Dare we say it? Is spring really on the way? Is winter finally over? Sugar Fix Dental Loft is hopeful that warmer weather is right around the corner and the body numbing Polar Vortex is long gone. The locked in a box and tossed in Lake Michigan never to be seen again kind of gone.

Everyone is in the mood to get in shape for summer and spring allows us a few months to do so. Summer preparations start now. Time to soak up rays of crucial Vitamin D (use sun screen, please!). Maybe try a new hair style or shop for a new wardrobe that allows skin the exposure it deserves after being trapped under The North Face winter parkas.


Spring brings with it long lost sunshine. Sunshine brings with it happy people. What do most of us do when we are happy? Smile! The depressing Chicago winter kept tons of people inside, the arctic temperatures making the outdoors not that appealing. Sometimes even down right dangerous. Frost bite is not a good bite (pun intended). Physical activity was most likely not at the top of everyone’s list of priorities. Simply surviving took precedence over that weekly Zumba class. Chicagoans are exhausted.


Warmer weather gets runners back on the beaten path, hundreds of sneaker-clad shoes pounding the cement along Lake Shore Drive. It gets bikers back on the road, cycling past cars stuck in bumper-to-bumper rush hour traffic. Now is the time for a little self improvement. A makeover if you will. A fresh start. No plastic surgery required. Instead, all you have to do is ask yourself, “What would I like to improve about my smile for this summer?” Ah ha! Whiter and brighter teeth! Bingo.


We want to look and feel our best, right? It is basic human instinct to be drawn to what is attractive and to want to be attractive.
