10 Health Conditions Hiding in Plain Sight of the Dentist

THIS New Article is Out on Medium!

Let’s face it: the idea of a dental visit can be a lot to chew!

The heckling about flossing; the dozens of questions your dentist asks while wads of cotton sit between your cheeks and your teeth; the age-old question of ‘if I poke you, will you bleed?’ (Although, that last one gets me laughing every time as the patient.)

But those visits to the dentist are important! — and not just for their comedic value or the resultant sparkly, clean teeth 😊 Beneath the plaque and calculus, and monotone dictation of numbers for a chart, your dentist is evaluating your medical health. She is reading your teeth like a road-map, considering your oral and overall health today and over the past few months or years.

Find Your Page, Find Your Peace

There is a lot we cannot control in life. Losses, accomplishments, the reactions around us … so much is out of our hands. But there is something that sits forever within our reach. I urge each and every one of us to never lose sight of the power we do have: the power to flip to that favorite page of a book, and return ourselves to a place of inner peace.

Self Care Saturday

Something *strange* happened just moments ago … and it felt wonderful enough to share. In fact, it resonated with the flick of a sticky note memo flashing in my mind the reminder: This is important. Hold this memory near.

I was simply sitting in the bookstore in Tucson, Arizona, this afternoon, enjoying my surroundings when *BOOM* I had two new friends. The neighbors on either side of me had me engaged in conversation that lasted so long I hadn’t even noticed the time pass.  What wonderful self care!

There’s a lot of hurrying here and there in life (and especially out East or in an academic setting) but THESE are the simple, beautiful moments that remind us to slow down and enjoy the journey.

This moment, right here, is a part of your journey. How will you honor and cherish this moment?
