Currently, we are still closed for non-essential procedures and appointments under Governor Walz’s Executive Order. Keep watching our website and Facebook page as we continue to publish updates as new information becomes available.
We also hope that all our patients and those within our community are practicing self-care at this stressful time. Dental health should be included in your self-care. Even though you cannot come into our office at this time for regular checkups, there are many other things you can be doing for your oral health.
One of the most important things you can do right now is to keep up your routine. Continue to brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste for two minutes each, and floss once a day.
If you are not already using a mouthwash – we suggest starting. Rinsing with a non-alcohol-based mouthwash twice a day can help reduce the buildup of plaque.
Eating a well-balanced diet is not only good for your overall physical health, but also for your oral health! Focus on eating a variety of nutrient dense foods, and limit added sugars. Foods high in calcium and protein like cheese and yogurt (without added sugars!) helps to strengthen bones and teeth. Leafy greens also help to promote the health of your teeth’s enamel and can help treat gum disease.
It is truly most important to keep up on oral hygiene during times when you cannot get in to see a dentist. Keep watching for our updates, we look forward to reopening for you!
Speaking of when we reopen – exciting changes are taking place for Miller Hill Dental to make your dental visits even more convenient!
We are happy to announce that a new dentist will be joining our team in July. Nate Kotter, DDS is a Duluth native and a graduate of the Marquette School of Dentistry. We look forward to working with Dr. Kotter.
Within the last year we have also been joined by Dr. Hammer and his team at Port City Dental. This opportunity allows Miller Hill Dental patients the flexibility to visit any one of three locations – Miller Hill Dental’s location on the hill or either of Port City Dental’s locations on London Road or Downtown Duluth in the Medical Arts building.
We are anticipating the time when we are able to reopen and help with your dental care. Until then, stay healthy and safe!
