Happy (Almost) March!
Your Monthly Dental Appointment Reminder
(Psssssst...we are now booking into May!)
March is nearly booked! If you need to be seen soon, give us a call at 734-677-2167 or send us a message via our website so we can get you in as soon as scheduling permits. You can also be added to our waitlist if no appointments are available.
March 20th is World Oral Health Day
World Oral Health Day is celebrated every year on March 20th. It is an international day to celebrate the benefits of a healthy mouth and to promote worldwide awareness of the issues around oral health and the importance of oral hygiene to looking after everyone old and young. You can read more about #WOHD20 on their website.
Happy Belated Birthday, Roxanne!
Wishing a very happy BELATED birthday to our amazing dental assistant, Roxanne! We hope you had an amazing birthday month and appreciate everything you do.
Bamboo Toothbrushes Have Arrived
Due to popular demand, we have ordered (and now received!) a limited number of sustainable bamboo toothbrushes.
If you are interested in purchasing a bamboo toothbrush, they are available for $3 each (far less than any retailer, including Amazon). Give us a call to reserve yours at 734-677-2156.
Going forward, we will not be making calls or sending emails for appointment reminders when you add your appointment to your phone calendar while at the office. This change is due to patient feedback. Thank you for your understanding!
Happy Birthday to Dr. Kotre, Sherry and Colleen!
Three of our favorite people turn another year more awesome this month. We hope you each have an amazing month, and a very Happy Birthday to you all!
Have a marvelous March, and Happy St. Patrick's Day to all!
Dr. Shannon Norman-Kotre
It may be hard to believe, but February marks the 1-year anniversary of Dr. Nick joining our practice. We are so happy she made the leap!
If you haven't yet met Dr. Nick, you can read all about her on our website. Those of you who already see her know that she shares the same philosophy of gentle, conservative dental care that Dr. Kotre does -- it's one of the things that has made her such a great fit for our team!
Happy Anniversary, Dr. Nick!
Your Monthly Dental Appointment Reminder
(Psssssst...we are now booking into April!)
February is almost entirely booked; in fact, even March is filling up! If you need to be seen soon, give us a call at 734-677-2167 or send us a message via our website so we can get you in as soon as scheduling permits. You can also be added to our waitlist if no appointments are available.
February is National Children's Dental Health Month
National Children's Dental Health Month raises awareness about the importance of oral health to children, adults, and caregivers. Attitudes and habits established at an early age are critical in maintaining good oral health throughout life.
Please be sure to schedule your child’s next routine dental cleaning if you haven't already done so. Remember, we start seeing children at the age of 1, slowing (and gently!) introducing them to the dental hygiene experience. We start with a chair ride and getting them familiar with the environment, doctors, and staff, making it a fun experience for them.
Questions? Give us a call at 734-677-2156 and we will be happy to help!

Nardin Park UMC Clothing and Toy Drive Still Going Strong
Thank you to everyone who donated to our charity drive for Nardin Park UMC. This year's event has been amazing and the first pick-up happened last month. However, we are still collecting new and gently-used clothing and toys through the end of January, so there is still time to donate if you had planned to do so. In particular, they would greatly appreciate any winter clothing, including coats, hats, scarves and gloves, as well as any other clothing and toy donations.
For those who don't know, Nardin Park assists some of the very poorest residents of the City of Detroit all year long, but with a special emphasis on the holiday season. Thank you again to our patient family -- your donations truly make the holiday season much brighter for many Detroit families!
Please Leave Time for Traffic and Weather
As winter rolls on, and construction continues (as it always seems to) straight through into the spring and summer, please consider leaving a few minutes early for your next appointment. Five minutes or so can make a big difference in keeping our schedule running on-time. Thank you for your assistance!
Dr. Sarah's Hours
Starting in February, Dr. Sarah will be adding Tuesday appointments to her schedule from 10 a.m.to 7 p.m.
She is enjoying getting to know our patient family and we are so happy to have her with us!
A Whiter, Brighter New Year!
Kick-off the new year with a beautiful white smile when you take advantage of this month's special on Opalescence GO! whitening -- just $29.75 for a 4-pack!
Don't wait; supplies are limited to what we have in stock. Give us a call to reserve yours at 734-677-2156.
Insurance Plan Changes
It's the time of year when most of our patients' health insurance plans change. In fact, it's likely that your insurance switched over as of January 1st. If you've had a change in your insurance, at your next appointment, please bring your new card with you and present it at check-in so we can make it part of your patient record.
Additionally, this is the time to make sure you use your FSA benefits! If you had dental work recommended to you in 2019, give us a call to get scheduled to use those FSA dollars before the April deadline at 734-677-2156
Best wishes for a wonderful 2020 to you all!
