For example, the next time you go to get your teeth checked for cavities, you will notice that your dentist and their staff are wearing personal protective equipment (PPE). Curious to know how this can help you stay safe from the Coronavirus?

Dear Valued Patients,
I am writing you today about a change at our practice that has been in progress for a few months. Due to the recent Covid crisis things have transpired somewhat behind the scenes. My business partner, Dr. Jayme Glamm, is relocating back to Ohio to be closer to her family. We are sad to see her leave, but excited for her to be back home where she grew up, and where she will continue her life close to her family. Dr. Glamm and I started Pearl Dentistry almost a decade ago, and we built a wonderful practice together. I am excited to carry Pearl Dentistry forward with the same important values and the support of my amazing team.
I am also very excited to formally introduce Dr. Amanda Pooler to you, who joined our practice in January. Some of you may have had a chance to meet her already. Dr. Pooler was born in Colorado, and then spent most of her life in Texas. She and her husband have relocated back to Colorado, where they want to build a life and a family. Please join me in formally welcoming Dr. Pooler to Pearl Dentistry! We are thrilled to have found someone who shares the same philosophy, experience, and sense of personalized quality care we have built so diligently over the years, and which is and will be so important for our practice moving forward. Below please find a farewell letter from Dr. Jayme Glamm. We will send out a formal introduction letter for Dr. Amanda Pooler in the next couple of days.
Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions. We are here for you and we are working hard to make this transition as seamless as possible within these ever changing times. Thank you for being part of our Pearl Family!
Very Truly Yours,
Stefanie Walker DMD
I hope this letter finds you well and you and your loved ones are healthy. These are crazy times! I wanted to let you know that my family is relocating to Ohio. As you may know, both my husband and I grew up in Ohio and we are moving back to raise our kids near our families. It is a very bittersweet decision and we have loved being in Colorado the past 13 years. We want to make it a priority to visit! I plan to have a practice in Columbus, Ohio and continue practicing what I love to do.

When you’re sick, the last thing you often think about is your oral health. Getting out of bed can be hard enough. Attempting to brush your teeth, floss, and rinse, especially when dealing with a cough, may leave you thinking it’s not worth the time or effort. Unfortunately, this mindset can lead to a serious decline in the health of your teeth and gums, resulting in unnecessary and costly dental treatments to fix a mouth full of cavities or gums plagued by infection. Since a cough is often one of the most common signs of COVID-19, the common cold, and the flu, the remedies used to treat it remain the same. To prevent your oral health from moving in a downward spiral, a local dentist shares what you can do to keep your smile decay and disease-free even while you’re sick.(more…)

If you want to keep your smile intact, you’ll need to have the condition treated immediately before the damage it inflicts becomes irreversible. While the standard treatment for gum disease is a deep cleaning with metal tools, many modern practices have been turning to modern technology to offer their patients a potentially far more comfortable option: laser dentistry.(more…)

It’s not too uncommon in movies and TV for the bad guy/girl to have yellow teeth. This is supposed to say to the audience that something is “wrong” with them, but in reality, yellowed teeth are much more common than you might think. Dark drinks like coffee and soda, tobacco, and even natural aging can all cause your smile to lose its luster and develop that iconic “evil” yellow hue over the years. Fortunately, unlike the characters you see on screen, you can actually do something about it with teeth whitening in Denver. All it takes is just a quick trip to the dentist to give your smile that “heroic” white glow.(more…)
