Beaumont Family Dentistry August 2019

OUR HAMBURG TEAM THE EXTENSIVE TRAINING AND DEDICATION OF OUR STAFF Tracie Stone works with Kristin Lester and Ashley Mams at Beaumont Family Dentistry’s Hamburg location as part of the reliable and trusted restorative staff. Their work reflects the philosophy of the goals set by each of our locations and teams, which is to provide one-of-a-kind service to our patients and ensure optimal oral and overall health. The restorative staff has over 50 years of experience combined, and it’s this knowledge that gives them the ability to assist our doctors in any way they can, as well as advocate for each patient’s well-being. However, dentistry is an ever-evolving field that requires persistence and dedication, two elements our team prides themselves on. “About once a week, our whole team gets together and goes through a comprehensive training with our doctors,” Tracie says. This training ensures each of our teams can focus on patients’ oral and overall health. “Our aim is to evaluate what the patients’ needs are. We’re looking at the overall picture for our patients and not just a quick fix. As part of the staff here, all of us want to make sure that we can do it all because we are truly here to assist the doctors with anything they need. Kristin, Ashley, and I have been trained to perform implants, prosthetics, cosmetics, orthodontics, and braces on a professional level, just to name a few services and treatments.” Everyone here at Beaumont Family Dentistry understands the importance of staying up to date with the latest treatments that allow our dentists and restorative staff to provide the best care for our patients. Every patient requires a unique approach to treatment, and with continued education, we can keep providing exactly what they need.

Between vacations, bonfires, and sporting tournaments, your children’s sleep schedule probably went on break when they did this summer. With school fast approaching, it’s vital to get your kids back on a proper sleep schedule. In fact, according to the National Sleep Foundation, getting enough sleep can significantly improve a child’s growth and cognitive function. But getting a restful night’s sleep is easier said than done when kids have had almost complete freedom for three months. Try these tips to get your kids snoozing through August and prepared for school. START EARLY AND GO SLOWLY When practicing this tip, think of the old adage: “It takes 21 days to break a habit.” If your kids have been going to bed late this summer, set a time when they must go to bed, but don’t make it too far off the time they have been regularly hitting the hay. If they shuffle off to bed around 10 p.m., push their bedtime to 9:45 p.m., and then push it back to 9:30 p.m. one week later. Slowly work your way back to an appropriate time, and bedtime will be easier when school starts. MAKE IT EASY Though the days may be getting shorter, it’s still relatively light out at night, making it nearly impossible for your kids to doze off when they should. Sleep experts recommend creating a sleeping space that mimics a cave: dark, cool, and quiet. This means sunlight shouldn’t sneak into the room, and the home should be a quiet zone after bedtime. No one wants to sleep while everyone else is having fun, so it’s important that everyone in the home is quiet at bedtime. JUST RELAX This is a rule your family should follow year-round, not just when you want to reestablish a routine. At a certain time each night, begin the nightly wind-down. For example, at 8 p.m. shut off your screens, put on pajamas, and engage in a relaxing activity, like reading a book or doing some yoga. Signaling to your body and your family that it’s time for bed will help your kiddos, and you, fall asleep at an appropriate time.
