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.
Since the snow has taken longer than usual to start melting, it might come as a surprise that summer is almost upon us! Summer brings a variety of activities; you can finally plan that trip to the Cape, maybe go camping and of course, you finally have time for that six-month dental appointment. You might even be considering jumping on the bandwagon for a quickly rising trend called “dental tourism.” Dental tourism is the act of going abroad to find a cheap dental appointment, and getting a quick vacation in at the same time. Seems like a great idea, right? For the 500,000 Americans in 2013 who participated in the trend, it surely did.
