April has arrived and with it comes lots of exciting things. First up, we’ve got Easter. Who doesn’t love indulging in a chocolate bunny? They’re cute, delicious, and can be easily cleaned off of teeth! A win across the board. For us, Easter is an important Christian holiday that is celebrated not only with activities like Easter egg hunts and dyeing eggs but with family gatherings and Sunday sermons to reflect on all of our blessings.
Dr. Clark is looking forward to spending more time with her family over the Easter holiday enjoying the beautiful spring weather. Her goal for the month is to be outside more and be consistently active, so it looks like there will be many bike rides and picnics in her future. If you’re spending more time outdoors like we are this spring, don’t forget to wear your mouthguard. Especially if you’re participating in sports that put your teeth at risk like baseball (go Astros!).
This month is also host to Earth Day. This is such an important day to spread awareness about the importance of taking care of our planet. If we all chip in a little bit in our day-to-day lives, we’ll not only make it a better place for ourselves but also for future generations to come. Our team at Pearland Pediatric Dentistry is on a mission to recycle all of our plastic and paper waste! If you’re just getting started on your eco-friendly journey, try starting with purchasing items that are reusable instead of disposable. It could be as simple as bringing in your own coffee cup when you’re purchasing your morning coffee. That’s one less paper cup that will be used. Being eco-conscious can also be as easy as being mindful of how much energy you’re using. If you’re brushing your teeth, for example, don’t leave the water running the entire time! Use it only when you need it.
We hope you’re all having a lovely month so far. Don’t forget to check out our spring decor the next time you visit us in the office!
