    Floss Card Dilemma
    To Floss at Work or Not

    Escape the Scrape

    Proper flossing removes the soft sticky bacterial plaque before it mineralizes into tarter or calculus. Your dental hygienist will be the first to know once you “step up” the flossing. Brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing properly minimally once a day will limit the scrape, scrape, scrape of your preventative dental re-care visits.

    Unraveling a Life Line

    Bacterial build up in the mouth leads to inflammation. Oral inflammation has been associated with systemic disease. A healthy mouth promotes a health body. Heart disease, stroke, diabetes certain forms of cancer and Alzheimer’s disease have been linked to oral health issues. Proper flossing in combination with tooth-brushing might just be a life line.

    Floss Fund. Take it to the Bank.

    Regularly scheduled preventative dental visits and proper flossing and brushing lead to financial savings. Caring for small issues before they become big problems and preventative health care at home brushing twice a day and flossing minimally once a day make good “cents!”

    Healthy Match.

    Tooth-brushing by itself is not enough. Flossing can not stand alone. Proper brushing at least twice a day and proper flossing minimally once a day leave you with the beautiful healthy smile that both you and your dentist love.

    No Kisses from your Misses or Anyone for that Matter.

    Bad breath is a deal breaker. The bacteria associated with bad breath hides between the teeth. If not removed with proper brushing and flossing you are sure to miss the kiss.

    Senior Lourdes University volleyball player and Springfield native, Keyonna Gregory, was recently selected to participate in the Team AIST America- Dominican Republic TourĀ  in June of 2015. This tour will be made up of elite collegiate athletes that coaches specially invite to represent the USA and compete internationally.

    Keyonna originally began her athletic career as a basketball player, but during her sophomore year of high school decided to give volleyball a try and has never looked back. “I just love the game so much and I can’t wait to see where my future takes me,” she said. This past season, Keyonna was selected to the American Volleyball Coaches Association All-Region Team as well as First-Team All-Conference.

    Growing up in Northwest Ohio, Keyonna loves being close to home and her family, but she is looking forward to spreading her wings. “This is an opportunity of a lifetime and I am so excited,” she said.

    Keyonna was quick to tell us that she will be home a few times a year and plans to visit Dr. Frankel for her routine cleanings and exams. “Dr. Frankel has been the only dentist I have ever known,” she said. “I trust him with my teeth and smile. He really is the best.”

    We would like to wish Keyonna and the entire Lourdes University Volleyball team the best of luck as they prepare for their upcoming season. Go Gray Wolves!

    If you would like to make a small donation to Keyonna as she prepares to take her skills to the next level and represent USA, please contact our Toledo office and we will give you further details. On behalf of Keyonna, “Thank You in advance.”
