Patient: “Doc, I don’t know how you do it. It must be a challenge working on patients like me, working in a small, dark area with my tongue in the way.”

So your little one has teeth? Congratulations!
February is Dental Health Month, and here is our advice on how to care for your child’s teeth:
Laser dentistry in Dental Hygiene- Dubuque, Iowa
On Friday, September 28th, Talia and Melissa, two of our hygienists, attended a continuing education course in Ankeny, Iowa. The course was about two of the instruments that our hygienists use everyday: Ultrasonics and Lasers. Talia and Melissa wanted to take full advantage of learning new information to share with our patients.

Research on effects of snoring
A recent study of over 200 children found that those who snore were more likely to have behavioral problems including aggression and hyperactivity. Researches surveyed the mothers of these children over several years to monitor snoring and behavior patterns.

Using the latest technology in our Dubuque dental office
Our office has been dedicated to the latest technology in dental hygiene since Dr. Ted Murray opened the doors to his Dubuque dental office in 1978. In other words, we have always wanted to help people have the healthiest teeth and gums possible.
Gingivitis and Periodontal Disease
Wherever we travel, live or work, Americans rely on the good-old-fashioned smile to “talk” to people. We smile to say hello, goodbye, to excuse ourselves and even when we’re embarrassed.
We also look to the smile to get cues about how others are feeling, from a frown to indicate unhappiness to a wide grin signaling happiness or humor. Perhaps it’s because generally, we’re more emotive, and it surfaces the loudest through our mouths.

Dubuque Cosmetic Dentistry
With the advent of social media and mobile internet devices, today’s dental patients have a wealth of information at their fingertips regarding cosmetic dentistry. This makes them more informed and more knowledgeable about what treatment their desire for their own cosmetic concerns.
