Archives for the month of: September, 2012

While there’s still a couple of months left in 2012, we know your schedules will fill up with autumn activities, holiday preparations and the like. We want to remind you to make the most of your dental insurance for the year.

Some plans vary, but when you pay your insurance┬ápremiums, you pay into preventive coverage of 100% – including two cleanings / exams per year. If you haven’t had both these visits, please schedule one now.

You also have a maximum benefit amount, and if you have treatment remaining, you may choose to do it with these 2012 funds, since they do NOT roll over. If you don’t use them, that money is lost and 2013 starts a new year with new maximums.

We want you to get what you pay for, and take care of your dental health needs, so help us help you by calling today!


How often have you wished for a day at the spa?

We can’t give you the full day experience, but we can help make your dental cleaning a little more enjoyable with our mini-spa treatments.

Complimentary with your cleaning, you can choose from a number of options to make your visit more pleasant. From a paraffin dip for your hands to a soothing lavender neck massage, we want you to feel pampered!

Stacy, our hygienist, makes sure you are comfortable, warm and relaxed for your cleaning, by offering these additional perks. You can choose the flavor of your polishing paste, have a warm or cool eye compress and drift off into a peaceful state.

Sometimes you open the mail and read a letter from a patient with a line like this:

“I recently visited your office as a new patient and found the environment to be both inviting and a positive experience for patients and staff.”

Wow, thanks C.O. We really appreciated your kind words and since we do our best to be warm and friendly, we’re glad to know it’s noticed!

It’s that time of year again, when you walk in the grocery store and are bombarded by pumpkins, candy corn and skeletons.

We know, we know, you’re not ready! But, we’re trying to get ready.

Every year kids collect more candy than they know what to do with. We know many parents aren’t keen on the idea of all that sugar, so we’re here to help.

This year, we’re buying your kids Halloween Candy back!

On November 1, 2012 from 3pm – 7pm, every kid under 12 is welcome to bring their candy and swap it for $1 per pound (up to 5 lbs per child). The goodies will be collected and shipped to Operation Gratitude, which makes care packages for our troops overseas.

Please feel free to RSVP to our event on Facebook to receive an extra gift at the swap!

Many people are fans of the Discovery show, but here at Salt Lake Dental, we have our own version of myth busters! Whether it’s a myth brought by a patient, or sharing an article, we try to face those concerns, questions and stories head on.

Every Wednesday on our Facebook page, we’ll give you some information about your dental care and oral health, so please follow along and feel free to submit your own myth either on our page, or via email.

It’s always difficult after a long weekend to get the week started. Especially so after a weekend that signifies the unofficial ending of summer.

However, we’re not heading into fall just yet. We want to make the most of the summer we have left.

So, to usher September in with a bang, we’re running a referral special! Refer your friends, colleagues and family (separate households) and receive a gift once they’ve come in for their appointment.

Everyone needs a great dentist, and we want to be the dentist you rave about, so please, tell your loved ones about us and know you’re appreciated in the process.
