TRY GAMES, AUDIOBOOKS, AND PODCASTS TO PASS THE TIME Road Trips Don’t Have to Be Painful

Summer is right around the corner, which means you’ll soon pile the whole family into the car, ready to brave the road for a vacation. Everyone knows that riding in the car for hours can be torture. But with a little creativity, you can turn the worst part of a long trip into a fun event. Pack a Travel Game When the excitement of the family vacation starts to wear off, keep the peace and entertain your kids with a travel game. Many board game manufacturers offer travel-sized versions that are easy to pack and play in the car. Before your next road trip, consider purchasing digital Yahtzee, which packs all the fun of the classic game without the dice, or IQ Fit, a logic game with over 100 challenges. Both games cost around $10 and can provide hours of entertainment. Include the Whole Family Once the travel games no longer pique anyone’s interest, try an activity that can be fun for the whole family: a traditional road trip game. If you have a car full of storytellers, try “Fortunately, Unfortunately.” The rules are simple. The first person starts by saying, “fortunately,” and mentioning something good about the road

trip or the destination. The next person (moving clockwise) then follows by saying something “unfortunate” about the previous person’s statement. Take turns with every passenger in the car. If someone stumbles, they get a strike; three strikes and you’re out. The last passenger standing wins. Play an Audiobook or Podcast We get it. Sometimes passengers don’t want to play games. Occasionally, they’d rather relax or take a nap. However, your listening material doesn’t have to be limited to Dad’s favorite music. Instead, consider listening to a family-friendly audiobook or podcast, which can make the longest and most boring parts of your trip an entertaining or educational experience. Almost any popular book is available in audio form, but it can be hard to find an enjoyable podcast. “Transistor” is a science-focused podcast that explores subjects kids and adults will find fascinating. Or if you’re looking for something fictional, try “Storynory,” in which the narrator tells fairy tales and legends from all over the globe.

You’re in Control With Custom Trays

When it comes to whitening, there are options to fit your schedule and your budget.

Custom bleaching trays let you to whiten from the comfort of your home and customize how white you’d like your teeth to be. Our dentists often recommend this option because they’re a simple and efficient way to whiten your teeth while minimizing complications. Our professional whitening gel is safer and more effective than over-the- counter kits. For this option, we take impressions of your teeth to make fitted, custom trays. You can take the trays home and wear them for an hour a day using our professional whitening gel. Once your teeth become the shade of white you like, you can simply stop whitening. Your results are easily customizable depending on your preference. In addition to at-home whitening, our dentists offer in-office bleaching. This method can give you results in as little as 45 minutes, so it’s ideal for your upcoming wedding or other special events. We also offer an appointment-free way to whiten at home with to-go trays. Simply pick up a set of 10 trays and whitening gel from our office to use at home. This is the most cost-effective way to whiten.

Don’t forget: We opened up the Smile White for Life program! For a special price, your whitening needs can be met — for life. By simply keeping your regular appointments, we’ll provide you with all the tools you need for at-home whitening. Give our office a call today to find out more!
