Use or Lose It! Insurance benefits expire!

Insurance | Dental Insurance Moline IL

Halloween Contest!

Our Halloween Contest!

Who doesn’t love a contest, right? That’s exactly what we thought! So for the month of October, we decided to hold a pumpkin decorating contest. The rules were as follows:

  • No carved pumpkins. Decaying pumpkins and a health care office really don’t go very well together!

The Voting

Voting took place on our Facebook page (which if you haven’t already liked our page, please do! We post fun facts and photos of around the office ...

Beat the Brushing Battle

Dentist in Moline IL | LJ Dentistry

Dr. David E. Lemon and Dr. Joseph D. Jackson and our team know it can be a challenge to get our children to brush, brush well, and brush often. Here are some tips that can help you keep those beautiful little teeth healthy.

Make it Fun, Make it a Habit!

We should all brush twice a day. The most important time to brush is at night before bed. When we sleep, our saliva production decreases, and this creates an environment for oral bacteria to cause greater destruction to our teeth and gums. Brushing should last at least two minutes, followed by flossing and mouthwash if you choose.

Here are some ideas to ...
