October is an opportunity to share our story to so hopefully help your loved ones.

October is very special for all of us at Creating Smiles Dental

 

October is National Dental Hygiene Month

Our amazing dental hygienists are very prevention-minded performing various health screenings at every visit. We know that prevention and early intervention are so important. That is why we want to take a moment to share two more October causes so our experiences can help you and your families. 

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Our dental assistant, Dena, just lost her mom after a long valiant battle with breast cancer. She does not want cancer to have the last word. She was a fighter and wants us to continue her fight. This is still very fresh for us and to honor this amazing woman, we want to share some tips with you. Please help the women in your life follow the American Cancer Society’s recommendations: 

Keep in mind that not smoking, limiting alcohol and maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle can also help reduce chances of breast cancer. 

October is National Liver Cancer Awareness Month

Jesseca is one of our dental hygienists and her dad, Bob Cates, is currently fighting like a champ with his liver cancer. He discovered this cancer after getting into a pretty bad car accident. In the hospital while getting checked out, his doctors saw it on his CT scan. In learning more about this cancer, we would like to share that if you or someone you love has any of the following symptoms, help the person talk to his/her doctor so the cause can be treated. (Having one or more of the following symptoms does not necessarily mean liver cancer but they are still serious and early detection can save lives.)

Possible Signs and Symptoms of Liver Cancer:

We are a family practice and want to keep our families and yours healthy and happy.

We are blown away by your support as we returned to full dentistry. It looks a little different around here since you are now greeted with smiling eyes instead of our usual bright toothy smiles. We have been wearing masks and thank you for

It's still Summer! With these record high temperatures outside, there’s no doubt it’s summer here in Florida. We decided to bring back our Summer of Sealants deal. This will go through the last day of summer.
