Thank you to everyone who came to our Halloween Candy Buy Back to donate their extra Halloween Candy! It was so fun to see everyone. The donated candy will be sent this week to operation Gratitude, who then packages it and sends it to our hard working military troops overseas. What a great show of thanks to those serving our country! Our event was a success, and we are excited to be sending the candy to our troops.
Dr. Kristin Nelson and her team sponsored the Border Bolt 5K at Shannon Park Elementary on October 27th. The event was a fundraiser for the District 196 school. Dr. Nelson participated in the health fair where she gave away water to the thirsty racers along with tooth brushes. She also had a drawing for a Sonicare Toothbrush for one lucky winner. We enjoyed meeting many people from the community at the event and hope to see you again. Enjoy some photos of the event below:

We are excited to welcome Brooke back to the office after taking a few weeks off. She and her husband Nate had a healthy, beautiful baby boy, Kylan, in May. We are so happy to have you back in the office Brooke! You were missed by all.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), the authority on children’s oral health, is encouraging parents and caregivers to enjoy a happy Halloween by simply brushing their children’s teeth for two minutes, twice a day.
In time for back-to-school season, the AAPD joined with the Ad Council, as part of the Partnership for Healthy Mouths, Health Lives, to launch a historic nationwide campaign designed to encourage parents and caregivers to modify their children’s oral health behaviors through low-cost, preventive strategies. Campaign media partners include Sesame Workshop, DreamWorks, Cartoon Network, My Kazoo! and many others.
According to AAPD President Dr. Joel H. Berg, “This first-of-its-kind campaign unifies dozens of dental organizations around a common message and raises the awareness of children and their parents about the importance of oral health, which is critical, and desperately needs attention on Halloween, and every single day of the year.”
In order to properly prepare for the Halloween holiday, AAPD urges parents and caregivers to visit the campaign’s website http://2min2x.org/ for key recommendations and tips on maintaining healthy teeth on this holiday and throughout the year:
In fact, AAPD has revised its Policy on Dietary Recommendations for Infants, Children, and Adolescents, which can be located at http://www.aapd.org/media/Policies_Guidelines/P_DietaryRec.pdf.
