Use It or Lose It!

Use It or Lose It!

It’s that time of year again! The end of the year is approaching and the holidays are sneaking up on us. Your benefits may also be coming to an end if your dental plan runs on a calendar year. Because of this, you will want to maximize your remaining benefits as they do not roll over into your next year’s benefits. You may also have a HSA or FSA plan that you have to use by a certain time (depending on the rules of your plan).

October is a great time to get scheduled for any needed dental appointments because some procedures require multiple appointments and the multiple appointments may require a certain amount of time between the two appointments. The holiday months fill up fast with children on winter break and students’ home from college, so thinking about scheduling now will be less stressful when trying to find a time that works. Please let us know if you have any questions regarding your insurance or your treatment and we would be more than happy to help you!

OSHA Training Seminar

OSHA Training Seminar

On Friday, September 6th our office attended the OSHA training seminar at Grace Church in Eden Prairie, MN. There were approximately 500 people attending the seminar from a number of different dental offices around the Twin Cities.

OSHA ensures that proper safety precautions are maintained for the work place. Some topics that were discussed included: bio-hazardous waste, fire and emergency safety, lab safety, and chemical safety. This seminar allowed our clinical staff some of their continuing education credits and was a fun team building experience.

As a gift, Ovation Orthodontics handed out funky socks and some other goodies. Our team at Tonka Smiles wore these socks today as a reminder to the motto “knock your socks off”.  Thank you for the fun reminder and for the fun day!

 

Dental Implants Missionary Trip 2019

Dental Implants Missionary Trip 2019

Dr. Phillips spent August 8th-August 10th, 2019 on a charity mission trip to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. During her time in the Dominican Republic, Dr. Phillips completed 30 hours of complex implant surgeries and placed 20 dental implants on patients. She is a fellow of the International Dental Implant Association and has been recognized for her charitable service.

Dr. Phillips says her time spent on this trip was a rewarding experience and that the patients were very gracious of the treatment. We are so proud of Dr. Phillips and her service and very thankful to have her as one of our dentists at Tonka Smiles.
