San Miguel de Allende, Mexico is one of the most glorious, sought after cities in the world, and a UNESCO heritage site, preserving its Spanish colonial charm for over 500 years.

This event is to honor Mary, the mother of Jesus, as she contemplates the ultimate death of her son in the coming week. Regardless of your religious beliefs, this is a memorable day.

Yes, the readers of Conde Nast Traveler (2014) rated San Miguel, Mexico the No. 1 place to visit out of the top 25 cities in the world. Can you imagine that it beat out amazing cities like Paris, Rome, Sydney, Prague, Charlston, Kyoto, etc.? Why did the readers rate it so highly?  They based their decision on “its great atmosphere, excellent restaurants, culture and ambiance galore!” I can attest to the rating as it is by far my most interesting city and I return to it frequently. And you can too - just come with me on my next trip in March 2015 and you will also know why this city is at the top of the list.

CEREC Same Day Crowns
Posted: August 20, 2014 - 4:00 am

Many patients ask, “Why do I need a crown?” A dentist may recommend a crown for you to help strengthen a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining to hold the filling, protect cracked teeth from breaking and restore one that’s already broken. Crowns also cover a dental implant (tooth root replacement). Crowns are also great options for covering discolored, stained teeth.
