Dr. Plotka’s Mouth Watchers Flossing and Antimicrobial Toothbrush Review

You may think that a toothbrush isn’t that exciting but I have to say I was pretty excited to receive my new Dr. Plotka’s Mouth Watchers brushes in the mail!  Before I give you my thoughts on the toothbrush, here is a little background on the creator and the technology that makes Mouth Watchers toothbrushes different than your everyday toothbrush:

  Mouth Watchers was created by Dr. Plotka’s who has had a 40 year dental career and actually pioneered dental advancements such as: Dental Bonding, Tooth Sealants, Same-day Crown Fabrication and Laser Dentistry Technology.  Dr. Plotka’s incredible resume and expertise created the unique and revolutionary Mouth Watchers Toothbrushes that have:

  1. Antimicrobial Technology* infused into the bristles eliminating bacteria growth, leaving your brush clean for every use.
  2. A unique dual flossing bristle system that reaches down into to hard to reach areas, where cavities form, and sweeps out cavity and gingivitis forming debris.
  3. Mouth Watchers was included as the only toothbrush in the “Best Products Evaluated During 2012” by the Clinicians Report (the Consumer Reports for dentists), founded by world famous dentist Dr. Gordon Christensen.

Pretty impressive stuff huh?  I’m no expert on toothbrushes but here are my personal thoughts:

  • The bristles are soft and a light crème color which gives it an “organic” look. That’s a good start!  FYI – dentists advise patients to use a softer toothbrush.  When brushing it feels like the bristles are gently messaging my teeth and gums but removes plaque as well.   Wow!
  • I really like the feel of the shape of the toothbrush itself (a soft curved plastic) and the uniquely designed long and short. I think the brush actually does reach areas that an average toothbrush doesn’t although I still feel the need to floss but maybe not as often as before.
  • I love the way my mouth feels after brushing. It feels sparkly clean and really does feel like you’ve just had your teeth cleaned – I’m not kidding!
  • Finally, I am totally sold because this toothbrush has Antimicrobial technology infused into the bristles which eliminates bacterial growth (ugh) makes me feel better overall about my dental hygiene. Did you know that bacteria on the average toothbrush doubles every 20 minutes?   Plotka’s toothbrushes eliminates 99.9% of bacterial buildup due to their proprietary silver bristle technology.  It also eliminates the need to replace the toothbrush as often as the average toothbrush.

Final Thought? I am still very excited about this toothbrush and will purchasing more in the future for myself and my family.  You should get excited about brushing YOUR teeth too!  Go to: https://www.mouthwatchers.com

The Mouthwatchers Manual toothbrush retails for only $4.99 which I think is a bargain considering how good it is for your teeth!  There are also other options such as the power toothbrush for $24.99 and the travel size for $5.99.

The Lion King – The World’s #1 Musical Returns to Dallas

June 13, 2018 through July 7, 2018 at the Music Hall at Fair Park

 

This Classic Broadway adaptation of Disney’s animated movie has returned to Dallas!  After 20 years of performances it’s still one of the most creative productions ever made and remains one of the theatrical marvels of all time.  If you haven’t seen it before you must make the trek to Music Hall. If you’ve seen it before you must make the trek to Music Hall to see it again.

 

Tony Award Winner, The Lion King is one of the most popular productions of all time and has been seen by more than 95 million people around the world.  There’s a reason for that.  This is a musical that appeals to both kids and adults.  The Lion King has a universal theme that we can all relate to and yes, a lot of it is geared to the younger generation (this is Disney after all) but adults love it as well.  My 20 year son was in town from college and he surprised me when he agreed to go with me to see it.  He remembered that The Lion King was the first musical I took him too as a child and he was actually excited about seeing it again.  Not only can my son Jack quote every line from the movie because he saw it a million times as a child but he remembered the musical as being pretty great too.  This time though, he saw it through eyes of an adult and still enjoyed it as much as I did.  We marveled at the creative visual imagery, loved the familiar and catchy music (Grammy award winning actually), and appreciated the African culture depicted in the musical much more than we did before.  The message of the circle of life and the love of family still rang through for us as much as it did 20 years ago.

