Make Your Mom SMILE This Mother’s Day

Here at Dana Cosmo Dental, we love seeing our patients smile. Not just because we love to see your beautiful smile that we are working towards, but also because we love to see you happy. But this Mother’s Day, we want to make sure that all of our patients make their mom smile! This year, Mother’s Day falls on May 14th, leaving you with the perfect amount of time to plan the perfect day for your mom!

After asking around the office, the Dana Cosmo Dental team has come up with a few ideas to help ensure your mom has the perfect day that she deserves! But what should you do, where should you go, and how can you make her smile?

 

  • Plan a Day Trip: Your mom is likely busy every day of the week. Whether she works or not, being a mother can be extremely time consuming and stressful. So why not give her a day off and plan a nice day trip to somewhere she loves? We asked some of the moms on our Dana Cosmo Dental team where they envision their perfect Mother’s Day being spent and here are some of the top ideas. If it’s warm out, take a trip to the beach! Or, if your mom is in need of a relaxing day, bring her to a nail salon or a day spa. Maybe your mom is into adventures; why not spend the day at an amusement park? Or take a trip to the local zoo! Think about what your mom loves and start from there.
  • Presents from the Heart: Who doesn’t love getting a homemade present? The easiest way to make your mom smile is to make her a gift from the heart. Head out to your local craft store and look around. Maybe grab a canvas and paint to make her something to hang up. Decorate a picture frame and get a photo of the two of you to put in it. Maybe even learn how to make jewelry and surprise her with your newest talent! If you want to get your mom a present, homemade is one of the best ways to go!
  • Cook her a Meal: We know how hard it can be to get out of bed early on a Sunday morning, but it’s all worth it to surprise your mom with breakfast in bed! This is a day to celebrate your mom, so why not make her a breakfast filled with her favorite foods! Pancakes, cinnamon rolls, waffles, eggs, muffins… our mouths are watering just thinking about it! If your mom isn’t a breakfast person, then what about dinner? Again, just stick with her favorite foods and you’re ready to go!

 

There’s nothing better than seeing someone smile, so make sure to make your mom the happiest she can be this Mother’s Day! From Dr. Zadeh and the staff at Dana Cosmo Dental, we want to wish all of the moms out there a Happy Mother’s Day and thank you for all that you do!

The Best and Worst foods for your teeth! (2)

Here is a dental tip from your Dana Point Dentist!

When it comes to taking care of your teeth , eating the right food is as important as oral hygiene, and visiting your dentist regularly.

The worst foods for your teeth are: Sugary breakfast cereals, Sugary snacks and drinks such as soda, juices and smoothies.

The Best foods for your teeth are : Milk and other calcium-rich foods such as cheese.

Do not brush your teeth straight after you drink fruit juice or any other acidic food to avoid washing away your enamel, instead drink water to rinse off the acid or re-mineralize your enamel by drinking some milk or eating some cheese.

Please take care of your teeth, you live with them everyday!

Happy new year to all!
