Thanks to all our family, friends and patients who gave us very valuable feedback on our new logo. We are now getting new stationary to match and will be implementing a new website, facebook and twitter pages as well as new signage around the practice.
I am taking some time off this weekend for my wedding anniversary. (7 years on May 10th!) Oh my, time has flown by! The practice will be closed on Saturday and will resume normal operations on Monday afternoon at 3pm. As always, our emergency number is available by calling our main number and you can always leave a message on the voicemail. Jodie and I will be checking the messages over the weekend.
Most dental anesthetics that are typically used contain epinephrine (adrenaline). Studies have shown an increase of 10-20 mmHg (to between 130-150 mmHg) in the systolic blood pressure vs non-epinephrine containing anesthetics.
