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!!

Stressed out? Your dentist can usually tell! Stress can have a significant impact on your oral health. In fact, dentists can detect oral symptoms of stress, including canker sores, teeth grinding (bruxism), gum disease, temporomandibular disorders (TMD), burning mouth syndrome, and dry mouth, just to name a few. Luckily, many studies have shown that yoga can help people relieve stress, anxiety, and believe it or not, dental troubles!
What comes to mind when you hear cosmetic dentistry? Chances are, you thought of teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is a great option for a brighter and dazzling smile.
