Thank you to all of our Parkview Dental patients who supported our local food shelves for the upcoming Holiday season. Canned goods donated by Parkview patients were donated to the Hutchinson and Glencoe food shelves. Thank you for your generosity.
Parkview Dental is having their Annual Halloween Candy Buy Back.
We will collect unopened candy starting

Candy collected will be sent to the troops serving our country.
If your kids are like most, they’re going to come home from trick-or-treating with lots and lots of candy. And who doesn’t love Halloween candy? But we all know that the sugary candies at Halloween bring tooth decay in their wake. By following these simple steps, your family can have all the fun of Halloween without harming kids’ teeth in the process!
- Teach your kids the importance of moderation with sweets. They don’t need to gorge themselves on Halloween candy all night.
- Make sure your children are brushing their teeth at least twice a day.
- Remember to give your children fluoridated mouthwash every evening.
- Having extra dental flossers around the house is a great way to help kids remember to floss.
- Remember that sticky, chewy candies can cause the most tooth decay! Limit candies like jelly beans, taffy, candy corn and caramels.
- When it comes to gum: choose sugar free! Not only do sugar-free chewing gums neutralize the effects of sugary candy – they help combat cavity-causing plaque!
Moderation and good oral hygiene practices are key in helping your kids have a fun and healthy Halloween. By teaching your children good oral hygiene, Halloween can be a fun and worry-free holiday!
Here are some back to school tips for dental health:
- brush and floss two times a day~morning and bedtime
- brush for a total of two minutes~tooth timers work great
- choose beverages like milk and water which help strengthen teeth
- choose healthy snacks for your lunch box~pack fruits and veggies
Parkview Dental wishes all of our students a wonderful and safe 2012 school year!
Protect your child’s winning smile by using a protective mouthguard!
Youth football season is just around the corner, and we want to make sure that your children are fully prepared and protected with mouth guards. Without a mouth guard, your child is more easily susceptible to an injury to the lips, tongue, and soft tissue of the mouth. The protective guard can prevent chipped or broken teeth, nerve damage to the tooth, and even tooth loss!
All in all, mouth guards limit the risk of mouth-related injuries during contact sports so that your kids can have a fun and safe time doing what they love! As your dentist, we want to provide the best mouth guard fit possible for your kids and keep them happy!
Come into our office or call us today 320-587-2726 to learn more about how youth mouth guards can protect your children’s smile!
In February 2012, Parkview Dental initiated a new program entitled “Parkview Perks.” This program was developed in an effort to provide our patients with no insurance a benefit to assist them in accessing dental care.
This is notification that Parkview Dental will be eliminating this program effective September 30, 2012 due to lack of participation. All program participants prior to October 1, 2012 will be honored the full year contract. If you have any questions about this, please contact us at 320-587-2726.
