are excited to support the Montclair Public Schools in the 2016 MFEE Amazing FundRacer!
Don't be fooled by their minty fresh sparkly smiles. Stronger than fluoride, faster than gum disease, more powerful than plaque, they are racing to WIN... or at least be the first ousted team to Egans.
Thank you for donating to support our team, MFEE, and the Montclair Public Schools!
This fall, Dr Joseph has enjoyed visiting many local preschools and elementary schools in support of October’s National Dental Hygiene Month.
During her visits Dr. Joseph reviews the importance of good oral hygiene with our community’s youngest residents. Her interactive discussion familiarizes children with what to expect in a typical check up appointment at the dentist and the importance of good oral health. The students are able to see many of the instruments that their dentist or hygienist will be using at their appointment as the presentation demonstrates these activities utilizing our loyal puppet, Mr. Chops. In office teeth cleaning, as well as how to have a proper tooth brushing at home, are reviewed along with the benefit of a healthy diet. The dangerous potential of “Sugar Bugs” to harm healthy teeth is discussed along with how damage can be avoided with careful brushing and flossing.
At the end of the visit, students are given a special goody bag with a toothbrush, floss and toothpaste. Our goal is to educate children of all ages about optimal oral health, and demystify what happens at a typical dental appointment. Hopefully, this fun presentation is just the start of a greater conversation in each child’s home about the importance of good oral health. Ferguson Dental Associates is committed to community dental education and promoting healthy dental habits. If you would like Dr. Joseph or another staff member of Ferguson Dental Associates to visit your child’s school, please contact our office at 973-744-3181.
Got too much leftover Halloween Candy? Please consider donating your extra Halloween Candy for a Cause!
As partners in your child’s dental health, the staff at Ferguson Dental Associates would like to help get the extra Halloween candy out of your house and away from your child’s teeth! This year, instead of throwing it away, consider putting the treats to good use by participating in Ferguson Dental’s first Halloween Candy for a Cause.
For every child that drops off their leftover candy, Ferguson Dental will donate $10 to the Human Needs Food Pantry. Money donated to the Food Pantry is used to provide healthy food to many individuals and families in need in our community. Ferguson Dental will donate up to $2000, so please encourage your children and friends to stop by.
The collected candy will be donated to Operation Gratitude, which will ship it to our troops overseas.
Bags can be dropped off at Ferguson Dental Associates at 177 Gordonhurst Avenue during regular office hours through November 9th. All donations are welcome, you do not need to be a patient to participate.
