The Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness sponsors an annual National Employee Health and Fitness Day. Brian S. Nylaan, D.D.S. said, “We firmly believe health and fitness should be an everyday thing, and our office wants to do its part in making that happen.” Dr. Nylaan’s office is offering a complimentary Zumba class, held Tuesday evenings, May 29 through September 4 at 7 p.m., led by instructor Kate Rehmus of Live Dance Move. This class is free and open to the general public. A charity will be featured each week. Jingle skirts will be available for use with a $5 donation to the featured charity. Donations received during the May 29 class will benefit the Grand Rapids Jaycees. The June 5 class will benefit Crash’s Landing and the June 12 class will benefit the Northview Band Boosters. Dr. Nylaan’s office raised over $2,500 for local charities in 2011. Their goal for 2012 is to raise even more funds for local charities through the Zumba event. Zumba is an exhilarating, effective, easy-to-follow, Latin-inspired, calorie-burning, dance-fitness party that’s moving millions of people toward joy and health. “Best time I have ever had working out,” said Patty Sweetland of Gowen. “Who would of thought that a 60-year-old would have had so much fun tonight doing Zumba! I swear I smiled the whole time,” said Pat Smith of Rockford. Nylaan said, “Your dental office should not be a place for just pretty smiles, but where attention is paid to the relationship between a healthy mouth and a healthy body.” Classes are held in the front parking lot of Dr. Nylaan’s dental office at 5011 Plainfield Ave. NE, Grand Rapids. Join in for the fun and the health of it!

Local dentist takes stand against sweets this Halloween “Our goal is to collect a half ton of candy,” said Dr. Nylaan. Dr. Nylaan is leading this anti-decay movement by inviting the tooth fairy to his office to give out dollars, toothbrushes and toys in exchange for cavity-provoking candy. Also, the first 100 children will be offered dental Toothprints. Dental Toothprints are a thermoplastic wafer, which records the size and shape of a child’s teeth, the tooth position within the arch, and the relationship between upper and lower jaws. Like fingerprints, dental imprints are unique to every person, so bite impressions serve an accurate method of identification. Toothprints impression also captures saliva, which provides a DNA sample. Candy will be exchanged for cash at the office of Brian S. Nylaan, D.D.S. on Monday, Nov. 1 from 3 to 6 p.m. Children will receive one dollar for each pound of candy. Candy must be unopened. All of the collected candy will then be shipped to soldiers serving in the Middle East through the Operation Gratitude program. “Kids can still have all of the fun of trick-or-treating, and now their piggy banks will benefit as well. Plus, the toothbrushes and goodie bags we’re giving out are really cool,” said Dr. Nylaan. Dr. Nylaan offers general family dental care as well as cosmetic procedures and implant placement. The dental office can provide more information at (616) 361-7317 or online at www.nylaandental.com.
