Maybe the dog got it, or after wrapping it up in a napkin at lunch time you never found it again. I have never lost mine literally, but if you saw my retainer, you’d say it was a lost cause.

This is largely because coming to the dentist is not always high on people’s list of favorite things to do. And this is completely understandable. Having a gloved, masked, person 15 inches from your body and working in your mouth is intimidating to say the least. Also, if you have had a previous negative experience, it adds to the anxiety of going to the dentist. We often hear comments like “No offense, but I don’t like the dentist” or “I hate coming here.”  While we do understand, and try not to take it personally, there are times when it can be very deflating for us to hear.

Let’s face it, in this ever changing health care environment one thing that remains a constant is a patients need to be treated with the respect and the doctors need to remain at the forefront of delivering the necessary care customized for each unique patient. It’s a timeless relationship that, all to often, is reduced due to the constraints of traditional insurance models.

Seven years later he had a permanent bridge placed by Dr. Gerald Pendleton DDS here in Camden Maine. Do you want to venture the cost on a 4 unit bridge back in 1970? A whopping $180!

Nitrous Oxide, gas (hoof hearted) in Camden Maine https://seasons-of-smiles.com/nitrous-oxide-gas-hoof-hearted-in-camden-maine.htm https://seasons-of-smiles.com/nitrous-oxide-gas-hoof-hearted-in-camden-maine.htm#comments Sun, 13 Mar 2016 16:19:57 +0000 https://seasons-of-smiles.com/?p=12364 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 →

Clear, removable Invisalign trays are a less invasive orthodontic treatment method. With Invisalign technology, your teeth can be straightened without causing inconveniences to your daily life. Benefits You Probably Didn’t Expect The most obvious difference between Invisalign treatment and braces is their appearance, but there’s more to it than that. For example… Less office visits. We’ll see you only once every 4 to 6 weeks. Invisalign trays can sometimes double as whitening trays or protective mouth gear for sports. The removable trays allow you to brush and floss normally, which results in … Continue reading →

Dental Website Design https://seasons-of-smiles.com/dental-website-design.htm https://seasons-of-smiles.com/dental-website-design.htm#respond Thu, 25 Feb 2016 02:00:34 +0000 https://seasons-of-smiles.com/?p=11364 We at Seasons of Smiles Dental run our own website. I have heard it suggested that it’s not usually a good idea for the dentist to make their own website. And as the years have progressed I must admit, there have been times that I was tempted to throw in the towel and go buy into one of those off the shelf dental websites. I cringe at the mistakes made while running our own dental website.  Even now, there are a few rough edges that need to be worked on. But overall, looking back, I’m glad we stuck with it. I absolutely love our end product. I think it’s the BEST dental office website. Dental website Design: It’s a sleeper. … Continue reading →

(2/13/2016)  The arguments sure did get mean spirited.  There were times where I thought Jeb Bush would go over and punch Donald Trump in the nose.  I was hoping. 🙂   It was a verbal blood bath.  I was watching the debate with my wife, and it was interesting to see how uncomfortable the whole thing made her. This morning as I was reading all the opinion pieces written about last nights debate, it was interesting to see how diverse the opinions can be. How about last night’s presidential DENTAL debate?  Just to refresh your memories I have found pictures on the net that illustrate their smiles. If you … Continue reading →
