Having a Father-Son Experience

As a kid I never took care of my shoes. I would actually destroy my shoes. My mom and grandma would grab my white gym shoes and wash them and then scrub that white shoe polish that looked like liquid paper.

I hated when they did that. I liked that worn and distressed look.

In their eyes, I looked like a homeless kid and they felt that I had to present myself in an organized and clean manner.

I didn’t begin to appreciate taking care of my shoes until in high school. I got a job at Carson Pirie Scott, selling shoes.

As a shoe salesman, my manager always stressed that if we took care of our shoes with shoe trees and a regular polish, the shoes would last longer.

Now I try to get my shoes shined pretty regularly.

My son just got a pair of dress shoes for school. He loves wearing them and now he wants to get his shoes shined with me.

This last Sunday, we went to Nordstrom and had our first father-son shoe shine.

He thought it was pretty cool and got a big kick out of acting like an adult. I’ve been doing this type of care to my shoes and have noticed that they last a pretty long time before I need new ones.

In dentistry, there is the similar concept.

The more we take care of our teeth, the longer they last.

This means: brushing 2 times per day, flossing once per day, and having regular check up and cleanings at least every 6 months.

These visits are an important part of your oral health.

X-rays to check for cavities and bone loss, an oral cancer screening to check for abnormal tissue, and a gum evaluation to prevent or identify gum disease.

All these things help to prolong your beautiful, natural smile for as long as possible. And catch any problems early on, before they become irreversible.

If we have reached out to you, it’s because you are due.

Floss Like a Madman!Emilio “Shoe Care 101” Couret

World-Class Chicago, IL, Dentist, Dr. Emilio Couret for Exceptional Dental Care
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Couret for my dental needs for years–before he began his own office even. From Day 1–he was amazing. After years with no dental insurance, I needed a lot of work done, and was insanely anxious. Dr. Couret is an expert at putting you at ease and making you feel at home. And he seems to take the time needed to ensure his staff does the same. My teeth look amazing, and you will not find a more caring, comforting team in Chicago. They take the time to not just check your teeth, but to check of any issues that might arise, including cancers that other doctors may overlook. My husband and I are in the middle of planning a long-distance move, and I can’t even begin to think about finding a new dentist. Especially one that can live up to the standard Dr. Couret and his team have set.”
