The Wonders of Technology

We have a fantastic and very high tech tool in our office that you should know about! It is a laser! This fantastic technology can help us treat so many dental issues.  It can be used to painlessly kill bacteria under the gums to help heal gingivitis and gum disease.  It can also be used to stop the pain of canker sores and rapidly heal and reduce the pain of oral cold sores.  We can even treat facial muscle pain caused by TMJ problems.  This amazing and multi-use tool is available any time you visit our office and treatments are quick and painless.  The best part is it is affordable!

A Letter from the Troops

We received this letter from one of the recipients of our candy and letters!  How great is this?

 

Dr. Richins and Staff,

I was the recipient of a large box of candy that you sent me out here at my
deployed location.  It meant a great deal to me and I thank you very much.
There are quite a few of us in our shop so I set the box out for everyone to
enjoy.  It has been going down fast.

The letters that you sent from the kids were awesome.  They were touching and
sometimes made us laugh; that’s good stuff.  We passed those around the shop
as well.

Thank you for your support and I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a
happy new year.

 

Thank you again to all of our patients and members of our community for contributing to this event!  We are truly blessed to live in the Treasure Valley! Boise, Meridian, Nampa, Kuna, & Eagle are filled with so many wonderful people!

Supporting our Troops Update

We had a wonderful turnout for our Support the Troops Event!

We mailed 9 packages to 9 different units weighing 9-10 pounds each.  Thanks to Treasure Valley Blue Star Mothers we were able to send them to service men and women from this area that are deployed.  We don’t know all their locations but we know the candy traveled all over the world.

We had kids from Amity Elementary School’s 1st grade and South Junior High School write letters to the troops.  We loved the response of the community!  This has been a great Event and we look forward to doing it again.  Thank you to everyone!

Do you hate to floss? Try an Oral Irrigator.

From our Hygienist:

Oral irrigators are a great way to make your gums healthier! Usually called waterpik, they use pressurized water to flush out harmful bacterial toxins and trapped food from under your gums and between your teeth.  Some studies have shown that irrigator use can even be more effective than flossing!  The best way to use an oral irrigator is after flossing and brushing every day, but even without flossing, you can do amazing work to improve your oral health and reduce the risk of gum disease.

One of the easiest ways I’ve found for people to add this to their daily routine is get an oral irrigator that attaches to your shower head.  They can be found online and are an inexpensive way to add this amazing tool to your personal care routine.
