Before I get into my Follow Through Friday business, can I ask you all a favor?
Would you please take 30 seconds to send a valentine card to a sick child at Texas Children's Hospital? It's quick, easy, and free. You can send as many as you'd like. You can share it on all your social media outlets.
I just wrapped up my pediatric clinical rotation at TCH and it was amazing. Even the floors that didn't really excite me were wonderful. The kids are absolutely inspiring and their families are so strong. I know now that I want to work there and that is exciting and terrifying. But in the meantime, consider sending a valentine card or two or ten.
So what's new in my Follow Through Friday? Pearly whites, that's what!
I few weeks back I mentioned that I wanted to start taking better care of my teeth and make them whiter. I began by flossing
Today I went to a new dentist. I hated the dentist I had to see on my old insurance - it was one of those box chain dentist stores. Ugh. But a friend who is from Houston recently graduated dental school and gave me a few referrals. Note: If you're in the Houston area and need a new dentist, check out Dr. McEwen at Richmond Landing Family Dentistry.
I loved Dr. McEwen and his team!
WARNING: Do not judge my crowded bottom teeth! Or my uneven skin tone! I'm working on the skin and I hope to do Invisalign in the near future. (Yes, Mom, I should have worn my retainer. Or the orthodontist should have given me a permanent retainer like everyone else I know.)
I still feel like my teeth have room to whiten, but I've got a 2-hour Rembrant whitener kit that I'm going to do closer to the wedding. But the big news is - LOOK AT THAT TOOTH! It was so stained (or so I thought) and turned out it was tartar that they could clean off. Thank goodness (and eeew!!)!
|Latte through a straw is my new favorite thing. And I think it will help keep my teeth nice and bright!|
Now... anyone know where I can get one of those scrapey dentist tools? I'm sort of obsessed with having one since that my teeth are so clean!
