It's Time to Celebrate!
"Everyone Deserves a Healthy Smile"

Between May 16 and June 16, 2022, the Oral Health Foundation will raise awareness of the importance of oral health issues with this year's theme: Everyone Deserves a Healthy Smile.
During the height of the pandemic, many families delayed treatment, missing essential check ups and therapies that could have protected their oral health. If that sounds like your family, there's no time like the present to get the entire crew booked for cleanings and exams. The upcoming summer break is the perfect time to schedule appointments that don't conflict with classroom learning.
For children and adults, a healthy smile improves self confidence - and when you smile, it actually puts you in a better mood, all while having a positive affect on the people around you, too. Gift your entire family the confidence - and happiness! - that comes with a cared-for mouth, teeth and gums - because everyone deserves a healthy smile!

Room to Grow
It has taken modern educators around 150 years to disassemble an educational system that took thousands of years to refine and establish.
The classical method was born in ancient Greece and Rome, and by the 16th century, it was used throughout the Western world. This system educated most of America's founding fathers as well as the world's philosophers, scientists and leaders between the 10th and 19th centuries. What other period can claim so many advances in science, philosophy, art, and literature?
For education to be effective, it must go beyond conveying facts. Truly effective education cultivates thinking and articulate students who are able to develop facts into arguments and convey those arguments clearly and persuasively. Parents across the United States are recognizing that classical education adds the dimension and breadth needed to develop students' minds. Rigorous academic standards, a dedication to order and discipline and a focus on key, lost subjects is fueling the rapid growth of the nation's classical schools.
There is no greater task for education than to teach students how to learn. The influence of progressive teaching methods and the oversimplification of textbooks make it difficult for students to acquire the mental discipline that traditional instruction methods once cultivated. The classical method develops independent learning skills on the foundation of language, logic and tangible fact. The classical difference is clear when students are taken beyond conventionally-taught subjects and asked to apply their knowledge through logic and clear expression.
In 1947, Dorothy Sayers, a pioneer in the return to classical education, observed, "although we often succeed in teaching our pupils 'subjects,' we fail lamentably on the whole in teaching them how to think." Beyond subject matter, classical education develops those skills that are essential in higher education and throughout life - independent scholarship, critical thinking, logical analysis and a love for learning.
