Spring cleaning? While you are cleaning your home, yard, planting bulbs and flowers … keep in mind about “cleaning” your teeth!
Regular dental visits are important because they can help spot dental health problems early on when treatment is likely to be simpler and more affordable. They also help prevent many problems from developing in the first place. Visiting your dentist regularly is also important because some diseases or medical conditions have symptoms that can appear in the mouth.
Is this the cutest picture or what?
Clara, who is Janet’s 5 year old grand daughter, came in for her regular cleaning and check up! Three thumbs up for the cutest patient of the day, the awesome pose and for three beautiful smiles!
Dr. Blair, Janet and Tammy returned safely from their dental mission trip to Guatemala! Thanks to sooo many of you for your kind thoughts and prayers during their travels.

Hello wonderful patients of Covington Family Dental!
On Friday, January 27th, Dr. Blair, Janet and Tammy will be traveling to Nebaj, Guatemala with WIND, a Christian mission organization. WIND serves the native Mayan people of the remote, mountainous Ixil region of Guatemala. Dental care is among the greatest needs for this impoverished region, as processed sugars are prevalent in their diet but there is almost no access to dental care.
Two years ago Dr. Blair and Janet traveled to this same town and, along with two other dentists, helped about 250 children. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers as they travel and work in Guatemala.
Due to their absence, our office will be closed from January 27th through February 5th. During that time, if you have a dental emergency, please contact Dr. Michael Campbell’s office at 253.852.9088. He is located at 24722 104th Avenue SE, Suite 101 in Kent.

On January 10th, we had our first Covington Community Business Expo at the Affinity Apartments. What a great set up – well organized and welcoming. It was a wonderful opportunity to network with other businesses … just a fun day!
Thanks to Cindy, Manager of Affinity apartments and the Chamber!
Happy Holidays from our home to yours. Here are a couple of pics from a great and festive get together at Dr. Blair’s, Kelly’s and their furry little girl, Audrey’s home.
We had a delicious dinner, played Bunco, exchanged white elephant gifts … great time!!! How about our ugly sweaters? Love them, right?
Our wish is that you’re able to be with your families, friends and loved ones and share this very special time of the year.
