Welcome to 2014! Here at Austin/Pray Family Dentistry we are wishing you and your family a happy and healthy new year! If you are one of the many people that make resolutions each year, we would like to suggest that a commitment to taking better care of your oral health would be a great one.


-When it comes to taking care of your teeth, finding a daily routine and sticking with it is important. Brushing at least twice a day, once in the morning and once before bed, and flossing daily can go a long way to helping with a healthy smile.

-This time of year many people plan to cut back on sweets and snacking. This can also be a huge benefit for your teeth. Sugary foods produce acids that can cause tooth decay and gum disease. Reducing these sugars can lead to healthier teeth and gums.

-Visiting your dentist regularly, at least once every six months, can help to ensure your teeth and gums are staying healthy. Dr. Austin and Dr. Pray can advise you on any necessary treatments and help you make 2014 your healthiest dental year ever!


Austin/Pray Family Dentistry is ready to help you take care of your teeth and gums in this new year. Together we can take steps to ensure a happier and healthier 2014. A healthy smile means a healthy you!
