Bill Curtis has a Smile Makeover

Bill Curtis's new smile makeover at Seasons of Smiles Dental

When Bill Curtis was thirteen years old he was riding his bike near the General Henry Knox Museum at Montpelier in Thomaston, Maine. He crashed his bike and chipped his two front teeth in half.  By the time he was seen by a dentist it was too late so his two front teeth were removed and a flipper partial was put into place. 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! For the next forty-six years, that bridge held on. No decay and nothing broke on it. However, aesthetically the bridge needed help. Curious to see more … Continue reading →

Starbucks is Hiring

Starbucks is Hiring, and so are we at Seasons of Smiles Dental.

This morning while checking out a bulletin board in Lewiston, I saw this posted. Starbucks is hiring. I thought it was cute, and an effective way of getting the word out. We are hiring in Camden, Maine as well. We currently have two part time positions available. 1) We are searching for a dental hygienist that is looking for work. Maybe you need to pick up an extra day or so?  Throughout the years, we have met some great new graduates that are having a hard time finding their first office, and we are reaching out to you too. If you, or someone you know, is interested, please send them here. 2) We are also looking for a part time dental assistant, no … Continue reading →

Cold sores, Acyclovir and amazon.com

5% Acyclovir from Amazon.com

Am I the last person in the know?  Have you ever felt like they are having a party, and you haven’t been invited?  That’s the way I am feeling.  Something is afoot. This week I woke up with a cold sore on my lip.  For those of you who suffer like I do, you know the feeling, that dull burning sensation.  For those of you who want to know more about cold sores, also known as Herpes Simplex type 1, or their symptoms check here. When I went through dental school the drug of choice for cold sores was Acyclovir.  From what I understand there is no cure for cold sores.  The virus infects the nerve receptors, and it will always … Continue reading →

Nemo 2013 – Camden, Rockland, Midcoast – Maine

Downtown Rockland Maine in the middle of Nemo blizzard

Cabin fever has set in and Lanita and I are dying to get out. We are in the middle of a classic Nor’Easter. They have given this blizzard a name, Nemo. Lanita and I jump in the Suburban and drive from Camden to Rockland Maine taking pictures. I kept thinking, this sure would be silly to get stuck or have a fender bender, just for the sake of a joy ride. Lanita has a positive outlook on life, pedal to the metal and all that, there was no keeping her home. As usual she is right, we had a blast sliding around!!! A few pictures to give you a small taste of what a nor-easter is like in midcoast Maine. … Continue reading →

Village Soup - Camden Maine

We at Seasons of Smiles Dental were saddened to hear about the closure of all Village NetMedia publications.  The Republican Journal was founded in 1829. The Courier-Gazette started in 1846 and the Camden Herald in 1870. The Bar Harbor Times is nearly 100 years old. The Capital Weekly was started after 1991. I just want to thank Village Soup for all that you did for our community.  As the years progressed we became big fans of Village Soup online.  Everything we posted was picked up by google.  It was a great platform to promote our products on the internet.  We never took the time to send you a thank you note, until now.  Our thoughts go out to all 56 … Continue reading →
