Today marks Memorial Day, a time to remember and honor the soldiers of the United States who died fighting for our country. With summer approaching and the weather warming, traditionally Memorial Day is filled with community parades, barbecue cook-outs, fireworks, and other celebratory ceremonies. Many visit cemeteries or memorials and place flowers, wreaths, or other sentimental items at the sites to honor those who died in service. Also, some ceremonies involve raising the American Flag and lowering it to a half-staff position in remembrance of the soldiers, until raising it once again to its full height.
No matter how you choose to spend the day, we hope that you have a chance to remember those lost and spend time with family, friends, and loved ones.
What a magnificent Wellesley Wonderful Weekend for the year of 2015! Wellesley spirit filled the air this past weekend as we all celebrated the town’s traditional Veteran’s Day Parade, Picnic in the Park, and fireworks. Wellesley Dental Group is honored to have been co-sponsors for the fireworks, third year in a row. This year we had our Tooth Fairy aboard our parade float to greet all the smile ambassadors of Wellesley. She was also joined by Chuckles and families of volunteers who both stayed on the float to greet Wellesley residents and spectators and helped pass out oral hygiene supplies.
Alas, after the parade we were able to head over to Hunnewell Field to set up our tent and activities. At this year’s Picnic at the Park we had feather extensions, balloons, facepainting, and pictures with our friendly mascot Chuckles; all the kids were leaving our tent with smiles on their faces!
What a truly Wonderful Weekend it has been! We would like to once again extend our gratitude to the volunteers at the Wellesley Celebrations Committee for orchestrating the weekend festivities, and the Wellesley Police Department and Wellesley Fire Department for keeping everyone safe. Thank you for the Wonderful memories you have created for the community members!
P.S.: Special thank you to Joanna Bandte, her family, and all the Smile Ambassadors who joined us on the float this year!
STAY TUNED FOR MORE PICS!!

Whether your little one is signing up for little league or soccer camp, the season for sports is coming up. April marks National Facial Protection Month, which is a great time to remind children and adults about the importance of being safe by wearing a mouth guard during recreational and school sports this spring. There are quite a few items of equipment you’ll need to get, but never forget to protect those teeth! All contact sports require mouthguards, and for good reason. To read some more about why using a mouthpiece is so important, visit “Sports Mouthguards: Necessary Protection for Your Child.” After learning a bit about what type of mouthguard you’d be best off with, you need to ensure that you know the necessary upkeep. Washing your mouthguard is as essential as washing your hands and needs it about as often. The importance of this cleanliness cannot be stressed enough.
In your body, since all of the organs are interconnected, your mouth health will impact your overall body health, and vice versa. In this article, we’ll first describe connections between oral health problems and overall body problems. Next, we’ll describe the nutritional and lifestyle decisions you can make to help not only your overall body, but your mouth too!
