"LIKE US" ON FACEBOOK
Ninety percent of our new patients come find our office through the old tried and true method of "word of mouth". However, times are definitely changing. Due to the advancement of social media, newspaper readership is dramatically down and telephone books have been antiquated. More and more patients are finding their needed services through social media. We felt now is the time to jump on that social media train.
Our Facebook page will appear a lot like a Chatter page in this website. However, our communication with you through Facebook will be more weekly than monthly. We hope you truly enjoy it. Provide us a "Like" on your mobile device if you enjoy our weekly updates!
YES WE HAVE A SWEET TOOTH
We in the dental field spend each and every day promoting oral health. Did you ever wonder during one of your recalls whether or not we like a good candy bar or dessert now and then? Well the answer is "you bet we do"! Just remember to rinse with water, brush and floss so that a dessert now and then won't cause a tooth problem. Above is a batch of blueberry scones from our angelic patient, Emma Robeson.
Dr. Larry Rakowsky came to Ottsville at our present location in 1984. By 1990, he bought the building and renovated. Well, it's that time again when our office needs a new facelift. Be patient with us as we proceed. We will attempt to make the renovation and facelift as little of a bother on our patients as we possibly can. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

TIDY TOOTH TIPS
Its that time of year again. Time to pack those lunch boxes. But did you know
that some healthy snacks are healthier than others?
Cheese- It’s been found that cheese raises the ph. in your mouth and lowers the risk of tooth decay. Cheese also contains calcium and protein, nutrients that strengthen tooth enamel.
Yogurt- The probiotics found in yogurt, also benefits your teeth because the good bacteria crowds out the bad bacteria,that cause cavities.
Apples and Carrots- Both are full of fiber and increase saliva production in your mouth, which reduces your risk of cavities. Apple slices or a few raw carrots at the end of a meal isn’t the same as brushing your teeth but they do help to scrape away any food particles.
Almonds- They are a great source of calcium and protein while being low in sugar. A handful of almonds are an easy and non-messy treat while benefiting your teeth. Here’s to a safe and healthy new school year. And remember your diet makes a big difference when it comes to a healthy smile.
