To all our patients and friends who celebrate Christmas -- well, Merry Christmas!!! This year Hanukkah just happens to fall on the same day. (Pretty cool.) :-) So, Happy Hanukkah to our Jewish friends -- and Peace on Earth to all! For any other religious observations during this holiday season, we also wish you good health, happiness and the love of family during this special time.

Flossing studies, as required by new USDA guidelines, could take 10 - 20 years to complete due to the nature of periodontal disease. Not to mention LOTS of funding. I think I'll just keep flossing.
