ENJOY YOUR FAMILY TIME By Taking a Break From Your Phone

STAY FOCUSED Stay Focused is like Siempo, but there are some significant differences. You can set times to access certain apps and put the most distracting ones on lock. Stay Focused also has a “strict mode” that prevents you from uninstalling it, so be sure to think carefully before activating the lockdown because you won’t have access to those specific apps until the timer runs out. FOREST In the time that Forest takes control of your device for a set time limit, the app starts growing a tree. Once the tree is fully grown, your time is up, and it joins the other trees that were grown during other breaks. If you pick up your phone and try to access an app, Forest will send you a notification asking you if you want to kill your baby tree by giving up. Who says guilt isn’t a good motivator?

Setting some time aside to be with family is important, but it can be difficult when everyone is always on their cellphones. Constant cellphone use has become a global problem, and the habit is hard to break because we rely on mobile devices heavily for work, school, and keeping in contact with friends and family. Luckily, there are plenty of apps that can reduce how often you’re on your phone and minimize distractions. SIEMPO After you install Siempo on your phone, it will ask which apps are likely to distract you. Once you select them, the app will move those apps away from the home screen and place the important ones, such as the messaging, contacts, email, and calendar apps, on the first screen. You can also designate times for specific apps to be used throughout the day.

Shame-Free Dentistry Why the Best Dental Professionals Will Never Make You Feel Inadequate It’s normal to feel the jitters before you head to the dentist. This nervousness is nearly universal, especially for new patients. But if there’s one feeling we don’t want you to ever worry about before making your way into our office, it’s shame. All too often, patients put off going to the dentist because they feel guilty about the condition of their teeth. Maybe they’re worried about being subjected to another lecture on proper flossing or have forgotten to brush for so many days that they feel embarrassed having somebody examine their gums. For someone who is so self-conscious about their smile that they hide it day in and day out, it can be terrifying to imagine a trained professional taking a long, hard look at their teeth. But make no mistake: Dentists are there to help, not humiliate. Any dental professional worth their salt will never, ever make you feel ashamed about your smile. After all, it’s in the best interest of doctor and patient to keep you as comfortable and happy as possible during your visit. Dentists know that the surest way to keep patients from coming through their doors is to make them feel guilty and

inadequate. That’s why those long-winded lectures from down high are largely a thing of the past in the dental field and have been replaced by cooperation and compassion. And if you think your teeth are somehow the worst the dentist will have ever seen, think again. Dentists see hundreds of patients, each with their own struggles and concerns, and many of their conditions are more serious than you can imagine. They’re not about to wag their fingers and judge you. Instead, they’ll do everything they can to restore your confidence and guide you down a proper treatment path to long-term dental health.

Shame is far too common among dental patients, but it doesn’t have to be. Come visit our office and experience what positive, guilt-free dentistry can do for you!