The performances are wonderful, the costumes are incredible, and the animals are delightful (except for the crazy hyenas – I never liked them and still don’t ha ha).   Take a date, a friend, or a child but go see The Lion King, have fun, and no worries for one magical night!

 

Disney’s The Lion King tickets are available at DallasSummerMusicals.org or by calling Ticketmaster at (866) 870-2717.    They can also be purchased in person at the Music Hall at Fair Park Box Office Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Orders for groups of ten (10) or more may be placed by calling (214) 426-4768 or emailing Groups@DallasSummerMusicals.org. VIP Ticket Packages, which include a prime seat location, a commemorative souvenir program and an exclusive merchandise item, are also available.

Irving Berlin’s White Christmas The Musical

DECEMBER 5-10, 2017 AT THE MUSIC HALL AT FAIR PARK IN DALLAS

Irving Berlin’s White Christmas is in town and how great was it that on the night White Christmas opened North Texas FINALLY got some cold weather?!   It was a perfect night to see one of my all-time favorite Christmas musicals and it was a perfect show to launch me into the Holiday Spirit!

The musical is an adaptation of a 1954 motion picture White Christmas that starred Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye.  Everything about this critically acclaimed and old fashioned musical is magical – the music (Irving Berlin’s – need I say more?), the dancing is incredible (go just to see the top dancing and ice skating numbers) and the players are perfectly cast.   The sets are fun and the costumes are bright and colorful.  The show will transport you into another time and place where you won’t want to leave.

If you’ve never seen the movie or need a refresher – here’s the plot:   It’s the story of a song-and-dance team (former World War 11 army buddies) in the mid 50’s who find themselves putting on a show in a quaint Vermont Inn barn.  Meanwhile they are romancing the talented and beautiful Haynes Sisters.  Coincidentally their general in the war happens to own the inn and needs some help saving it from the banks.    Costars of note are Martha, the general’s sarcastic inn assistant (and love interest perhaps?) and his adorable and precocious granddaughter.  It’s all so 50’s and I love it.

The musical includes some of Irving Berlin’s finest songs such as “Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep,” “Happy Holiday,” “Sisters” (one of my personal favorites) “Blue Skies,” and the unforgettable title song,”White Christmas”.   Starring in the lead roles includes Tony Award-winning actress Karen Ziemba, currently on Broadway in PRINCE OF BROADWAY, who plays Martha Watson.  Sean Montgomery as Bob Wallace, Jeremy Benton as Phil Davis, Kerry Conte as Betty Haynes and Kelly Sheehan as Judy Haynes.  They are all a delight to watch perform.

 White Christmas is like a warm and fuzzy blanket that will wrap you up and make you fall in love with it all over again.   I didn’t even miss the old classic movie it was such a great remake!   Take your parents, your kids, or go with friends to see this Christmas Classic – you can thank me later!

 

DECEMBER 5-10, 2017 AT THE MUSIC HALL AT FAIR PARK

What are you thankful for today?

There is so much to be thankful for – family, friends, good health, prosperity but it’s easy for me to pick what I’m  most thankful for today.  Today is my twin sons 20th Birthday – on Thanksgiving this year!

20 years today I gave birth to twin nuggets who’s combined weight was a little over 5 lbs.  After 5 weeks of bed rest in the hospital they arrived 9 weeks early and spent the next two and a half months in the NICU under the care of the most wonderful nurses and doctors on the planet.  It was an incredibly stressful time where everyday brought new challenges and fears.  At at the end of their extended stay they came home where they grew, thrived, and secured a forever place in my heart.   I won’t kid you, having twin premature babies was a huge challenge but once they were home I never looked back (who had time?).   I can’t imagine life without these two.    They have been the greatest joy of my life and when they arrived I admit my world shifted and was never be the same.  My needs didn’t come first and I was happy to sacrifice everything for them.   Someone once told me that being a parent meant that you will experience the highest of the highs but you will also experience the lowest of the lows.  I hate to brag but I’ve experienced a lot more highs with these two boys than lows and for that I’m very thankful.

