We are excited to announce that Dr. Zimmerman has been selected as a 2017 Summit Shootout Semi-Finalist for this year’s Invisalign Summit! There are only a handful of providers that are honored with this recognition every other year, which makes this quite an honor that she was chosen.
Dr. Zimmerman accepted a case that most would shy away from because of its difficultly. The primary obstacle being that the upper front tooth was a baby tooth and was very small, as the permanent tooth never erupted. While the patient’s other teeth were aligning, Dr. Zimmerman did some extensive treatment to get Zoe’s permanent tooth to come through and align with the rest of the teeth. Her case is not yet complete, but as you can see, the progress thus far is amazing!
Great job Dr. Zimmerman, you never cease to amaze us. Good luck!

You water the garden three times a week, you change your car's oil every three months, and you replace the batteries in your smoke detectors once a year. Your teeth need to see your dentist on a regular schedule, too.
While daily oral hygiene habits are essential to good oral health, professional dental cleanings at our office ensure your teeth are treated to a deeper level of cleaning. We recommend for most of our patients to have a checkup at least every six months. In addition to a thorough cleaning and polishing of your teeth, these regular visits help us detect and prevent the onset of tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease. During your visit, we’ll check the health of your mouth, teeth, gums, cheeks, and tongue. We’ll also check old fillings and restorations, as these can wear away over time from constant chewing, grinding, or clenching.
If you are predisposed to oral diseases, you may need to visit our office more often than every six months. Factors at play in these diseases include age, pregnancy, tobacco use, medical conditions (such as diabetes, dry mouth, or HIV infection), along with how well you take care of your teeth on a daily basis.
Make sure your teeth get the professional attention they deserve – If you’re overdue for your next cleaning, check with our office to schedule an appointment!

For the past 62 Februaries, the American Dental Association, or ADA, has sponsored National Children's Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of oral health. National Children's Dental Health Month began as a one-day event in 1941 in a Cleveland clinic. In 1981, however, the program was extended to a month-long celebration known today as National Children’s Dental Health Month.
Each February, Drs. Craig Oiler, Paula Zimmerman, Brian Mitchell, Ryan Niemic and thousands of dental professionals focus on the preventive oral care of America's children. Drs. Craig Oiler, Paula Zimmerman, Brian Mitchell, Ryan Niemic and our staff want you to remember developing good habits at an early age and scheduling regular dental visits helps children get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. Has your child visited Grove City Family Dentistry the past six months? If not, it’s time to give us a call and schedule an appointment!

Did you know February is American Heart Month? It’s a great time to take notice of the health of your heart, says Drs. Craig Oiler, Paula Zimmerman, Brian Mitchell, Ryan Niemic. Cardiovascular disease remains American's number one killer, according to the American Heart Association. Studies have shown a correlation between gum disease and heart disease, underscoring the importance of good oral health care.
Visiting our office on a regular basis can help prevent gum disease or at least catch it in its early stages. And because people with dental insurance are more likely to visit their dentist when they should, a healthy mouth begins with a visit to Grove City Family Dentistry. In observance of Heart Month, Drs. Craig Oiler, Paula Zimmerman, Brian Mitchell, and Ryan Niemic say it’s also important to know your numbers: blood pressure (less than 120/80), cholesterol (less than 200) and BMI (less than 25). If you have any questions about heart health, or about your treatment at Grove City Family Dentistry, please give us a call today.
