Pool safety with Newhart Orthodontics

August 12th, 2011

Summer is here, and with summer comes lots of swimming! Our team at Newhart Orthodontics found some helpful pool safety tips that we’d like to share with you, courtesy of our friends at the American Association of Pediatricians.

* Install a fence at least four-feet high around all four sides of the pool. The fence should not have openings or protrusions that a young child could use to get over, under, or through.

* Make sure pool gates open out from the pool, and self-close and self-latch at a height children can’t reach.

* Never leave children alone in or near the pool, even for a moment.

* Keep rescue equipment (a shepherd’s hook – a long pole with a hook on the end – and life preserver) and a portable telephone near the pool. Choose a shepherd’s hook and other rescue equipment made of fiberglass or other materials that do not conduct electricity.

* Avoid inflatable swimming aids such as “floaties.” They are not a substitute for approved life vests and can give children a false sense of security.

* Children may not be developmentally ready for swim lessons until after their fourth birthday. Swim programs for children under 4 should not be seen as a way to decrease the risk of drowning.

* Whenever infants or toddlers are in or around water, an adult should be within arm’s length, providing “touch supervision.”

Summer Reading with Newhart Orthodontics

July 1st, 2011

Does Reading Stimulate Ideas and Dreams for You?
A lot of people travel in the summer or take some time for much-needed R&R on the hammock or at the beach.  This is also a great time to read! I have always found reading to be fun and intellectually stimulating. Also, I always get great ideas about my own life when I read, sometimes even finding new and creative solutions to problems.

How about you? Have you had any experiences similar to mine? What happens to you when you read? I think it magically help to keep you intellect and emotions healthy and stimulated!! So have fun this summer and read something FUN!

Book Suggestions for the Summer?
Would you recommend any books to read? What are your all-time favorites? What’s on your summer reading list? Are there any reading programs or events in your community this summer you would recommend for children?
