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.

Dr. Baruffi knows everybody loves a bright white smile, but dentists everywhere are becoming more and more concerned that their patients are reporting more mouth problems due to excessive whitening.
In an age—and culture—where looks matter as much as anything in life, more and more folks want to look and feel great. But there can be too much of a good thing when it comes to teeth whitening. At Southcenter Dental, we offer in-office whitening, the quickest, most effective way to achieve whiter teeth. Our BriteSmile® treatment is simple, relaxing and painless! First, you'll meet with the doctor for a complimentary consultation to answer your questions. And if you are interested in the treatment, the doctor will examine your teeth and gums to make sure they are healthy and ready for the treatment. During the procedure, BriteSmile's proprietary gel and blue light treatment whitens your teeth with stunning results.
We also offer at-home whitening (over-the-counter) products and at-home whitening (doctor-dispensed): We offer at-home whitening kits as well. At Southcenter dental, we're here to whiten your teeth professionally and effectively.
Lastly, we'd like you to read this helpful article on teeth whitening.
Enjoy the rest of your week!
