Check out this blog from Dr. Reagan about his summer mission trip to Belize! It is so rewarding to be in the smile business! 🙂
This was our 7th year for my family to travel to Belize with the North Belize Medical Mission. Every year it is said, “This is the best year ever!” and this year I really think it was. The team was great! Kim Camerer was able to go for a 4th time. After talking over the years about it to our patients we even had some join the team as well.
We saw just under 1,000 patients over the course of the week. The highlight was showing the health care workers how to place a sealant to reduce cavities in their village. This was a 1st in the country of Belize. Family Dentistry was “using their smiles to change the world”!
The Family Dentistry of Neosho team LOVES hearing that our patients LOVE coming to see us! It is so important to us to make the experience comfortable for all ages! 🙂

Family Dentistry of Neosho loves the month of February because it is Children’s Dental Health Month! We believe it is important to educate kids on why it is important to take good care of their teeth and teach them good dental health habits.
Here are some dental health tips you should always follow:
1. Take your children in for their first dental visit at their first birthday.
2. Encourage them to brush at least twice a day and floss at least once a day.
3. Visit your dentist every 6 months for a cleaning & exam after the initial visit.
4. Avoid giving kids sugary snacks and help them maintain a balanced diet to keep their teeth healthy!
