December 2018
Hamilton Dental Designs


2018 is coming to a close, and we hope that you are able to celebrate the holidays with family and friends.  At HDD, we are so thankful for another year full of tremendous growth and look forward to even more in 2019.  Take a moment to read through our news and remember to follow us on social media for live updates throughout the month.



     Don't forget to drop off your unwanted cold weather items to HDD!  We have teamed up with Project Keep Warm again this year to help collect coats, hats, socks, gloves, and blankets for many who are without this season.  The collection box is located in the HDD reception area and will remain until December 8th. If you don't have any items to donate, consider making a monetary donation to the cause.   Also, hang onto any worn items when Spring comes around, as HDD will be participating in this drive annually.  Thank you for supporting this wonderful effort!


IN 2019

     As you consider your insurance coverage (or lack thereof) for the new year, remember to explore our Designs Club option.  This program includes two exams, two cleanings, two fluoride treatments, and x-rays for $269/year ($235/year for children).  Patients in the program also qualify for 15% off all dental services and special pricing on Zoom! whitening and products sold in the office.  Anyone is welcome to sign up, and Karen will be happy to answer any questions over the phone or at your next visit.



     If you're anything like the Gils, you're probably searching for winter fun the whole family can enjoy.  Look no further!  Here is a complete list of holiday activities in the Lehigh Valley for people of any age.  If you're more of a 'checklist' person, visit this post instead for a guide to making the most of all the area has to offer this holiday season.  Enjoy!



     Did you know a TIME magazine survey reported that 59% of Americans would rather have a dental appointment than sit next to someone on a cell phone?  Now, we think having a dental appointment at HDD is always something to look forward to, but we also know how most people feel about going to the dentist.  If you're one who dreads dental visits, the results of this study should have an even greater impact.  Another study in TIME this year found that people actually rated their enjoyment of a dining experience higher when their cell phones were put away versus when they were available on the table.  This holiday season, consider taking some time away from technology.  Whether it's just putting your phone away at dinner or scheduling some social time with your family without your smart device handy, fill your holiday season with quality face-to-face interactions.



    Appointment times are limited for treatment or checkups in 2018.  If you have pending treatment or are in need of your second cleaning for the year, call today to reserve a time before the year comes to a close.  Also, be aware of some holiday closings this month.  We will be closed on Tuesday, December 25th and will reopen at 12pm on Wednesday, December 26th.  Normal hours will resume on Thursday, December 27th.  
     In the new year, another operatory will be outfitted at HDD, and we will be adding a dental assistant to our team.  This is exciting news as it will increase both Dr. Gil and Dr. Julee's availability.  Stay tuned!



     Consider this our public service announcement for the month: always replace your toothbrush after having a cold or flu.  Bacteria can linger on the bristles of your toothbrush following any illness, prolonging your symptoms or spreading to anyone else's brush nearby.  Even without a bout of sickness, remember that the American Dental Association recommends replacing brushes every 3 to 4 months or sooner if the bristles are frayed.
