It’s fall here at Dental Comfort Center, a time when all across the country, the leaves begin to change colors and the air becomes crisp.
Today we wanted to ask you, our wonderful patients, "How are you spending your time this fall?" Our team would love to hear about your favorite places for eating, shopping, and entertainment within the Sioux Falls area. We are interested in learning about what makes your community “yours.”
Feel free to post your responses on our Facebook page, or give us a call!

At the Dental Comfort Center, our team knows the way you care for your teeth at home doesn’t just affect your oral health – it can impact your overall health as well. In recent years, researchers have found clear links between the mouth and other parts of the body, and the evidence is especially impactful for people with diabetes.
November marks Diabetes Awareness Month, and a great time to learn about how keeping your mouth healthy is vital to your overall health, too. If you are one of the nearly 26 million Americans currently living with diabetes, there is some good news: you can protect your gums and teeth from the effects of diabetes by visiting our Sioux Falls office for regular check-ups and cleanings. Most people should have at least two dental appointments per year, but those folks living with diabetes may require additional visits to make sure their dental health remains in top shape. Many insurance plans provide expanded benefits for diabetic patients. Drs. Dennis Graber, Aaron Aadland, and Cody Henriksen can tell you how often you need to come in for your dental visits.
For more information on how we can help, please give us a call or ask us on Facebook!

It’s almost that spooky time of year again! Whether you are going door-to-door trick or treating, attending a party dressed in a clever, silly or scary costume, or simply getting together with friends and family to watch scary movies, Drs. Dennis Graber, Aaron Aadland, Cody Henriksen and our team want you to keep in mind the following tips from our friends at the American Dental Association to help reduce tooth-decay.
• Eat treats with meals. Saliva production increases during meals washing out food particles and helping to neutralize cavity causing plaque acid.
• Consider chewing ADA Accepted sugarless gum after meals. Certain sugarless gums have earned the ADA Seal of Acceptance for scientifically proving that chewing the gum for 20 minutes after meals helped prevent tooth decay.
• Follow the 1-2-3s of good daily oral hygiene: Floss once a day, brush twice a day and eat three balanced meals a day.
• Visit the Dental Comfort Center for regular checkups.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN from your friends at the Dental Comfort Center!
