It’s December already?? This year has really flown by! December is always a busy time of year and that holds true here at St. Charles Family Dentistry. This weekend is our staff Holiday Party at Drs. Ed and Lynn’s house. I am certain it will be a great time, and everyone is really looking forward to it. Next weekend is the final installment of Dr. Ed’s Advanced Orthodontics lecture series. This will be the sixth time that doctors from across the nation will visit our office to listen to Dr. Ed. It has been a great lecture series, and we are very thankful to all the patients and staff who have helped make it a success!

Just a reminder that for the second year, SCFD is a collection site for Toys for Tots. We are offering a free fluoride varnish for patients who bring in a new, unwrapped toy. Be sure to take advantage of this great offer and great opportunity to give to a wonderful charity.

Do you have a difficult person to shop for on your holiday list? Well consider a gift certificate to St. Charles Family Dentistry. The gift certificate can be used for tooth whitening, oral hygiene products like the Oral-B Power Brush, or any dental service. Give the gift of a bright, healthy smile this holiday season!

Everyone at SCFD is thankful for our great team, wonderful families, and the best patients in the World! Happy Holidays from all of us!

It’s that time of the year again…. Snow is on the ground and the holidays are fast approaching. It’s a very busy time of year and going to the dentist may be low on your list of priorities, but don’t forget about your routine cleaning or any unfinished work before those precious insurance benefits disappear January 1. Call the office today to set up an appointment – (630)377-3131!

For the second year, SCFD is a collection site for Toys for Tots! This year we are offering a free fluoride varnish ($35 value) for patients who drop off a toy valued at $10 or more. This is a great way to brighten up the holidays for a child in need and give yourself a boost toward healthy, strong teeth!

In other news around the office, we added three new team members in October! We want to welcome Jaime, Morgan, and Ellen to the St. Charles Family Dentistry team! Jaime will be working chairside with Dr. Ed, Morgan will be assisting the hygienists, and Ellen will be working at the front desk. We are all very excited to have these three wonderful ladies as part of our team. J

Another busy and exciting month is in full swing at St. Charles Family Dentistry! Everyone is in good spirits with the warmer weather and sunny days. Here’s what is happening around the office…

During the first week of April, Dr. Krysta, Mel, Angela, and Pam went to sunny Scottsdale, AZ to attend the Team Training Institutes’ quarterly Mastermind meeting. We were able to participate in a group discussion with seven other dental practices from around the country. The meeting was led by Dr. John Meis and Wendy Briggs. We were able to bring back some great ideas to strengthen our dental team and to better care for our patients! What a great group to be part of!

Wednesday, April 10thwas hygienist Heather H.’s birthday! It was a very special birthday so we had a little celebration for her the next day. If you were lucky enough to be her patient that day, you couldn’t miss her festive operatory decorated in pink and black. She had a blast, as did the whole office!

This weekend, Drs. Lynn and Ed, are in fabulous Hollywood, California. Dr. Ed is lecturing with Dr. Olmos and Dr. Mahoney on TMD and how orthodontics are involved in the treatment process. If I had to guess, they are all having a little fun out there on the side.

Next Thursday night, April 18th, we are celebrating the second anniversary of the TMJ and Sleep Centre of Chicago! As many of you know, this practice is Dr. Lynn’s practice that is located across the parking lot from our main general dentistry office. Dr. Olmos will be presenting a lecture that evening to many area physicians, chiropractors, dentists, and other health care professionals about TMD and how it relates to their practices. That lecture will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn in St. Charles, Thursday, April 18that 6:15PM. 

Next weekend is the fifth of six sessions in Dr. Olmos’ Advanced TMJ residency series that we have been hosting at our office. Dentists and their staffs will be returning to St. Charles for two days of advanced training in diagnosing and treating patients with TMD. It is always a pleasure to host those doctors and hear lectures from Dr. Olmos.

So, busy all around but of course our number one priority is always OUR PATIENTS! We wouldn’t be able to do all this fun stuff without our awesome patients. Our doctors, hygienists, and staff are always striving to provide the best care for our guests. So thank you everyone for being AWESOME!

Spring is fast approaching and everyone at St. Charles Family Dentistry is very excited. We are already planning our spring scrub colors for the office. :) 

Happy National Dental Assistant Appreciation Week! To honor our wonderful staff, we had a Staff Appreciation Day last Thursday to say "thank you" for all their hard work. Our office would not be the same without these awesome ladies! 

This month is also Kiley's one year anniversary at St. Charles Family Dentistry! She has been an excellent assistant to Dr. Ed. She is a ray of sunshine around the office. Kiley has truly been an asset to this office! Happy one year anniversary, Kiley!! 

Don't tell her I told you... but it is Dr. Lynn's birthday today! I would like to keep my job so I won't disclose her age.... But be sure to give her a shout out if you see her! 

Other news: Dr. Ed was in Las Vegas this past weekend presenting some lectures and attending some CE courses. A lot of education but also a lot of fun! 

Upcoming events: This weekend is the fourth session of the TMD course by Dr. Steve Olmos which is held at our office. It will be a busy but exciting weekend for everyone involved!

February has proven to be a busy month at St. Charles Family Dentistry!

We started the month off with “Dentist with a Heart” on February 7th. We had excellent turn out and everyone had a wonderful time providing free dental care for those in need. We ended up seeing over forty patients during our four-hour session! Three dentists, three hygienists, five assistants, and two front desk receptionists worked together to make this event such a success. We are already looking forward to next year’s event.

This past weekend we hosted a two-day session of continuing education about TMD diagnosis and therapy. This was the third session in the six-part series led by Dr. Steve Olmos. Doctors from across the nation convened in St. Charles to listen to lectures by Dr. Olmos and to participate in hands-on patient care. The next two-day session will be hosted at our office in Mid-March.

This coming weekend is the annual mid-winter meeting hosted by the Chicago Dental Society at McCormick Place in Chicago. Dr. Krysta will be attending CE courses and walking the convention floor to learn about the most current dental techniques and technology. Drs. Lynn and Ed will be jumping across the pond where they will be attending some lectures in London. A lot of learning, but also a lot of fun to be had this weekend!

We have had a great response with our in-office whitening special and have decided to extend it through February. The special is in-office bleaching for $199 (regularly $499) and includes custom home whitening trays! It’s really quite the deal!
