Summer in Wisconsin is beeeautiful! The sun is shining, the sky is blue and the temperature is delightful. You can’t help but smile—unless, of course, you don’t want others to see the condition of your teeth. In that case, even the most glorious day might not get a smile. But it doesn’t have to be that way. With porcelain veneers, Brookfield, WI, residents can have a smile that is as beautiful as the day!

We are so blessed to have such a growing practice. A large part of our growth is because we have dedicated patients like you who commit to regular dental visits and to referring your friends and family to do the same. We are so thankful for each one of you and are glad to provide service to the Brookfield and surrounding communities. We have recently remodeled our office, added a few more staff members and extended our business hours in order to make it easier for you to schedule appointments with us.
Although some of you love coming to the dentist, we are well aware that there are many of you who have some anxieties about dental work. Our top priority is to provide quality care to all of our patients so they can have a healthy, long lasting smile. Second to quality care, we want you to have a comfortable, anxiety free visits with us.
We have many ways to take your mind off of the worries of your visit and make the time fly by fast! In our reception area, we have a beverage station with water and coffee and tea for you to enjoy. Be sure you enter our drawing for free custom whitening trays when you check in! Once you get to your treatment room, you can watch a TV right above your head during your appointment. If you’ve had a longer procedure, we might even treat you to a smoothie or frozen custard shake to help with inflammation and calm a grumbling tummy. And recently, we have even caught a few Pokemon characters hiding around the office! What better ways to make for a more fun visit?
Thank you for being such wonderful patients and allowing us to be your dental team.

If flossing hasn’t been a regular part of your oral care routine, half the battle is just remembering to do it. So, here are our favorite ways to help you remember:
Set an alarm on your smart phone or tablet. Set it for the same time every day and make it a time that is convenient to you.
Write a post it note and stick it on your bathroom mirror or next to your bed.
Keep plastic flosser’s in your car and floss in your driveway before you leave or in the parking lot at work. Just be sure to throw them away in the garbage when you’re done. We hate littering!

If you have been to see us recently, you’ve noticed some big changes (and maybe a little dust). Our office is expanding! We are adding patient treatment rooms in order to make more appointment times available to our patients. Our reception area will be larger as well to accommodate our growing patient base. We will be adding some awesome things to the office to make your time there more enjoyable. We know many of our patients dread their dental visits, so it is our priority to provide quality dental work while making you comfortable and at ease. We will be posting photos of our progress along the way, and of course the final product! Be sure to follow us on facebook to see all of the latest updates and exciting announcements too. We are scheduled to finish the remodel project in mid to late summer. We are still seeing patients during this transition.

A few times during the year, the doctors plan an event where the staff can get together and forget about work for a while. On Friday, May 6th we worked hard all day at the office moving the front desk to it’s new temporary location. The assistants and hygienists moved some of the treatment rooms around in the back, getting a few steps closer to the end of the remodeling project. After a day of hard work, the staff headed to the Ronald McDonald house to make and serve snacks to the families staying there. The temporary residence enjoyed walking tacos, antipasti kabobs, strawberry shortcake pops and veggie tarts.
The Ronald McDonald house is a temporary housing facility for families to stay in when they have loved ones receiving treatment at Children’s Hospital as well as surrounding hospitals. The newly expanded facility can house up to 70 families per night and runs on donations provided by McDonald’s, the community and the families who stay there. If a family is unable to pay, they will never be turned away. In addition to housing, they also provide therapy services which include an adorable pup named McNugget who brings smiles and cuddles to those staying in the Ronald McDonald house. We were truly thankful to be able to tour this facility and provide some yummy snacks to those staying there.

Spring has officially arrived and we want to make sure YOU are up to date on your cleanings! Seeing your dental hygienist and dentist at least twice a year is the best way to prevent and detect cavities and gum disease at an early stage. We help you come up with an individualized routine for your home care so that we can keep your mouth happy and healthy. Most of our patients schedule their next routine visit up to 6 months in advance, so be sure to think ahead in order to get a flexible appointment time. We are adding office hours soon to make it even more convenient! So, call our friendly front desk staff here at Elmbrook to schedule soon.
New to our office? No worries! We are accepting new patients as well and would love to meet you.
