Angel Fire Family Dentistry Says “I Know Jo, Do You?”

By Jo Mixon

Does the thought of seeing a dentist invoke those crazy feelings of anxiety, sweaty palms and fear? If so, I have the perfect solution for you! Dr. Strider McCash at Angel Fire Family Dentistry. Your smile is his top priority and his entire staff is dedicated to providing you with personalized, gentle care.
Last week I had the privilege to sit down and speak with Dr. McCash and his charming wife Daniela. (He is helping me to overcome MY fear of the dentist!) I found him to be confident, highly qualified, soft spoken, and personable. I asked him why he chose to be a dentist. He quickly replied that he always wanted to help people smile!

From early on in his life he knew he wanted to be in the medical profession and he wanted to be in a small mountain town, maybe in Colorado. After having come to Angel Fire, he fell in love with this area, bought the property, built his office from scratch then started his practice here in 2001. He shared with me the joy he finds from the business part of his practice as well as the patient side of his practice. He loves the stories and life history he shares with them. He said he has patients who he started seeing when they were children who have grown-up, married, and now have children of their own who are his patients. He cares about his connection with them all.

“A New Mexico native, Dr. McCash grew up in the Albuquerque area. He received his undergraduate degree in biology from the University of New Mexico. Subsequently, he attended Creighton University, in Nebraska, where he received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. He graduated in the top third of his class, as well as scoring in the top third of all three, national dental board exams. While he was in Nebraska, Dr. McCash was a resident dentist at two practices, was an instructor of Crown & Bridge at the Creighton Dental School, and was an on-call dentist for Emergency Dental. Dr. McCash has over 13 years of experience in general and cosmetic dentistry. In his commitment to his patients, Dr. McCash remains in the forefront of dentistry through continuing education, skillful techniques, and advanced technology. When Dr. McCash is not practicing dentistry, one can find him spending time with the three lights of his life: his wife Daniela, and his two children, Durin and Bree. His love of the outdoors includes whitewater kayaking, downhill skiing, bicycle touring, mountain biking, mountaineering, backpacking and traveling to exotic places with his family.”

Angel Fire Family Dentistry Tips

dentistry-tipsTips For a Healthy Mouth!

Use a rechargeable electric toothbrush with proper technique which is a 45 degree angle pointed into the gum line. Don’t overdo it. Overly aggressive brushing can damage teeth and gums.

Floss every night before bed and keep the floss tight against the tooth to break up plaque while leaving your gums in good shape.

Brush your tongue or use a tongue scraper to help prevent bad breath.

See your dental professionals regularly (twice per year is what the American Dental Association advises) and you’ll catch problems early when they’re treatable, not to mention more affordable.

affdDr. McCash Says… Don’t Forget Your Nightguard!

Statistics show that each year more than 3.5 million children, 14 years of age and younger suffer injuries while playing sports or participating in recreational activities, and many of these injuries involve the teeth, mouth and face.

Using any mouthguard for protection is a step in the right direction. However, “off the shelf” mouthguards may be uncomfortable making it harder to breath easily and therefore be discarded or used less frequently. The dentist can custom build a mouthguard, fitted to your teeth and gums, providing maximum comfort and extra protection.

Call us to learn more about a custom-made sports mouthguard for your child.
