Have you had a bad experience with your current dentist? Would you like to find another dentist in New Jersey? Or, could you be looking for a good family dentist while in New Jersey? Whatever your answers to the above questions, there are many factors that you need to consider when choosing a good dentist in New Jersey. Since you want the best experience with your dentist, you could consider a specialist such as the dentist in marlton, Dr. Doug Cohen or any other dentists that are qualified and registered by the right authorities.

Here are 5 tips to help you find a good dentist in New Jersey:

  1. Ask other people for better guidance

One of the best ways to find the right kind of a dentist for your needs is to ask for guidance from friends, family and even others people on social media platforms. The friends and family members who have ever had an experience with a dentist in New Jersey may be in a better position to recommend a good dentist for you. You can also discuss this issue with your colleagues in the office. You could also post the question on social media and your friends will be more than willing to offer you a lead into some of the best dentists available in New Jersey.


  1. Online dental reviews

This is another good way you can tell the best dentists available in New Jersey. Most of the online reviews will always contain the pros and cons of the different practices, dentistry included. When you read the reviews about certain dentists online, you are able to know what to expect from the various dentists. The reviews are normally written by people who have had an experience with the dentists. However, you have to be quite careful in what you believe from the reviews. There are dentists who could pay people to write positive reviews about them. Consider the negative reviews as well. Consider when the reviews were written. The older reviews may not work for your benefit as the practice of dentistry changes with time.


  1. Dentist’s emergency care and hours of operation

Consider the dentist’s hours of operation. This will help you to plan your time and schedule visits when it is convenient for you. Does the dentist offer emergency services? If you schedule is limited, then it is better to choose a dentist whose hours of operation fit your busy schedule. After you have narrowed down on some suitable dentists, you can then ask them about their hours of operation. You could also visit the websites of the various dental clinics and consider their opening and closing times. Choose a dentist that has operation schedules that are suitable for you and your family members.


  1. Hyper-Specialized dentist

It is much better to choose a dentist who is hyper-specialized than the dentists who have the general training in dentistry. In short, a dentist who has some sub-specialty is an advantage to you and your family. You see, these kinds of dentists will better diagnose problems and it will be cost effective to you. Your dentist should be someone who uses the latest technology to offer you better services. Dentistry is a delicate practice and you want the best experiences and the best services at cost-effective rates.


  1. Visit the office of the dentist

It is now time to visit the dentists whose credentials you are sure of. You can talk to them face to face and get to know the services they offer. During the visit, you can introduce yourself to the staff over there and get to know the exact thing to expect of the clinic. You can talk to the liaison officer who can answer all the questions that you may have. You could also take some time to talk to the dentist and get to know each other.

A Vaping Update

Vaping is a proven way to help people both cut down and quit smoking altogether, and one which shows no sign of disappearing. As I have written in previous posts, changing from cigarettes to vaping helped my husband, a thirty cigarettes a day smoker, to quit altogether three years ago, and he has never been tempted to smoke since. Recently a close friend, another heavy smoker, has switched to a new e-cig brand in order to try to quit the dreaded weed, and this post is talking about some of her findings and experiences.

Vaping has not been without issues, my husband complained about having to keep refilling the e-cigarette, part of the decision to quit came from when he dropped a full bottle of liquid all over himself and the kitchen floor, but a new concept in vaping may well address this particular issue. Vape AYR has created the first vaporiser that refills and recharges itself automatically, which should make vaping not only healthier, but much easier to do. The Vape AYR e-cig also has a glowdown feature that shows exactly how much you’ve vaped during a single session.

But back to my friend, who I will refer to only as E (she’s too shy to be named in the blog). I asked her why e-cigs seem to be helping her to cut down in a way that patches and gum never did. She explained:

“…Some of it is entirely pyshological. I need to feel a cigarette in my hand. I need to inhale, I need to see smoke. I need to still think that I am smoking even though the taste is different. It’s almost like I’m tricking my head, trying to fool myself, and it is working. I still do things I did before, like having a smoke after a meal, but I have also noticed I have cut down quite a lot, so things are on the right track…”

When I asked what differences she had noticed from using vapes rather than cigarettes, E had lots to say.

“…Well, the main one has been money. I honestly can’t believe how much I am saving, and, in all honesty, it is what is encouraging me to continue. Smoking is just too expensive. I’m not going to say I hate smoking – I love the taste if I’m honest, but the cost, and how anti-social it is now makes me want to quit. I hate standing outside in leper’s shelters because I smoke, I’m old enough to remember when you could still smoke on aeroplanes, but society is so different now, you almost feel you have to quit. But I have to say I don’t miss the smell of smoke on my clothes – I never really noticed it but my kids gave me hell. The vapes smell a lot nicer and fresher…”

Finally I asked if E would ever completely give up.

“Not at the moment, I feel really proud that actual cigarettes have gone, but I’ve smoked for so many years I would find it too hard to withdraw completely. I suffer with my nerves and cigarettes do help me feel calmer. But, I never thought I would get rid of ciggies, so never say never. It’s a watch this space answer.”

Why we should all be taking Vitamin D supplements.

Do you take Vitamin D supplements? If you are, well done! If the answer is no, then maybe you should take a few minutes to re-evaluate this and add Vitamin D to your shopping list. Because if the latest findings from a government commissioned health report is to be believed, we all need a little dose of sunshine added to our lives and diets. (You can read about the report on the BBC website here.)

We get our Vitamin D from sunshine and from good balanced diets that contain items like oily fish, eggs and red meat and liver. But these days, sunshine is in short supply, even in Summer (think days like yesterday, hot and warm, but with hardly any sunshine to enjoy.) Vitamin D from sunshine is absorbed into our skin and helps us to maintain healthy bones, teeth and muscles, making us maintain a fit and healthy physique, but with muggier, duller summer weather, followed by Autumn and Winter, when sunny days are also scarce, we run the risk of not obtaining enough Vitamin D. This can, in turn, cause diseases like Ricketts, and illness like bone and muscle aches and pains.


But these days, there is no real reason to have a deficiency of Vitamin D as your daily dose can be obtained in tablet form through Vitamin D supplements.  The BBC report says:-

“…an extensive review of the evidence, carried out by the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN), suggests everyone over the age of one needs to consume 10 micrograms of vitamin D each day in order to protect bone and muscle health. And public health officials say, in winter months, people should consider getting this from 10 microgram supplements, if their diet is unlikely to provide it…”


A simple tablet supplement that could make all the difference to your health is such a simple addition to your daily routine, but is well worth the benefits.
