Baby Boomers Bust Out

Baby Boomers Bust Out

This is an exciting time for those born in 1946- they have finally pushed their pig-size girth through to the tail end of the allegorical “python” and have officially reached retirement age. Coined by historians as one of the most prolific generations in history, these “Baby Boomers” (including those born over the following 18 years), have experienced the best and the worst of American society... and of dentistry, too.
When Boomers were born...

Tooth pulling was more common than placing fillings.

Amalgam (metal alloy) was the standard filling material.

Belt-driven drills and sodium pentothol were hi-tech.

Soap and water was the only protection a dentist's hands needed.

Over 60% of our patients are Baby Boomers whom we are helping to achieve longevity and youthful smiles. We can help you, too. Call us for a free consultation.
