Today is Kim’s last day in our practice. We are bidding her farewell as she moves from Medina to join her husband Scott in southern Ohio. Kim is leaving the dental profession and becoming a farrier, a horse shoer! If you know anyone in southeastern Ohio who has a horse needing shoes, Kim is your person. Even though it is hard to say goodbye, we are so thrilled for her as she begins this new chapter in her life.
We know our patients will miss her too….but do not despair! We have hired a new hygienist, Cari, that we are confident you will love as much as Kim. Stay tuned to our blog as we introduce Cari to our practice!
We wish you the absolute best of everything Kim! Thank you for seventeen great years!

April is National Oral Cancer Awareness month, a time when the dental community and health professionals alike rally together to fight against a serious disease. Did you know that oral cancer has a death rate of at least one person per hour of every day of the year? Literally, of those patients that will be diagnosed this year, it’s only estimated that 60% will live longer than five years. Those that do survive end up suffering from long-term issues like facial disfigurement or difficulties eating and speaking. The most shocking part of all this is that oral cancer has an 80-90% retention rate! The reason why a lot of patients end up suffering from oral cancer rather than being able to reverse its effects is that many patients don’t take the time to receive an oral cancer screening in Medina like they need and deserve to.
