Dear Valued Patients and Friends,

We know fall can be a very busy time with back-to-school in full swing and fall sports filling up the calendar but even when life gets a little nutty, it's still important to keep you and your family's oral health in check.

To help, we've got some great information about the benefits of sports mouthguards, how oral piercings can affect one's dental health and we cover the long term affects of drug and alcohol abuse on the mouth. Plus, we recently welcomed a new dental hygienist to our team and you can meet her, and find all other resources, below.
Lastly, now is a great time to schedule your family's fall recare visits, call our office at the number below or follow this link to schedule online. We hope to see you soon!

Meet Emily! 🎉
We are so excited to welcome Emily to our office this month! She is joining us as our new dental hygienist. She joins our amazing hygiene team with Joanna, Lea, and Cassie. Emily comes to us with 15 years of dental experience. She has worked as both a dental assistant and hygienist. 

Emily lives in Forest Lake with her husband, 2 wonderful daughters, and 2 cute dogs. She enjoys spending time outside with her family. Her husband loves to fish and their daughters are involved in dance, gymnastics and soccer. They often are found 4 wheeling together as a family around the state as well as biking and walking. Emily will be working in our office 4 days a week and is excited to meet all of our fabulous patients. 

Please help us welcome Emily to the practice! 👋
