Thank You!

We wanted to extend our biggest ‘THANK YOU’ to everyone who was involved in the Girl Rising event! Around 250 people came to support the cause and view the documentary; which was over double the amount we needed to match our goal! Thanks to those in attendance as well as those who helped promote the film. We had such a great turn-out, the theater had to move us into their largest room!
The film was extremely touching and opened our eyes to different issues facing girls around the world. The stories were engaging and gave us a sense of hope for the future.
You can still help the Girl Rising campaign. There are many partners for the organization! Check it out here

Dental Tips to Promote Longevity

We’ve all heard about the connection our oral health has to our overall health. Now it is more important than ever before. The link between gum disease, cancer or heart issues is your teeth! Studies have now confirmed build-up of plaque can lead to more serious illness such as heart disease and some cancers!  Taking care of your teeth should be a top priority in your overall health as the effects of poor dental hygiene can be severe. Here are some tips to ensure your teeth are in tip-top shape!
1.       Prevention is key- Regular dental visits, a healthy diet low in sugars, alcohol, and caffeine, along with regular brushing and flossing are sure to keep you healthy!
2.       Take action if you see a problem- If you’re noticing red gums, soreness, or bleeding when you brush and floss, see your dentist immediately. These are some of the initial signs of gum disease.
3.       Be consistent and smart- Don’t skip brushing or flossing! Carry a travel toothbrush, sugarless gum or floss wherever you go for quick clean-ups!