My husband and I have been blessed with two of the most loving and sweet boys any parent could hope for.  They are smart, fun, and hysterically funny.  Jack and Jared are fraternal twins and are different in almost every way.  It was like we got two for one – just brothers born at the same time really.  Different looks (a redhead and a brunette, green eyes vs blue,  and major personality differences and interests).  They have brought joy and laughter and amazement.  They overcame every fear the doctors had for them for being so premature.  God has been so good to us.  These two are our miracle babies for sure and I seriously can’t wrap my head around the fact that they aren’t teenagers anymore – they are 20 YEARS OLD!!  I’m not even sure what that will look like and if it changes anything.  I guess they’re like baby adults now – not 21 and not quite legal.

I am so proud of these two and that they are being pursuing their dreams in college.  They still come home for the holidays and they still call occasionally and ask me questions so I think they’re not quite grown (but I seriously think that goes on long after their adults – I still call my mother and ask questions!).  So Happy 20th Birthday Jack and Jared!   I love you both to the moon and back!

 

What are you thankful for the most this year?

Dallas Arboretum Announces ZimSculpt, An Exhibition of Contemporary Stone Sculptures from Zimbabwe

Dallas Arbo Zulu Queen, Tafadzwa Tandi
ZimSculpt

April 15 to July 31, 2017

For the first time ever in the southern U.S., the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden will present the international blockbuster exhibition ZimSculpt, a world-renowned display of over 100 modern Zimbabwean stone sculptures.  Several dozen contemporary Zimbabwean artists’ work will be displayed throughout the garden, much like the previous Chihuly and Gary Lee Price exhibits shown at the Arboretum. Known as Shona sculpture, these contemporary pieces are carved from various types of serpentine and semi-precious stone, often weighing tons, and can be as large as seven feet tall. This sculpture is the most collected form of African art that can be found at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Rodin Museum and in the homes of the Prince of Wales, the Rockefellers, Morgan Freeman, Danny Glover and the late Michael Jackson.

 ZimSculpt is passionate about promoting the work of some of the finest Zimbabwean sculptors. Therefore, as part of the exhibit, artists and sculptors Passmore Mupindiko and  Aron Kapembeza will demonstrate their artistry by carving statues using chisels, hammers, files and sandpaper to create these works, while guests watch and learn about this art.

Dallas Arbor Playing With Mama, Dominic Benhura

Visitors may purchase any of the sculptures on display in the garden, as well as the ones created by the onsite artists and those in The Marketplace, located in Dallas Arboretum’s Pecan Grove. The Marketplace will be open to guests seven days a week and on Wednesday evenings, selling hand-held to medium size sculpture. Commissioned pieces can be ordered and made on site by the artists.

Dallas Arbor Attentive, David White

ZimSculpt, founded in Zimbabwe under the guidance of art collectors Vivienne and Joseph Croisette, believe ZimSculpt has become ‘the world’s premier exhibition of modern Zimbabwean sculpture.  Interestingly, Zimbabwe means “house of stone”, and the country has a long history of stone carving beginning with artists from the 1950s who taught their children how to carve sculpture from stone, with this knowledge was passed down to succeeding generations. The Croisettes work with about 250 sculptors to build their collection, and have held exhibitions in the UK, USA and Canada and have been invited to Bahrain and Dubai.

According to Mark Wolf, Dallas Arboretum board chairman, “We are always looking for unique displays that will do well in a garden setting, and the magnificent contemporary stone statues will fit perfectly within our various gardens. We’re also thrilled that it will be the first time this exhibition will be featured in the southern U.S., thus attracting visitors from the area.”

Dallas Arbor Lullaby, Laknos Chingwaro

During the beginning of the show on April 29 and 30, the Dallas Arboretum features Artscape Reimagined, its juried fine arts and crafts show. The Zimbabwean artists will demonstrate their artistry as a part of the weekend’s festivities. Wolf added, “These unique art pieces resonate with roots from their African homeland. These statues are strong and delicate, stark and complex, contemporary and exquisitely handmade. Everything is done by hand at a high level with tools to carve these stones, and when guests see these artists chisel stone in person, they will see how much work goes into creating these works of art.

ZimSculpt is supported in part by Dave Perry-Miller, Dallas Tourism Public Improvement District, and Neiman Marcus.
