Is there really such a thing as a tooth tattoo?

Sunflower Tooth Tattoo

A few years back my wife and I took some time off to walk up and down Atlantic Avenue for the Camden ME Arts and Crafts show.  My wife who is always on the lookout for making a new friend, overheard a conversation that a “tourist” was having with one of the artisans, and she overheard the “tourist” verbalize that he was a tooth artist. My dear wife then came over to me, and suggested that I should go over and talk to the “tourist”, that mostly likely he was a dentist too. Ok, that’s not going to happen.  I remember thinking, “Leave him alone Lanita, he is on vacation.” While later on in the same day Lanita happened to run into the … Continue reading →

Local Jackie Kennedy Onassis’ Sporting the “Reusable Grocery Bag”

Jackie Onassis Rocking the Reusable Grocery Bags in Camden Rockland Rockport Maine

“So, how was your summer?” This is the question all students anticipate as they pack their bags and head on back to the life of stress and studies. Unlike most of my friends, I didn’t work at camp, stay at home, or travel the world; but, I did have just as much, if not more fun, than they did. I worked for my dad. Working at Seasons of Smiles is always an adventure — after all, we all know what a hoot Nellie Clark is. I spent my afternoons at the office and did a hodgepodge of random jobs like scanning, shredding, cleaning down operatories, and writing stuff for my dad’s website. And one of my favorites of all – finding office … Continue reading →

Seasons of Smiles Dental Celebrates Red Nose Day 2016

Art Thomas and Michelle Red Nose Day 2016

We clamored up the sidewalk with the sun on our backs and wind caressing our faces, slowly making our way back to the office after a delicious group lunch. “Time to take our pictures! Lets go lets go!” hollered our beloved hygienist Samantha Quinn–today was the day our office got to have a little fun while showing our support for Red Nose Day. We waltzed into the office, decked ourselves out in noses, glasses and necklaces. We half posed, half partied while pictures were snapped–but wait–what exactly is Red Nose Day? Don’t worry, we wondered too. For those of you who don’t know, Red Nose Day is a day dedicated to spreading awareness for children in need in the UK and Africa, … Continue reading →

Nitrous Oxide, gas (hoof hearted) in Camden Maine

Ben Medina and his Pops – (hoof hearted in camden Maine)

As you may know, Lanita and I have four kids. They have all left home now, but one of my sweetest memories is sitting around the dinner table listening to my kids’ humor. Somehow, they seem to feed off each other–one would start the rift, and the next one would then chime in. My kids do love a good laugh. Before long they will all be HOWLING, more often than not at something slightly inappropriate. All the while mom is telling them to stop while trying not to laugh herself. Sweet memories. Case in point. What is it with flatulance humor and little boys?  I’ve seen my son laugh to the point where I feared he may hurt himself.  A few years back my son … Continue reading →

A Brand New Toothbrush (video)

A New Toothbrush Needed

There are so many short cartoons on internet, it’s impossible to see them all. But when I saw the title, “A Brand New Toothbrush”, I couldn’t help but watch it. Hmmm, maybe this is something we can share on our website, since it seems to be dentally related. The first time I watched it I thought it was cute, but slightly inappropriate.  From what I understand the underlying message by the Plasmatic Research Laboratory at The University of Newcastle is that bacterium destroys your toothbrush.  That’s an interesting idea. I always thought that a toothbrush gets destroyed from mechanical wear and tear. Press here to learn more about the correct way to brush. Toothbrushes can get so grungy. With this in mind, last year at Yankee … Continue reading →

IPS e.max Before/After photos.

This is an "after" photo showing how beautiful a restored tooth looks like with e.max.

New, better and improved!!!   Traditionally when a crown was needed where aesthetics and strength were a concern, porcelain fused to metal (PFM) crowns were our #1 choice.  The strength came from the metal, and the porcelain stacked on top of the metal gave the crown it’s tooth color.  PFM crowns get their strength from the underlying metal.  Unfortunately, as the crown ages, the metal can show, or on a bright sunny day, when the light hits the tooth, you can see the difference.   Have you ever noticed a tooth that has a “grey line” along the gum line?  That may be the metal showing through underneath the porcelain. IPS e.max Crowns We now have another option to offer … Continue reading →
