We are pleased to now have a Panoramic Dental X-ray machine in our Lorne Park Dental Associates' office in Mississauga. This specialized unit allows us to capture one image of an entire mouth. It is helpful to our dentists as they diagnose and monitor dental issues or plan needed treatment for our patients.
Murphy the Molar is a dental mascot created in the 1970's by Dr. Samuel M. Green, the Dental Director in the Ontario Department of Health, at the time. The lovable character was the face of a program to promote better dental health in school children throughout the 1970's and 1980's. Murphy was featured in videos, commercials and on buttons and school dental screening report cards.
