The winter holidays bring with them both happiness and reflection — it’s a time of looking back on memories and looking forward to hope. That’s why this story, my story means so much to me. As Manager, Public and Media Relations for DEXIS, I have many reasons to be thankful. I am grateful to be an integral part of a company with a conscience. DEXIS gives back to the community through donations of equipment and time, through worthy causes such as Give Kids a Smile, Mission of Mercy, and TeamSmile, just to name a few. Attending these events has allowed me to meet the dentists and associates who use our products every day, and share their skills with people whose finances often preclude vital dental care for them and their children.

Although dental caries (tooth decay) is largely preventable, it remains the most common chronic disease of children aged 6 to 11 years (25%), and adolescents aged 12 to 19 years (59%). Tooth decay is four times more common than asthma among adolescents aged 14 to 17 years (15%).

Many adults also have untreated tooth decay (e.g., 28% of those 35 to 44 years and 18% of those 65 and older).

Synergy is defined as two or more things functioning together to produce a result that is greater than the sum of the individual elements. Like the iconic pairings of milk and cookies, movies and popcorn, computers and the Internet, we also have experienced the combining of two great things that fit so well together that we ended up with something that’s even more incredible.
