Did you know?
The average amount left by the tooth fairy in 2019 was $4.13. That's up from $3.70 in 2018.
Speaking of tooth fairy, here's a TBT of our very own Jennie throwing out dental floss from our 2013 Viking Fest float. We don't know what's stuck on her foot either.
With all our enhanced layers of protective coverings, it’s difficult to talk with you and even more difficult for you to see us. We’re now wearing these buttons to help you remember what we look like when we’re smiling back at you.
We’ve been missing you!
We are excited to have the opportunity to welcome you back! Our office has always utilized personal protective equipment (PPE) that has exceeded all CDC guidelines. However, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic we have instituted additional protocols to ensure your safety.
While you were away, we were working hard to continue providing the highest level of service and treatment in a safe and efficient way. In addition to our extensive infection control training, here are some of the enhanced precautions we are taking to protect you. We will be smiling under our masks when we greet you, and we hope you will be too!
Also, we will:
connect with you 2-3 days before your visit for a convenient health screening.
guide you from your car directly to the treatment room, just call or text when you arrive.
limit interaction in the office so we can keep our focus on you.
provide clear plexiglass shields in the greeting area for your protection.
continue responsible hand hygiene throughout the day for staff and patients.
provide an oral pre-rinse for you. It’s refreshing and limits germ transmission.
take the temperature and lung efficiency of our staff daily, and we will take yours too.
help with payment arrangements in advance to allow a low contact exit from the appointment (we now have the option of making payments on-line!).
enhance our clinical disinfection procedures for all surfaces between visits.
have continuous ambient air management to remove germs from circulating air.
have non-toxic UV air and surface decontamination protocols.
have upgraded visors, masks and gowns. Safer for you, and we look great!
continue to use high volume suction to reduce aerosols by 90-98%.
complete nightly fogging procedures to disinfect all surfaces and fixtures in the office.
add teledentistry services for follow-up and communication that can be done online.
Please be ready--a familiar and friendly voice will be reaching out soon to schedule your next dental health visit. Should you experience a change in your oral health, please call us right away. We are here for you!
thedentalexpress.com A trip to the dentist can be intimidating. After all, there are whirring drills, lights, and sometimes, gum-numbing injections. For 5% of the population, this fear is so severe that their dental health suffers. In fact, according to Women’s Health Magazine, roughly 25% of those surveyed would pref...

We appreciate our hygienists so much. And we know our patients do to.
Our hygienist Hallie looks pretty cozy while having her ZOOM whitening done.
It's here! The new, revolutionary tooth whitening system that can erase years from your looks in a single 45 minute visit. Zoom whitening, developed by Philips, is the #1 patient-requested professional whitening treatment, capable of safely brightening your teeth by up to eight shades. In fact, it's the #1 patient-requested professional whitening treatment, owing to even results, amazing convenience and minimal tooth sensitivity following the treatment.
Zoom whitening doesn't require trays, wearing strips for days or other hassles. All we do is apply Zoom whitening gel to your teeth during the appointment, and activate it using a special Zoom light for three 15-minute sessions. The advanced gel gently penetrates the sub-micron pores of tooth enamel to break down stains and eliminate years of discoloration.
Curious if Zoom is right for you? Call us to find out.
Yesterday afternoon was spent getting re-certified in CPR and First Aide. Thank you to Stacy Alexander from Kitsap OMS for another great class.
This is what NOT to do at the dentist.

Tooth loss can indicate malnutrition:
Older adults are at risk for both impaired oral health and malnutrition, according to a study by Rutgers University researchers.
The study, recently published in the Journal of Aging Research and Clinical Practice, analyzed the health records of 107 community-dwelling senior citizens treated at the Rutgers School of Dental Medicine clinic between 2015 to 2016.
The results showed that more than 25 percent of the patients had malnutrition or were at risk for malnutrition. The researchers saw a trend in which patients with 10 to 19 teeth were more likely to be at risk for malnutrition. Those patients classified as having malnutrition had higher rates of weight loss, ate less and more frequently reported that they suffered with dementia and/or depression and severe illnesses than those who had a normal nutrition status.
"The mouth is the entry way for food and fluid intake," said lead author Rena Zelig, director of the Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition Program at Rutgers School of Health Professions. "If its integrity is impaired, the functional ability of an individual to consume an adequate diet may be adversely impacted."
Although further studies need to examine the relationships between tooth loss and malnutrition risk, Zelig said the findings show that dental clinics are ideal locations to perform nutritional status screenings as they can identify patients who may not regularly visit a primary care provider and who may be at risk for malnutrition. "Clinicians also can provide patients with referrals to Registered Dietitians and community assistance programs such as Meals on Wheels to prevent further decline in nutritional status," she said.
This was the first part of a mixed-methods grant to research the associations between tooth loss and nutritional status in older adults. The second part of the grant built on these results and qualitatively studied the eating experience and eating-related quality of life of community-dwelling older adults using qualitative interviews.
The study sets the stage for further research to examine the relationships between tooth loss and malnutrition risk and the impact of tooth loss on the eating experience and eating-related quality of life.

When I wrote a post expressing disbelief at dental fees, I got a lot of feedback, from patients annoyed with their dentists, and dentists annoyed with me. Here's what I learned about what makes dental costs so high.
