Congratulations Brian

Time to brag a bit on the oldest son. Congratulations to Brian Harris, Dr. Harris’ oldest child! He has graduated from Cibola High School. This may not sound like much, but with all the AP classes and sporting activities, it is a tremendous achievement. Brian played basketball throughout his high school years, and added tennis his senior year. In the words of his tennis coach, “In all my years of coaching, I have never seen anyone improve as fast at this sport than Brian has this year.” He made the Varsity team and went undefeated in all of his matches. Since the season ended, he continues to have a heavy interest in tennis and it looks like he may have a life-long hobby. He was one of only 25 students out of 700 to graduate “With Honors”, meaning an unweighted GPA of at least 3.5. Brian will attend Brigham Young University in Provo, UT this fall and study Biology. He plans to attend medical school and is interested in anesthesiology. Brian, you are loved and we wish you the best in your future endeavors.

Why We Should Brush Twice a Day

Plaque is a sticky deposit of bacteria that is made from a combination of saliva, food, and liquids in your mouth. It can keep stains on your teeth and lead to gum disease. Plaque can start to form on your teeth just 4 hours after brushing, which is why we tell you to brush at least twice a day and floss daily.

Clean Toothbrush

It is important to rinse your toothbrush with water after you brush. Don’t store your toothbrush in a drawer or container. Keep it in an upright position, if possible, and allow it to air dry until you use it again. These tips will help eliminate bacteria.
