Welcome Smileboston Pembroke to the Family
Smileboston Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry (http://www.smileboston.com/) is growing! Smileboston expanded its close-knit family to include an office in Pembroke, MA— a skip, hop and a jump from beautiful Cape Cod. The Pembroke office is fully up and running and just celebrated its first anniversary.

It’s been a pleasure getting to know the community and providing the same quality service that our patients have come to know and expect. In fact, Paige Polk and Carrie Rubbicco moved from the Brookline office and manage Smileboston Pembroke with panache! We invite you to come visit us soon. Please call 781-826-7577 to schedule your next appointment.
A Dream Come True
This summer Dr. Steven Spitz was able to fulfill a lifelong dream working with the Peter Emily International Veterinary Dental Foundation (http://www.peteremilyfoundation.org/) to perform root canals and other dental procedures on large animals, including a tiger and wolf.

Dr. Spitz was astounded by the scope of the work accomplished by the Foundation as well as the vast need for animal dental services. Since October 2008, the Foundation has treated 134 animals at 13 sanctuaries during 28 rescue operations, completing 267 Root Canal Therapies, 141 Extractions and 45 other procedures on lions, tigers, leopards, cougars, jaguars, bears, wolves, hippos, chimpanzees, baboons, and more.

With more than 600 exotic animal sanctuaries and more than 200 zoos and aquariums in the US and Canada alone, there are many animals in need of dental work. Dr. Spitz just hopes he gave this tiger a reason to smile!
Team Profile: Jackie Jones
While you may recognize this friendly face, did you know that Jackie Jones has been Smileboston’s Operations Manager since 2002? With over 25 years of experience in the dental industry, she has become a leader in the field of practice management. Jackie’s focus is ensuring that Smileboston’s patients receive VIP service and that team members are happy, enthusiastic, and having fun at work.

Jackie grew up in a small town in the heart of the Finger Lakes Region in Central New York and still resides in the Empire state. Boston has been her “home away from home” for the past 6 years. She and her husband, Rick, are considering a permanent move to the Boston area in the next 12 months. For the time being, Jackie continues to travel to Boston twice a month. When she’s not in our Brookline or Pembroke locations, she works remotely from her office in Auburn, New York.

In her free time, Jackie enjoys the simple things in life: music of any kind, gardening, bonfires, Syracuse basketball, and cooking. And for the record, she is NOT a Yankees fan! Jackie and her husband, Rick, have been married for 26 years; have two adult daughters and two grandchildren.
Word of Mouth
Halloween doesn’t have to be a dental disaster! Chewing sugar-free gum after eating candy helps stimulates saliva and can actually help to counteract sugar.
A stiff-bristled toothbrush and overzealous brushing can cause serious dental problems over time. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and remember to brush your teeth longer, not harder.
Fun marshmallow teeth treats (http://www.kidskubby.com/3-fun-marshmallow-halloween-treats/) to help celebrate the season. Just remember to brush after you induldge!
