North Main Blood Drive

Blood Drive
The Blood Connection is returning to our office in North Main Saturday, June 1.  Drop by our family dental practice between 9:30am – 1:30pm to donate.  The bloodmobile will park at the corner of North Main Street and Stone Avenue.

Everyone who donates receives a $20 Chick-fil-A gift card.  You can also enjoy free coffee, tea and hot chocolate from the Vita Nova traveling cafe and enter to win prizes from our dental studio.

Why Blood Drives Are Important
As a family dental practice, we are focused on the overall health of our patients.  As a cancer survivor, Dr. Andy Bullard received multiple blood and platelet transfusions during treatment.  He is aware of the positive impact blood donation has on our community.

Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood.  That is an average of 36,000 units of red blood cells per day.  On average, patients with traumatic injuries need 45 units of blood.  Blood can’t be manufactured, it must come from donors.  The Blood Connection says one donation can save up to three lives.

How Blood Drives Work
The Blood Connection staff can help put you at ease and answer your questions about the blood drive.  Allow about 45 minutes to sign in, begin your appointment and complete the process.  The actual donation time only takes 10 – 15 minutes.  You must weigh at least 110 pounds and be at least 17 years old.  With parental consent, 16-year-olds can donate.

Regular Cleanings and Checkups Can Save You $

Cleanings and Checkups

Let me tell you how important it is to visit your dentist at least twice a year for cleanings and checkups.

You can catch problems earlier or prevent them from happening at all, with regular visits.  Once cavities reach a certain stage, they’ll only continue to grow, and you can end up with a root canal or having to pull a tooth.

The hard buildup around your teeth by the gum line won’t go away on its own.  Brushing and flossing won’t remove it, but your family dentist can knock it out with special instruments.

Checkup, cleaning

That buildup is called tartar, and it can lead to decay and gum disease.  Take a look at the before and after pictures from a recent cleaning in Dr. Bullard’s office:

After

According to the American Dental Association, almost half of adults over 30 have some form of gum disease.  You simply do not want to miss checkups.  Your problem areas won’t go away, and they will cost you more money down the road.  Imagine the bill for a routine cleaning and checkup compared to a root canal and crown.

Even if you don’t have any symptoms, you can still have dental health problems.  Small cavities and gum disease often go unnoticed if you’re not feeling any pain.

Use Your Dental Benefits

If you have dental benefits, you are already paying to see your dentist twice a year, so you may as well schedule an appointment, and show up!

Dental cleanings and checkups are part of your overall health and wellness.  Studies show there is a link between a healthy mouth and a healthy heart.  Dental checkups fit right in with exercise and eating well to keep your body in top shape.

Fresher Breath and Whiter Teeth

You can have whiter teeth and fresher breath.  At your dental cleanings, your hygienist or dentist will remove stains from your teeth that are impossible to brush away at home.  A professional cleaning will also remove bacteria that cause bad breath.  Your smile is often the first thing others notice about you.  Don’t you just love how your teeth feel after a cleaning?  Doesn’t it make the day seem brighter?
