This article was taken from The Local, a French newspaper...

The dentist is never the favourite place for children but some youngsters will go to greater lengths than others to avoid having to see one, it seems.

One 12-year-old boy in a village in the Alpine village St Gervais even went as far as telling police he had been kidnapped so he wouldn’t have to see the tooth doctor, French paper Midi Libre reported.

The youngster was picked up by police, who spotted him hiding, as they patrolled through the village during the afternoon of May 21.

When quizzed by police the youngster immediately said he had been abducted from the nearby town of Bagnols.

He ...

It's A Girl!!

Dr. Perella, Holly and big sister Sydney are thrilled to introduce Summer Marie Perella!

Summer was born on May 9, 2014 at 5:44 p.m. weighing 7 lbs 15 oz, and 19 inches long. She was 6 days overdue, and for those patients who saw Holly during her "overtime", you will be happy to know Holly is very relieved to finally have her little girl on the "other side."

Our staff, who was just as anxious to meet Summer as the Perellas, finally got to see her on a recent visit.

What are dental crowns?

A crown is a tooth shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth to cover the tooth in order to restore its shape, size, strength and improve its appearance. They are very common and can last from 5 to 15 years.

3) To cover and support a tooth that has a large filling where there isn't a lot of tooth left.

In fact, a survey of American children's oral health conducted on behalf of Delta Dental found that nearly 4 out of 10 American mothers neglect to visit a dentist during pregnancy, which is significant to helping prevent harmful oral and overall health problems for themselves and their babies.

"Expectant mothers and women who are planning to become pregnant ...
