Congratulations to our Missouri City SnowFest Prize Raffle Winner G.V.!

We would like to thank all of the hundreds that visited us at the Avalon Dental Prize Tent at the Missouri City Parks and Recreations' Winter Snowfest this year.

My wife and I enjoyed meeting and sharing oral hygiene awareness with our local community and also giving back to our neighbors with free prizes and toothbrushes.

In all there were 6 lucky winners of gift cards just in time for the Holidays and a Grand Prize winner of a Sonicare "Flexcare" mechanical toothbrush and accessories, a $200 value!

We would also like to take this time to thank the Missouri City Parks and Recreations Department again for inviting us to take part in their annual Winter SnowFest. There were fun activities for the whole family, like a snow slide, face painting, rock climbing, and a performance by professional loggers.

Here at Avalon Dental, we enjoy participating in all community events to help promote oral hygiene in our community and meet our neighbors.

Dental Topics: Prevention Through Education
The field of dentistry has benefitted greatly from the advancements in materials and technologies to help promote good oral health. Yet as a dentist myself, I've seen that my profession has embraced these new technologies at the risk of spending less time promoting "prevention through education." The truth is the healthiest mouths are not the mouths of the wealthiest people, but rather the mouths of educated people. This blog is my effort to educate the public and promote good oral health.
