Principles of Whole Health

PRINCIPLES FOR CARE FOR WHOLE HEALTH
Everything is connected.
Just as the body is all connected, so are physical and mental health
The body inherently knows how to heal, but sometimes it needs some help. Sometimes we hinder it.
The body is always adapting – for good or bad.
Source of pain may not be the cause.
We all have potential to grow at any age. Potential does decrease with age.
Airway trumps all.
Bodies are made to move.
Food is medicine.
Health and beauty are one and the same thing.
Doing something to improve airway/health is better than nothing, and earlier is better.
Respect sleep.
Respect death.
Be good to your body and it will be good to you.
Mind has incredible power
Keep an open mind, never stop learning, and taking necessary proactive measures when necessary will combine to provide the best possible results.

Halloween Candy Buy Back 2021

Halloween Candy Buy Back 2021

IT’S TIME FOR COUNTDOWN TO…

HALLOWEEN CANDY BUYBACK AND DONATION EVENT AT SERENITY DENTAL STUDIO!!!!

Serenity Dental Studio will hold its 7th annual Halloween Candy Buy Back this year on Sunday, November 7, 2021, from 1 – 4 pm. Donate your candy and enjoy some popcorn at the celebration! Items for US troops overseas will also be gratefully accepted. Candy and other donations can also be turned in during office hours from Nov 1-15, 2021. Candy and other items will be sent to US troops overseas with Packages4Patriots.
Turn in your Halloween candy for cash! You will get $1 per pound! The first Halloween Candy Buy Back at Serenity Dental was held in 2015. That year, 50.25 pounds of candy were collected and sent to the troops. It has grown every year. In 2018, 684.25 pounds were collected, and in 2019 a whopping 1,274.25 lbs. were collected and sent to the troops overseas!!! Last year, in spite of restrictions, 834.25 pounds of candy were donated! 167 other items including toiletries, handmade cards, popcorn, coffee, etc., were also donated and sent to those serving overseas and greatly appreciated.
How much is 684.25 pounds of candy? It fills up a Mazda Sport sedan with only enough room for a skinny driver! The goal for this year is to return to 2019 level: 1300 lbs. of candy plus 200 other items for the troops!
Why does Serenity Dental do the Halloween Candy Buy Back?
We want to get candy out of the mouths of kids to prevent decay, and at the same time, we want to support the troops overseas. It can be a great teaching moment for kids, and help the adults get rid of temptations in their house!

Autumn Dream Tree

Autumn Dream Tree

If you have visited our dental office over the summer, you would have seen our summer dream tree. The dream tree is a place where you can right down your dreams and put them out into the universe and find support in others sharing their dreams. We recently took the summer dreams off the dream tree and put them on the window for others to see.  We’ve now decorated the dream tree for the fall season. We welcome you to place your dreams here this fall. We also plan to get a “Grateful Pumpkin” for people to write what they are grateful for. We can’t wait to see you soon!
