With the new year upon us, new year’s resolutions are on everyone’s minds. Unfortunately, it is more common for people to forget about their resolutions before the end of January, rather than keep them for the entire year. I am Dr. Thomas Villani of Brighton Family Dental Group, and I have a challenge for you.

Be the exception to the new year’s resolution trend. Set a goal and stick to it. It won’t be as hard as you think because my team and I are here to help.

I want to encourage you to dedicate yourself to your dental health in 2011. This means different things for different people. If you can’t remember the last time you had a dental exam, it’s time to come in. I like to see my patients for a check-up every six months to make sure that their mouths are healthy and working properly. In addition to a dental cleaning, I will check for gum disease and scan for oral cancer at this check-up.

Regular dental exams and cleanings are crucial to having a healthy mouth, and are the best prevention against developing serious, long-term oral problems. In addition to caring for your mouth, I will care for your peace of mind, as well. I encourage you to ask questions and voice your concerns. My team and I want you to be as informed as possible so that you can make decisions that will impact your dental health and you’ll feel completely comfortable in our office.

If you already have a healthy mouth, maybe your dental goals are more cosmetic. If you have been wondering if porcelain veneers are the right solution for your chipped or stained smile, come in for a consultation. I will be happy to sit down and discuss your dental goals and possible treatment plans with you. I offer a variety of cosmetic procedures to my patients, so if falling in love with your smile is one of your new year’s resolutions, go ahead and schedule a consultation. I want to help you achieve your perfect smile.

Make a resolution that your mouth and overall health will thank you for. To get started, contact my office in Brighton at (617) 562-5210. I look forward to hearing from you!
