Thank you to Dr. Rachel and her team at Advanced Family Dental. Their kindness and understanding makes difficult appointment so much easier. I cannot express how much this means to me.
Are your phone services down? I've tried calling on my cell and a landline this morning and get an automated message saying the number is out of service.
Want to give a shout out for some excellent care today!!! My 9-yr. old was so upset about breaking a baby molar clear off from a sucker. ๐Ÿญ Had to hear all about it, through FaceTime, while I was at work. ๐Ÿ˜ข Called Advanced, they made an appointment within an hour & half to check it out! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Pointing out a positive, how it happen before 5:00. (Thank you again, ๐Ÿ’—cause this mom felt helpless from work!!) During this visit it was discovered that the adult tooth was pushing its way in, & also another one on the opposite side. So that tooth was removed as well. ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿฆท
My 9-yr. olds comment to us, after work, and all of this was done & said....
โ€œSheโ€™s a professional.โ€
Thank you Rachel!! Appreciate the care you gave. ๐Ÿ˜
is Dr. Tricia Nelson still waiting or has baby arrived?
As usual from the time I walked in the front door till I walked out the same door I was treated with great courtesy. Definitely would recommend this group of people for a great experience!!!!!!!!!!
Had a great checkup and great service and look forward to my appointments thanks Robbi for the great job I enjoy visiting with you
I have definitely enjoyed each of my experiences at Advanced Family Dental. Who says that? I did. ๐Ÿ˜
Always a pleasure, Robbi Woodside!
We would highly recommend Advaced Family Dental!
Friendly professional staff who put you at ease๐Ÿ‘
Dr. Trisha and staff at AFD. I would personally like to invite you to join me in raising money for the American Cancer Society. Would you consider joining me or at least supporting me.

WHEN WE PICTURE people of earlier eras, particularly pre-industrial ones, we tend to assume that they must have had really bad teeth. ๐Ÿคจ While it definitely is easier to get high-quality dental care these days, not to mention modern orthodontics and modern root canal therapy, the people of the past didnโ€™t always have terrible dental health. Especially in cultures with no access to refined sugar.

The ancient Native Americans ate a diet mostly of corn (maize), beans, squash, fish, and game, as well as fresh fruit and nuts. ๐ŸŒฝ๐ŸŸ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿฅœ Their high-fiber diet helped keep their teeth and gums healthy. The harmful bacteria in our mouths need plenty of sugar and starch to multiply. Foods high in fiber have the benefit of scrubbing our teeth as we eat them.

Just because tooth decay was uncommon doesnโ€™t mean it didnโ€™t happen. One museum in Manitou Springs, Colorado, for example, has an exhibit of replica skulls with holes in the jaw bones from advanced gum disease. To fight against tooth decay, ancient Native Americans used chewsticks โ€” twigs that have been frayed by a rock on one end and sharpened into a toothpick on the other. Chewing on the frayed ends cleans the teeth. ๐Ÿ˜ They also kept their breath fresh by chewing herbs like sage, cucacua, and mint. #DentalHistory #FunFact #NativeAmericans

ITโ€™S NOT ALWAYS easy to teach a young child how to brush and floss. Little kids are balls of energy with no attention span, and a brushing session is likely to go awry. ๐Ÿคช We have a few tips to help out frazzled parents.

#1: Prioritize brushing. We shouldnโ€™t treat it like an irritating chore, because our kids will pick up on that. Set an example of brushing and flossing being an unskippable and important part of the morning and evening routine.
#2: Brush wherever works! Donโ€™t feel like brushing can only happen in the bathroom. If itโ€™s easier to do somewhere else, thatโ€™s great!
#3: The routine is more important than having toothpaste. If the toothpaste tube is empty or missing or its contents were turned into an art project, brush anyway! Donโ€™t miss a day just for the toothpaste.
#4: Children are more likely to like and use a toothbrush that they picked out themselves, so let them pick theirs!
#5: When possible, brush in front of the mirror. Thatโ€™s where the kids will be brushing once theyโ€™re doing it on their own. In the meantime, it helps them feel more involved in the process.
#6: Make brushing fun! The more the grown-ups act like brushing is fun, the happier the kids will be to cooperate. ๐Ÿ˜„ Keep up a good attitude about it and help them enjoy it by playing fun music to time their two minutes of brushing. #BrushYourTeeth #BrushingTips #OralHealth
