Whiten Your Smile & Help A Child!
This year we are kicking off our 12th annual Smiles For Life campaign! Thanks to the generosity of our patients, so far over the past decade we have raised $223, 579 for locally-based children’s charities.
This year at the Crown Council Convention, Boger Dental was recognized for being one of the top producing offices for the campaign by being honored into the Smiles for Life Hall of Fame! Thank YOU, our patients, for your tireless generosity and support for this great cause.
That money has provided:
How Can YOU Join In The Fun?
Let us help you whiten your teeth and together we can brighten the lives of children in need! Here’s how it works:
- Call our office at (763) 546-7707 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment.
- At the appointment we will make custom whitening trays to use with with Opalescence whitening products.
- Pay $200 (half the original cost) as a tax-deductible donation to Smiles for Life.
- One week later, pick up your custom-made trays.
- Get ready to smile…both to show off your bright, healthy smile and because you just did something to help others!
- Then tell your friends!

We are honored and excited to have been voted for the fourth year in a row as Best of Plymouth in the dental category! Thank you, Plymouth! Here’s what the Plymouth Magazine write up said:
Best Dental Clinic: Boger Dental
“The teeth of patients aren’t the only things shining at Boger Dental—the award wall is filling up fast. This is the fourth year the family-owned business has won Best Dental Clinic in Plymouth. The differentiator? A history of excellence: “My father established our tradition of excellence here at Boger Dental 40 years ago, and it is our mission to maintain that high level of integrity through all that we do here,” says Chad Boger, DDS. “We hire the best, and we invest in the latest technology, so that we can provide comprehensive dental care all under one roof.” The clinic offers everything from general dentistry and orthodontics to dental implants, cosmetic and restorative dentistry, and is the leading practice in the Minneapolis area for neuromuscular dentistry.”

There is a lot of talk about radiation — from the sun, minerals in the soil, household appliances, and also dental x-rays. It is wise to be cautious about the amount of radiation that you are exposed to, so fortunately you take ease in that the dose of radiation you are exposed to during the taking of dental x-rays is extremely small, especially with our digital x-ray technology. Our hygienist, Michelle Sensat, has done some interesting research about dental x-rays.
- The first dental x-ray images were made in the same year they were discovered—1895.
- The huge, radiation-scattering dental x-ray machines of decades ago have evolved into smaller, safer, faster, and better equipment.
- Newer digital radiography (sensor-based systems) requires less than 10 percent of the radiation of the traditional film-based units.
- Digital images can be readily shared among practitioners in the dental and medical fields, making patient treatment more efficient.
- Radiation safety stresses the ALARA principle—keep dose exposures to a patient As Low As Reasonably Achievable.
- There is radiation in the air we breathe, in stone, bricks and cement, in luminous watch dials, our color TV sets, and computer screens. Total lifetime exposure from all sources should be considered.
- Cooking with natural gas and flying cross-country expose you to more radioactive materials than a dental x-ray.
- Dental x-rays help diagnose early-stage cavities, gum diseases, infections, and some types of tumors.
- Boger Dental uses ELDDR—Extremely Low-Dose Digital Radiography
- Finally, to equal the amount of radiation the average citizen picks up from naturally-occurring background sources each year, a dental professional would have to take 950 digital x-rays.
If you have any questions about digital dental x-rays or any of the technology that we have in our office, we welcome you to contact us. We would be happy to tell you more!
