Thanks to your continued patronage, as well as our amazing community, we brought on five new team members, including the esteemed Dr. Ann Delman! She jumped right in and made herself at home with the team and with our patients. We count ourselves fortunate that she is part of our growing team. We’re also thankful for your kind words. So many of you have been raving about us all year, which meant we saw a lot of new patients in our office. More and more people just had to see what we were all about. In fact, we saw so many new patients that we ended up breaking ground on Your Oviedo Dentist’s new home. Work is well under way at the new location, and we are excited to open it to the

We all know that person who secretly has all their holiday decor at arm’s reach in November, just waiting for the green light to start decorating. The candles are ready to be lit, their holiday playlists have been meticulously assembled, and their lights are already strung and turned on before Thanksgiving leftovers are gone. In contrast, there’s that person who dreads the holidays and gets dragged into December kicking and screaming. Theywalk into a Christmassy place with a gas mask for the candles, ear plugs for the music, and sunglasses to block out the lights. The true magic of the season is the ability for both of these types of people to come together in a spirit of giving to help one another in a time of need. This is why every December brings us our favorite day of the year — the daywe get to host Dentistry FromThe Heart and serve our community. Thanks to the 30-plus dental professionals who dedicated their time to giving back, we were able to serve hundreds of patients in need of dental care. Whether with a filling, cleaning, or even an extraction, Our Favorite Day of the Year Grinch or Not, We Can All Rally Behind Service

we were fortunate enough to have these experts volunteer their services free of charge. We love this day so much because of how important it is to us to use our skills to serve others. Many of our participants wouldn’t have had access to proper dental services without this event, and so it was truly a gift to give it to them. In addition to working with Dentistry FromThe Heart, our team members donated their pay on this day to the Hope Foundation, and every donation was generously matched by Dr. Lopez. This year, we were able to donate over $2,000 to the Hope Foundation, and we performed over $15,000 in dental services! We are extremely excited to host this opportunity next year when we are in our new location and have room to serve even more patients. Whether you’re a Grinch or a Christmas lover, we think that this is something everyone can rally behind.

PG 4 Books to Inspire You in the New Year

for 2018 sharing everyday space adventures to letting us in on the physical toll space takes on the body, Kelly helps us understandwhat it’s really like to be in the great unknown. If you’re looking for inspiration in the newyear, reading about Kelly’s harrowing year of challenges will surely give you the courage to overcome your own.

Your Reading List Can you believe 2017 is almost over? Elections, weather, and just about everything on the news left us feeling uncertain, andwe could all use a dose of optimism in the newyear. Here are some books that celebrate the triumph of the human spirit, even in the most challenging situations.

Finding Forrest When an actor tries their hand at other creative mediums, the results are varied, but the buzz about TomHanks’ newbook, “Uncommon Type,” has been largely positive. His literary debut is a collection of 17 short stories, all featuring, in some way, a typewriter. At their heart, though, the stories are about human relationships, and Hanks manages to inject his most memorable character’s charm into his writing. As NPR reviewer Heller

IfYou Loved the ‘Divergent’ Series Veronica Roth brings us a new sci-fi/fantasy series with “Carve the Mark.” Roth whisks us to a planet where each person has a “currentgift,” a special power they develop. But for heroes Cyra and Akos, currentgifts are more of a curse. The two must work to overcome their distinctly different pasts and unite to save their world — or die trying.

WhenYou Need a Hero School is tough, and no one knows it better than George Heffley. In installment 12 of the “Diary of aWimpy Kid” series, titled “The Getaway,” Jeff Kinney takes us on a tropical vacation with the Heffleys as they attempt to escape the cold weather and frenzy of the holidays. But the island isn’t the relaxing sanctuary it’s supposed to be. The suggested reading age is 8–12 years old, but this book would make an excellent listen for the whole family during a road trip of your own.

McAlpin puts it, “In a worldwhere the news is unrelentingly bleak and much fiction tends toward the dystopian, postapocalyptic, dark, or edgy, this is a gentler, sweeter kind of storytelling than we’ve come to expect.” Overcome a HarrowingYear Few have done more to earn the title of modern-day hero than Scott Kelly, who has served as a military fighter pilot, an engineer, an astronaut, and now, an author. “Endurance” is Kelly’s memoir, and it recounts the year he spent on the International Space Station.
