"Veteran's Day was once again our favorite day of dentistry of the year. These men and women are so gracious and so humble about their service. We wouldn't have any of what we do if it weren't for their willingness to serve us and our country. One of my personal favorite parts of this day is those that come for the first time and their shock that we really are not charging them anything for what we are doing. We saw over 40 patients and did over 170 services and had so much fun doing it. With so much craziness in the world today it was nice to enjoy our won little sanctuary where all was well and everyone was working together to pay back these heroes"

This November 3rd, we will be honoring our Veterans with a day of free dentistry. For the past four years, this has been our favorite day. The event has given us the opportunity to connect with veterans in our community and personally thank them for their service.

  

In the past, we had done other community events with free dentistry, where people lined up were seen on a first-come-first serve basis. It didn't leave us with the feeling that we had truly given back. Throughout the year we looked for opportunities to serve and felt very impressed that the ones that we needed to serve were the ones who had made it possible for us to live in this country, to enjoy the freedoms that we do, to have the opportunity to live the American Dream, because they are apart of the honorable group who gave their lives for the American Dream.

Instead of waiting in line for free dentistry, Veterans call our office and schedule an appointment. On the day of the event, veterans would join us at our office wearing their colors, share their stories of their service and connect with each other. Before or after they receive their cleaning and exam, they are invited to join us for lunch outside our office between 11-1.

The whole team looks forward to the event every year, Trista, one of our team members and hygienist shares: “Veterans Day is by far my favorite day to work. It is such a pleasure to give back to those who have served for our country. I especially love seeing our veteran patients and their appreciation for our day of Dentistry for them! This day brings big smiles to everyone!”

 

Dr. Brent Parrott shares his thoughts and memories.
“Of all the days of the year I serve patients, Veteran's Day is by far my favorite. I am so grateful for all those who currently serve or have served in the past. Without Veterans and their families' sacrifices, we wouldn't have the privileges, comforts, freedoms, or opportunities we experience each day. Veterans are also the most gracious and grateful group of people we work with. When the idea of doing a day of free dentistry for our heroes came up, we had many options of how to run the clinic. We could organize the program like other free clinics on a first come first served basis and treat as many patients as possible. In reflecting, we knew there was a better way to extend our Veterans the respect and dignity they so worthily deserved. By scheduling individual appointments with time set aside for each veteran, we are able to spend time getting to know each patient individually. We hope to show our appreciation for their willingness to serve us by serving them one by one.”

If you, a friend or a family member would benefit from this event, please call us today at 533-8204 to schedule an appointment for a free exam and cleaning. We’d love to see you and get to know you.

INVISALIGN ISN’T THE PERFECT SOLUTION FOR EVERYONE, BUT if you’re a good candidate, there are LOTS of reasons for choosing Invisalign—and they’re not all simply about going metal-free!

Clear, removable Invisalign trays are a less invasive orthodontic treatment method. With Invisalign technology, your teeth can be straightened without causing inconveniences to your daily life.

Benefits You Probably Didn’t Expect

The most obvious difference between Invisalign treatment and braces is their appearance, but there’s more to it than that. For example...
Less office visits. We’ll see you only once every 4 to 6 weeks.
Invisalign trays can sometimes double as whitening trays or protective mouth gear for sports.
The removable trays allow you to brush and floss normally, which results in better oral health during treatment.
You can enjoy the foods you choose, without the dietary restrictions of braces.
The smooth plastic trays are more comfortable, so you won’t deal with the irritation metal brackets sometimes cause.

Straight Teeth Provide More Than A Great Look

Aesthetics aside, having straight teeth is important for a number of reasons. Straight teeth are easier to clean and floss. They also guard against uneven wear, and painful TMD problems. Straighter teeth allow for more efficient chewing and enhance food digestion. Straight teeth can even cause better pronunciation and speech!

Is Invisalign Is Right For You?


Schedule an appointment with us! We’d love to see what we can do to improve and preserve your beautiful smile. Thanks in advance for your trust. We hope to see you soon!

Last Friday, we celebrated the new year. Oroville and Paradise Gentle Dentistry teams met at Gold Country Casino for a dinner, a great game and some stories.

The game was a hoot! Everyone had a ticket (including team members + 1s) with a number. Dr. Parrott would call out that number and that person could pick out a beautifully wrapped gift from a giant pile of gifts and open it in front of everyone OR steal a gift another team member had opened. All the gifts were great. There were $50 gas cards, gift cards to fancy restaurants, a nights stay in Reno, Disney and Marvel waffle makers, griddles, etc.

One member got the biggest wrapped present, and inside she found a bunch of 5x* Swag.

*5x is a program that Oroville and Paradise Gentle Dentistry is a part of which teaches team members how to strengthen their individual role in their work, but also in every other part of their life. It also teaches how to create a community within the office and helps remind everyone to be 5 X (times) greater than they are. The program has really helped the office grow. 

NO ONE wanted to steal Katie's gift. At the end of the gift stealing game, Dr. Parrott and Alexis presented Katie with the biggest gift of the night! One week stay at a Caribbean resort! They explained that out of all the gifts, they wanted to help the team understand that the 5x swag represented something that they really love and treasure. 5x has helped them accomplish so much more.

Dinner was great. Gold Country Casino had a buffet with salad, rolls, chicken, beef, vegetables and we also had a chocolate fountain!

Last year, the offices focused on growth. Paradise Gentle Dentistry had a major office renovation, and Oroville Gentle Dentistry focused on increasing numbers. This year the focus is changing to strengthening and growing the team.

This party was a great way to start the year.

We are always looking forward to Veteran's day. It's our tradition to offer Free Dental Exams and Cleanings to Veterans on November 11. 

Last year, we had several members of the community who are veterans reserved their appointment. On November 11th, they arrived proudly wearing their colors and uniforms. They got their teeth cleaned and had their teeth examined by the doctor. Outside the office we invited people in the community to display their classic cars and our team members served hot dogs and apple pie.
