Jewel embraces her smile

As they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. At HMDC we think it is important for the patient to decide whether they want to cosmetically correct their appearance. Unless it is medically necessary, we will rely on the patient to tell us when and if they wish to correct their smile. 

Case in point, singer, Jewel or the lovely, Lauren Hutton who have both chosen to embrace what others may see as flawed. At HMDC, we understand it is a personal choice.

Natural Health Approaches in Dentistry

In natural health magazines and publications you often see advertisements for holistic dentistry.  Henderson Mill Dental Care traditionally advertises in local Tucker and surrounding area publications.  Even though we do not advertise as being holistic per se, we do offer many similar approaches in our practice and strive to meet the needs and concerns of our patients.

A few of our patient health centered services include:
  • Mercury-free fillings
  • Amalgam-free products
  • Lead free and nickel free crowns
  • Porcelain Veneers & Crowns
  • In-office Restorations and Implants
  • Low Radiation Digital X-Rays – up to 90% less radiation and earlier cavity detection
  • Ultrasonic cleanings
  • Advanced oral cancer screenings through Valscope
  • Perio Protect, a breakthrough non-invasive treatment for Periodontal disease
  • We use all United States based certified labs
  • We maintain high relations with our labs to ensure high quality products

HMDC doctors and staff maintain a high level of continuing education and we continually strive to expand our services as technology advances.   Your overall health is important to us and we are committed to improving the quality of life of each person we interact with everyday.

Congrats to Izumi

Congratulations to HMDC's treatment coordinator, Izumi for completing the Boston Marathon.  Thankfully she was ok and finished just prior to the explosions. We are grateful to have her back at the office with us.

Our heartfelt prayers and thoughts go out to the victims and their families.  On Monday, April 22nd at 2:50 pm doctors, staff and patients at Henderson Mill Dental Care observed a moment of silence in memory of the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.

Kobe Bryant and Dr. Uetsuki

What do Kobe Bryant and HMDC's own Dr. Uetsuki have in common? They share a common injury. Kobe recently tore his achilles tendon and Dr. Uetsuki had the same injury several years ago. Does anyone know how Dr. Uetsuki injured his achilles? Hint...it was not basketball.

And for those inquiring minds....Dr. Uetsuki tore his achilles during a fencing tournament.  Sadly that was the end of his fencing journey.

Celebrating Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day 2013!  At HMDC we encourage you to make every day Earth Day.  One way to support the environment is to compost.  It helps to decrease waste and is good for your garden too.  Pick up a bin at your local hardware store or check out www.costco.com.

Is the Gap back?

To fix the gap or not? Over the last year we have seen many models with front teeth gaps. Is the gap back or perhaps it has never left? Over the years many celebs have refused to correct their gap, like the famous Lauren Hutton, KirstenDunst, Madonna, Seal and Woody Harrelson to name a few.

To correct your gap or not is obviously a personal decision and one best made with your Dentist. No matter your decision, our HMDC doctors can help you weigh the pros and cons and ultimately discover what is best for you. Call 770-496-0496 to schedule your appointment or simply request an appointment today by visitinghttp://mytuckerdentist.com/getting-started/request-appointment.html.
