Boger Dental has always been a dental practice that exceeds patient expectations. Part of exceeding those expectations is continuing our dental education routinely. Our dental hygiene team became certified in Laser Assisted Periodontal Therapy back in 2005. We went through a rigorous didactic and clinical course in order to begin using this advanced technology to treat gingivitis and periodontal disease.
The statistics on bulimia are startling. About one and a half million people in the United States suffer from bulimia. About 13% of all high school girls and 4% of all college-aged women suffer from bulimia.
We would like to thank all of our wonderful patients who contributed toward our efforts of raising $21,700 this year for our Smiles for Life promotion! We couldn't be happier with this generous amount to present to two organizations: Smile Network International, founder Kim Valentini. Smile Network International funds surgical missions and provides necessary supplies needed to repair birth defects, with a focus on cleft lips, cleft palates and other conditions requiring surgical intervention such as burns, tumors or other genetic defects. And to, The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile – a dental clinic on wheels – provides dental care to under-served children in the 14-county Twin Cities metropolitan area. The money you generously donated goes directly to these two wonderful organizations. Lorelle Eng, one of our hygienists, worked with The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile and knows firsthand how thankful this organization is for our help each year. We have exceeded our goal every year with Smile Network International and we cannot thank you all enough for your help. We will plan to post pictures of our team presenting the $21,7000 check to Kim Valentini very soon for you all to see.
We had the privilege to attend a fundraising event May 17, 2013 for Teammates for Kids Foundation. This event raised money for Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota Child Life Zone. Their St. Paul hospital will begin breaking ground for this fabulous facility in October 2013. This will be the ninth facility built in the United States.
The Smile Network hosted a fabulous gala in April 2013. Many from our team were able to attend this event at ARIA in Minneapolis. Boger Dental has been a part of The Smile Network for many years. This organization does a wonderful job serving underprivileged children around the world with cleft lip/cleft palate surgical correction. At Boger Dental each spring we donate 100% of our teeth whitening procedures through our Smiles for Life promotion that begins in March and goes through June. If you have an interest in learning more about whitening your teeth, please call #763-546-7707 or email [email protected]

Tonight we had the opportunity to serve as a team again at the Ronald McDonald House in Minneapolis. The menu of the evening was a taco bar with watermelon, lemonade and cookies for dessert. We had the privilege to serving several families but, as is always true, we were the ones that benefitted the most from the evening. It is a valuable experience to work together as a team outside of our daily work routines together. And,if you can do something that can help another, that is really a cool thing.
Yesterday was our beloved Mariann's birthday. You surely recognize Mariann by her smile and graceful style. She is appreciated by many for her cheery, optimistic personality, how she is always willing to lend a hand, and her sincere concern for each patient who comes through our doors and entrusts us with their dental care. Please help us celebrate by posting your reply on our Boger Dental Facebook page to this question:
