Music at East Springs

If money grew on trees and everyone loved teeth.

I love teeth. I'm not sure how true that is because if I loved them so much I wouldn't have taken so many of them out over the years, right? Well not so much as they say. Some teeth are just too costly to repair, some are non restorable and some are even removed on young people for orthodontics. A few folks even have extra ones, you be surprised how many folks have few or more than the most often seen 32.

But what I don't like about teeth is when people have to make financial decisions while making dental decisions. Sometimes this is due to neglect and others its just a lack of education or even bad luck. But money doesn't grow on trees and nothing is truly free. Often I hear "well I didn't have insurance for a long time" but if asked many of these folks with dental problems have nice clothes and cars and the latest Apple or samsung mobile device with its data plan and a nice protective case. In a lot of cases a monthly cell phone bill is more than the recommended twice a year cleaning.

Even if dental care or medical care were free people would probably still go to bed after a tasty Coca-cola or as it could also be described carmel colored, acidic, high fructose corn syrup beverage. Many of these carmel soda pops can be used to clean the build up off of batteries, yet many are surprised they are bad for their teeth. So even if money grew on trees many of the people that don't visit the dentist wouldn't have great teeth because they don't love them. But I'm sure they would have nice cars, clothes and cell phones or Ipads or whatever was cool to have in their social network and socio-economic area. We've been playing a wide mix of music these days but it seems Dave Matthews has snuck back into rotation and also up front the hygiene area and reception seems to have added in some country music to its mix: a little more Toby, Kenny and Sugarland seems to be floating around the office. I've been stuck on the last two Eric Church albums.

That's why they call them growing pains.

I haven't written a lot this summer because I have been very busy. What began as helping another local dentist out has ended with having an additional location at which I will be practicing dentistry. We have also welcomed a new Dr. to our Chamberlain Lane office who will also be working at the Eastern Parkway office. Dr. Kassandra Kulb has joined our staff and I am pleased to say she is one of the brightest and hardest working dentists I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with in private practice.

So I've been busy working at both offices this summer while Dr. Kulb became a new mother. We look forward to seeing her family grow as our dental family grows as well. I'm glad to have her back because in the interim I've been working nine and ten hour days taking care of both offices. She is here today at the office doing her normal, professional, confident version of dentistry that I love.

In other news its NFL season now. So Fantasy Football is in full swing and I'm happy I think I picked up a couple of good players in Eli Manning(oops not last night) and Cam Newton. As usual I also got My Steelers for Defense. This week is going to be a tough one because Tony Romo has already hit me for 35.

Today we are flashing back to last year listening to The Bird and the Bee cover Hall and Oates.
