Great-Looking Teeth Matter to Us
We love seeing our patients’ happy smiles. Whether you are coming in for a cleaning or seeing your new smile after a cosmetic treatment, knowing that you love your smile makes us feel great, too.
That’s true in two ways for dental hygienist Tiffany Shelton!
At our office, Tiffany wants to keep your mouth as healthy as it can be. That means providing cleanings to remove bad bacteria, plaque, and tartar from your teeth.
Outside the office, she wants to capture those wonderful smiles in pictures. Tiffany has had a love of photography from a young age, and in the year 2000, she set off for the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA. In 2016, she opened her own photo studio, RSKS Photography, where she focuses on portrait photography.
You know how much Tiffany cares for your teeth. Now, let her create a lasting memory for you and your loved ones!

Breathe In, Breathe Out
Your oral health is an essential part of your overall health. Knowing this, we encourage you to take a holistic view of your health habits.
And nothing is more basic for your health than breathing.
Dr. D’Andrea considers herself to be an airway-centric dentist. If you have been to our office, you know that airway and sleep health services are part of what we do.
As the world has changed, so have human anatomy and physiology. As a result, our airways, mouths, and sinuses are smaller than our ancestors were 200 years ago. This is part of the reason most people don’t have enough room for their wisdom teeth to erupt correctly and why orthodontic care is needed to address issues with crowded teeth.
Mouth breathing can have bad effects on your overall health. Knowing this, Dr. D’Andrea recommends a book on this topic by James Nestor, who has written for magazines including Outside, Scientific American, and The Atlantic.
In Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art, Nestor digs includes the culture, history, and science of breathing and how it affects our health. He explores how humans shifted from nasal breathing to mouth breathing, and why this may have lead to a rise in problems such as asthma, allergies, sleep apnea, and snoring. This book was the result of 10 years of research into this subject, which included working with scientists at Stanford University.
During your next appointment, talk to Dr. D’Andrea about the ways you can make breathing easier for yourself and your loved ones. Call Wilton Dental Associates today at 203-293-2086 or contact us online to request a visit with us.
We look forward to seeing you and your smile soon!
