is officially here, though with the nor’easter in the area, it’s hard to imagine budding trees and blossoming flowers. Still, when the snow and ice clear, we’ll dig ourselves out and be ready for warmer temperatures. So what does springtime mean for you? At our Colonia dentist office, spring means an upswing in dental injuries due to spring sports. To others, spring brings to mind outdoor activities, spring cleaning, and a hint at the summer to come. If you or your child will be participating in sports this spring, it may be of interest to get fitted for a mouthguard.
February is a month full of National Awareness. National Black History Month and National Women’s History Month are recognized in our country as we celebrate the obstacles and road blocks many of our heroes overcame in order to stand up for our rights and our freedom; paving the road to greatness. But this month also has an important role for the dentist Colonia families love.
Did you know it takes about 30 days to form a new habit? Okay, so it may not be a scientifically proven fact, but it does make sense. If you add something new to your current routine, it takes time to have it take hold.

We are just days away from ringing in the New Year. As the countdown approaches, have you given any thought to your dental benefits? Have you scheduled your exam with your Colonia dentist?
