Memorial Day Weekend, only days away, is a time to reflect and honor the men and women who have served to protect America and ensure our freedom.
It’s also the unofficial start of summer, and for many people, getting out of town for three days after being cooped up in the office or at school is sweet, sweet relief. At Southcenter Dental, we also know Memorial Day weekend is ripe for travel. After all, it’s unofficially the start of summer and a time for a season full of vacations, adventures and great memories. Whether you are headed to a barbecue, a camping trip, or hitting Washington's open roads with family, we’d love to hear all about it!
Here's to a nice and relaxing weekend!

Did you know the month of May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month? In 1983, President Reagan encouraged people to include more physical activity into our lives, and the reminder is even more significant today as folks are more distracted by television, social networking and working more and more hours. Living an active lifestyle can - and does - improve physical and mental health, productivity and overall well-being. The best part? It doesn’t have to take a lot of time or effort.
The U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services has provided these public health guidelines for your reference. The guidelines call for people to exercise one hour every day of moderate intensity physical activity (such as playing sports or brisk walking) or one hour and 15 minutes of vigorous activity (jogging, jumping rope or dancing).
At Southcenter Dental, we always encourage our patients to exercise or participate in sports. However, we would like to stress that you always wear a mouth guard or other forms of facial protection when doing so. To learn more about how often you should exercise, we recommend you check out these helpful tips, courtesy of our friends at the American Heart Association.
