Chicken Soup for the Patient’s Soul

After you undergo dental surgery or restorative treatment, you might be in a little bit of pain. In many cases, you will need to stick to eating soft or liquid foods. Soup is one of the best ways to warm your soul and keep your mouth comfortable after dental work!

That’s why we send patients home with soup when they undergo any type of treatment that may limit their eating briefly. Take a look:

Dr.Alrez children's health dental presentationOur very own Dr.Alrez took a visit to Middletown Montessori School this week to give a presentation to the Kindergarten class. February is Children’s Dental Health Month, so Dr.Alrez reminded the children how important it is to brush your teeth!

Did you know? Reports show that American students miss 51 million hours of school every year because of oral health problems. Make sure your kids are brushing their teeth for two minutes, twice a day and visiting a dentist every six months.


CHILDREN’S DENTAL HEALTH MONTH PRESENTATION AT MIDDLETOWN MONTESSORI SCHOOL

National Children’s Dental Health Month is during the month of February, and meant to raise awareness of oral health. We did our part by giving a dental health presentation at a local Delaware County school.

Why is this type of celebration and year round attention to children’s dental health important?¬† Despite the fact that it’s almost entirely preventable tooth decay is the most chronic disease in children.¬† More than 40% of children ages 2-11 have had a cavity in their primary (baby) teeth, and more than 2/3rd’s of 16-19 year olds have a cavity in their permanent teeth.


Give Kids a Smile

On December 6th, Dr. Alrez and the team worked with Give Kids a Smile, an organization that helps get free dental treatment for children who otherwise not have access to dental care. For more information about this wonderful organization visit their website or Facebook profile.

At Community Volunteers in Medicine in West Chester, Dr. Alrez and a number of other doctors provided 36 children ages 5-18 with $14,095 in care, free of charge.

As always, the team was more than happy to do anything in its power to promote proper dental health and we look forward to working with GKAS again in the future. We believe that every child deserves a healthy, beautiful smile!

In 2013, Alrez Family Dentistry participated in MOM-n-PA, a free dental clinic held in the Liacouras Center at Temple University. At this clinic, we provided free dental care to patients without access to dental insurance. The 249 dentists and 1,000 volunteers present saw 1,820 patients and  provided over $85,000 in free dental services. Dr. Alrez was overjoyed to work with such a wonderful organization.

Here are some photos from the event!
