We wish all of our patients, friends, and family a safe and exciting summer filled with lots of fun and smiles!  Don’t forget, time off from school and work means more time for you and your family to visit us for your dental needs.  Yes, a dental cleaning is a necessity even on a beach day.

On a more exciting note, we did have some things to celebrate this month.  Yesenia was awarded Employee of the Month of May!  This title was well deserved.   Yesenia has been with us for a couple of years now.  She has been a great addition to our team.  Yesenia is the backbone of the front office with her excellent knowledge of dental care and dental insurance.  She has built a trusting relationship with our patients.  Yesenia will go above and beyond to provide the best she has for our patients and our practice.   Her fluency in Spanish has helped deliver information to our Spanish speaking patients, which has been very much appreciated by all.

We also celebrated a birthday! Happy birthday to our office manager, Jill!  We hope your day was a fabulous as you are.

We would like to congratulate our newly Board Certified Periodontist, Dr. Matthew Hickin!  Dr.Hickin worked hard to further his competency as a gum specialist and is now an honored diplomate of the American Academy of Periodontology. The American Board of Periodontology was established in 1939 and is one of nine specialty boards recognized by the American Dental Association.   The American Board of Periodontology strives to advance the art and science of periodontics and elevate the quality of periodontal care through the examination, certification, and recertification of periodontists and by encouraging the achievement and maintenance of diplomate status.  We are proud to have Dr.Hickin on our team!

Dr.Hickin is not the only dentist on top of his game this month.  Both Dr.Khan and Dr. Hickin attended the 12th International Symposium for Periodontics and Restorative Dentistry in Boston this past weekend!  They joined dentists from all over the world at this four day educational conference to get the latest scoop on cutting edge procedures and techniques.

Congratulations to our team for making Smiles for Life a HUGE success!!! Special thanks to the special patients who donated to a wonderful cause.   Together, we raised $6,300 and surpassed our goal of $5,000!  As you may know, half of that amount will be donated to the Smiles for Life Foundation while the other half will be donated to Haven from Hunger in Peabody!  Have you checked out our facebook page lately?  If so, you know that out docs held up their end of the bargain.  Reaching our goal meant that Dr.Scialabba would willingly get pied in the face by Dr. “The Tooth Fairy” Dr. Khan.   We were also featured on WCVB Channel 5 “Wake up Call” promoting our Smiles for Life Campaign.  Did anyone see us live on television?
