The old adage “an apple a day keeps the dentist away,” holds value, since our patient load in children and adolescents seems to spike with cavity issues every fall. We highly encourage parents, teachers, and childcare givers to take this opportunity to educate kids on the importance of healthy snacks over those laden with sugar and empty calories. While it may seem like a monumental task explaining to a 5 year old that the chocolate bar disguised as a princess is not as good for her as a banana, … Read the rest

INVISALIGN ISN’T THE PERFECT SOLUTION FOR EVERYONE, BUT if you’re a good candidate, there are LOTS of reasons for choosing Invisalign—and they’re not all simply about going metal-free!
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.

- 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.

What do I do with my 4 kids on a rainy day? I take them climbing, of course! My kids’ happy place is climbing our tree, but our grass is soggy and the tree is probably slippery, plus it starts raining again and in order to watch them, not only are they dirty, but I get dirty and muddy too. I needed a break. Vertical Ventures to the rescue!
We ALL had to sign waivers but then could roam free! There are 3 main areas besides the members only American Ninja Warrior type gym. A wall where every other “station” has a self pulley thingy for everyone and anyone. There’s
