A big thank you to our Boger Dental team that supported the 3rd Annual Walk/Run for the Twin Cities. The event is sponsored by The Oral Cancer Foundation. Dr. Chad Boger, Dr. Joe Madden, Michelle Sensat and Natalie Christiensen graciously took time out of their weekend to support this wonderful cause. At Boger Dental, we are at the forefront of detecting oral cancer. We have the distinct advantage of seeing much more than a physician would be able to detect. Generally, we are seeing patients 2-4 times per year versus an annual physical visit to your physician. At each dental hygiene visit, both your Dentist and Dental Hygienist are completing a thorough oral cancer screening. If we do see a lesion that looks suspicious, we are working very closely with the referring oral surgeons to make sure that you are receiving the best care possible.
We are proud to announce the reintroduction of our Children's Brushing Reward Program at Boger Dental! Your children will be rewarded with a chance to win a prize each month by simply getting a report from the Dentist that they are cavity free. During each dental visit with their dental hygienist your child not only leaves with a clean teeth, but a chance to win an assortment of prizes, such as movie tickets, Skyzone passes, Pump It Up passes, or a new Sonicare toothbrush. If your child receives a good oral hygiene report from their Dental Hygienist and the Dentist does not find any cavities, they can enter their name into our monthly drawing! Children aged 3-12 years old are eligible for our program. If your child wins, we will notify the parents via phone or email of the fantastic news! We would love to share the winner's photo on our"Kid's Korner"display, so we would need to get permission from the parents to showcase their child's hard work. We welcome you to take a look at this display when you are in for you next visit to Boger Dental. Your children's oral health is our number one priority when they are at our dental office and we strongly believe each child deserves to be recognized for their above and beyond work at keeping their teeth and gums healthy and cavity free ! If you have any questions regarding our new program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We had the opportunity to have two of our charitable organizations come to our office last week to give them our donations for 2013. On the left is our dental team with Smile Network International, who are our international partner. On the right are our Doctors with Ronald McDonald House Charities, who are our local partner. As a team, we donated over $20,000 to these two wonderful partners. Our dental team worked very hard to gain these donations from our patients and for that we say thank you! Not only do our patients benefit with a brighter smile, they help underserved children benefit from a healthier smile. 100% of our patient donations go directly to the children who need dental care. Smile Network International organizes dental groups that travel around the world to correct children with cleft lip/palate deformities. Ronald McDonald Care Mobile travels locally to underserved children who would otherwise not receive any dental care. Boger Dental is honored to be a part of both these organizations and look forward to future opportunities that our dental team may be a involved in. Please take a look at what these organizations are doing to better the dental health of our underserved populations. www.rmhc-um.org and www.smilenetwork.org
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.
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@example.com
Touching Lives Through Smiles
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.
Michelle Sensat has been a valuable part of our Boger Dental hygiene team for eight years today!
