Happy Thanksgiving to all my patients, employees, family and friends. I am thankful for each and every one of you. Safe travels to all.


The Best Candy!

Not all candy is created equal when it comes to oral health. 

We have listed 5 of the best.

1. Sugar free gum

2. Peanut Butter cups

3. Powdered Candy

4. Chocolate

5. Sugar-free lollipops

Sugar-free products stimulate salliva production which, flushes away bacteria from teeth tongue and gums. P.B. cups, Powdered Candy, and Chocolate all melt quickly and aren't sticky. Enjoy Trick or Treating!

Boss's Day

Happy Boss's Day Dr. Hargis!

Say Cheese!

Say Cheese! The calcium and phosphorous found in cheese is healthy for your teeth - it reduces the PH level in plaque and re-mineralizes the enamel.
