Inquiring Minds Want to Know

What an incredible month April has been here in the Pacific Northwest.  We’re hit an all time high record for rain, which I didn’t think possible.  Closer to home, this blog has been honored not once but three times!  I have had the privilege to be a  guest blogger for two other sites, and then was selected as one of seven dental blogs worth reading by Cloud Dentistry.  All in one month!  I’ve been busy writing, just not on here. (Which will soon be rectified!)

Molar System

Molar System There’s a new blog out there called Molar System.  On it, the lovely host reviews dental products and their effectiveness from a consumer’s perspective.  Molar System has no ties to dentistry, and so can give you an honest appraisal of oral care products, some of which are very unique!  I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to be the first guest blogger, answering questions on products and procedures.  Please join me there as I discuss brushing, flossing, and many other great topics the Molar System had for me!  It was just posted last week.  Follow Molar System on Instagram!

Ages and Stages

Next, I had the opportunity to work with a seasoned blogger, nationally renowned speaker, author, and teacher- Diane (Di) Bahr.  She’s a speech language pathologist who’s on a mission to help children develop proper speech, mouth, and feeding development.  I had the honor of being featured on her most recent Q & A.  This post discusses my thoughts on taking baby to the dentist, what to expect and what questions to ask your doctor.  The question I probably get most from parents is: “When should Baby see the dentist?” Then they follow up with, “Why?!? Baby has no teeth yet!”  I have lots of good info for you there.   (It’s rough when I’m limited to 650 words- there’s always so much more information to share with you!  My director’s cut of that interview will be posted on my blog in the near future.) This post went live this weekend.

Anyone with young children or grandchildren will greatly benefit from Di and her wealth of knowledge, as well as all her incredible guest contributors.  Please consider subscribing to her site, you’ll learn lots and lots!  Di’s passion is infectious.

Cloud Dentistry

My blog was one of seven dental blogs selected to be featured on Cloud Dentistry’s website page. How fun and humbling to be part of this fabulous group of bloggers, and to be considered at the top of the dental blogging world!  Cloud Dentistry is a new resource tool for finding temporary or permanent dental workers, as well as many other web-based tools and skills. They’re the future of dental employment agencies!


So, my faithful readers, it’s been a crazy, fun, humbling and fantastic ride blogging this month.  What an honor to contribute to other blogs and share my perspectives on oral wellness.  I greatly appreciate my fellow bloggers for asking, and you, my readers for reading and making this such a successful blog!  A mind once stretched can never regain its original shape!

Since it was another rainy Pacific NW day, I  had the opportunity to write another blog post as well so that’ll be posted later this week rather than the usual week or two between posts.  I’m so ready for Spring and warm, drier weather but at least I made the best of it and got to write!

‘Til next time,
keep smiling,
