Most of us would agree that 2020 and the start of 2021 has not been the greatest time. Our entire way of life has been affected and it has been a difficult transition for many people.

Everyone here at Aesthetic Smile Design has been healthy and we are excited to announce that we will be resuming care for our patients starting June 1, 2020. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
Did you know that the health of your mouth reveals signs of certain health issues? Think of your mouth as a window to the overall health of your body. There are certain medical issues that negatively impact your teeth and gums that you might not think of, such as:
In April we celebrate World Health Day, a day that brings awareness to global health issues. This is a good time to also remind patients of how oral health affects not just your teeth, mouth and gums but your systemic, or entire body health, too.

One of our patients recently told us: “I don’t dread coming to the dentist!” Positive feedback like this is music to our ears.

Poor dental hygiene or medical conditions can deteriorate your teeth and gums, but the problems don’t stop at your mouth.

We hope your new year is off to a great start! One thing we wish for all our patients in 2020 is good health.
