Think Pink – Part 2

My PINK Inspiration!

I am a runner, and my husband and I have been training to run the Marine Corp Marathon at the end of October.  The training has been long, gruelling, and to be perfectly honest, awful at times.  However, I am fortunate, and very grateful to be surrounded by a large group of men and women all working to achieve the same goal.

Our Saturdays are always the same, we wake up early, we run, we eat, and then we sleep.  This past Saturday was no exception, we ran 22 very long, and hilly miles.  As the run got longer, our legs got heavier, and the conversation became harder, I started to notice all the PINK.  It was everywhere, and it was exactly the inspiration I needed to finish the last 3 miles.

 As I finished my last few miles, I thought of all the women that have struggled with Breast Cancer and I realized that my pains were really very insignificant.  Thanks for the inspiration, and remember, this month is all about “THINKING PINK!”

Think Pink!

In my profession I see all sorts of interesting details on a daily basis, and not much shocks me.  However, last week, I was caught a bit off guard, and experienced a professional “WOW” moment!  Carter Grice, one of my 7th grade patients, came in for a routine preventative appointment, and like most teenagers, he has braces.  He has always had a beautiful smile, and does an exceptional job with his oral hygiene.  So, when I entered the hygiene room to do my routine exam, his PINK smile was not what I expected to see.  In fact, I  was immediately blinded by his PINK orthodontic bands!

I was astonished!  So naturally, I asked why he chose PINK orthodontic bands, and he quickly responded, “It’s for Breast Cancer.  I was inspired by my coach, Scott Bell, whose wife has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer, and a family friend, who has also suffered from breast cancer.”  It was then, that I experienced my “WOW” moment.  I thought to myself, how cool is that?  How awesome that Carter, a 7th grade young man, took the step, or better yet leap of faith, to support a cause so huge!  Through such a simple act, he became an instant PINK billboard for breast cancer; it was brilliant!  My hat goes off to him and any young person who is out there making themselves an advocate!   “WOW!”

Digitized……

Digital X-rays

Technology is amazing, and each day I reminded of how far the field of dentistry has come in this area.   My office has used digital x-rays for the past eight years, and like most things, the time had come for an upgrade and/or replacement.   I spent many painful hours reviewing products, and reading numerous articles to help determine which new digital system would be the best fit for our office.

If you are unfamiliar with digital radiography, it is a form of x-ray imaging, where digital x-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film.  Advantages include, but are not limited to, time efficiency, immediate image preview (no waiting), the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images, and much less radiation exposure to the patient.

Digitally enhanced x-ray for diagnostics.

Well, our new x-ray system was installed this week, and thus far we love it.  Once we were up and running, I was immediately reminded of how quickly technology changes, and how important it is for us to stay current.   While my previous digital system was clear and fast, our new system is like lightening, and phenomenally diagnostic!   Pictures truly do tell a thousand words, and in my case, they tell me  the current health of your mouth.

In closing, it is our goal to strive to provide the best quality, and most up to date dental treatment for all our patients.
