Patient Appreciation Event All You Need to Know About Our Biggest Event Ever

The big day is coming up fast! That’s right — it’s almost time for Your Oviedo Dentist’s Fourth Annual Patient Appreciation Event! Everyone at the office can’t wait to mingle with our patients and enjoy fantastic food and music. As we get closer to the big day, we’ve had a few questions from our patients about the event — questions you may have as well. This month, I wanted to answer those questions so you know exactly what to expect. Question: What is this patient appreciation event all about? Answer: In short, we want to give something back to you, our wonderful patients. You are a part of our family, and we appreciate you and the trust you’ve put in us. This is our chance to do something exciting and to say thank you. It’s a day all about you! Plus, it’s a chance for us to spend a little time with you outside of the office. Question: When and where is the patient appreciation event? Answer: It’s set for Jan. 27, 2018. It will be held at Oviedo on the Park at 1 p.m. Oviedo on the Park is a new community amenity featuring a cultural center and an amphitheater. Our event will be at the new amphitheater. Here’s another interesting fact: Oviedo on the Park is near our new location that will be opening in spring of this year! .

Question: What were the past patient events like? Answer: If you missed out on the last three events, they were held at the Oviedo Bowling Center. Each year, we had a blast spending time with patients while enjoying pizza, drinks, a raffle, and, of course, bowling. While there won’t be any bowling this year, we have plenty of fun and entertainment lined up, including live jazz music performed by the St. Louis Big Band. In addition, one of Dr. Colon’s favorite barbecue restaurants, 4 Rivers Smokehouse, will be catering the event! Question: Will there be a raffle this year? Answer: You better believe it! In the past, we’ve given away cruises and thousands of dollars’ worth of prizes. This year, you can expect even more amazing prizes, as well as the announcement of our 2018 patient contest! (HINT: The prize for this contest is valued over $20,000!) Every member of our team is excited for the grand unveiling. Once again, everyone at the office is excited for the 27th. We can’t wait to see you then! –Dr. Lopez

Dental Bits

Have you ever thought about getting porcelain veneers? Many patients consider veneers when they want to improve their smiles. Maybe they have chipped or missing teeth, difficult stains and blemishes, or simply desire a more consistent look across their smile. There are many reasons to pursue custom veneers. The Porcelain Smile Are Porcelain Veneers Right for You?

before moving forward with veneers. At the same time, you will also need to have enough tooth enamel for the veneers to be affixed to. Do you have crooked teeth? If your teeth are crooked or misaligned, then there may be a chance you won’t qualify for veneers, or your procedure will have to be delayed. More often than not, this affects those with more severe tooth issues. Why? When veneers are installed, it’s not uncommon for part of a tooth to be removed to ensure the veneer fits perfectly. The more out of alignment a tooth is, the more tooth material may need to be removed, leading to pain or sensitivity. The straighter your teeth, the easier the process.

If you’re considering veneers, it’s important to keep in mind that porcelain veneers aren’t for everybody. There are a few questions you can ask yourself and your dentist to determine your next steps.

What are your dental habits? When you grind your teeth, bite your fingernails, or chew on ice, you may be damaging your teeth. Those same activities can also damage veneers. Think of veneers as an investment — one you will want to keep around for years to come.

Are your teeth and gums healthy? If they are, great! Veneers benefit from healthy, strong teeth and gums. If you do have tooth or gum disease, then chances are you will need to treat any current dental issues

PG 4 The Time Is Right for Nicaragua


Escape to After the hectic holiday season, many of us feel like we need another vacation just to unwind. Luckily, January and February are two of the best months to travel. Flight prices plummet and crowds thin out after the Christmas rush. If you’re looking to escape the drearywinter weather, there’s no better place to visit this season than Nicaragua, the “Central American country that has it all,” as Condé Nast Traveler puts it. Whether you’re looking to explore the rainforests surrounding the Río San Juan or get lost in the quirky-yet-beautiful architecture of Granada, there’s something for everyone in this tropical wonderland. One must-see destination is the Cerro Negro volcano. Just a baby at 150 years old, it’s one of the most active volcanoes in the region. It only takes about an hour to scale its smoking, black gravel surface, and the verdant forests surrounding the peak are a sight to behold. Adventurous travelers can board down the side, reaching ludicrous speeds as they teeter and try not to fall. In fact, it’s almost impossible to travel anywhere in the countrywithout seeing an “I boarded a volcano” T-shirt. If relaxing on a pearlescent beach is more your speed, take a short boat trip out to the Corn Islands. There, you can amble around the small towns bordering the shockingly blue Pacific, visit a number of

laid-back seafood restaurants, get scuba certified for a fraction of the price anywhere else in the world, or just read your book as you swing in a hammock by the waves. You can also visit the gorgeous, alabaster Our Lady of Grace Cathedral in “new” Léon. The biggest church in all of Central America, this unique Baroque and

neoclassicist structure was built in 1814. Visitors can climb onto its roof (as long as they don’t wear shoes) and bask in the viewof surrounding volcanoes (including Cerro Negro).

If you’re planning on heading to Nicaragua, it’s best to do it soon. Neighbor Costa Rica often overflows with tourists, and instead of wading through the crowds there, many travelers are catching on to what Nicaragua has to offer.
