First Post of the New Year

Daniel Balaze, DMD, FAGD, Dentist in Laguna Niguel, CA 92677

New Year, New Blog. We Love Laguna Niguel, and We Are Going to Share It.

Can I make a confession?
I’m a sucker for resolutions.
In years past, I’d have a list of 10 or more things I wanted to do in the new year.  As I’ve learned about myself and the shortcomings of human behavior, that list is now shortened into one single theme for the year.
This year, my theme is connection.
I want to do my very best to increase the connection between myself and the most important people in my life. And each one of you, our patients, falls into that group of very important people. Of course, we get to connect when you’re here in the office. How can we connect when you’re not here, though?
Our website, in combination with a quarterly newsletter seems like the very best way to do that. Of course, we will update our social followings that we’ve published something new.
To give you an idea of what you can look forward to finding here – I’ve decided that most of these updates will fall into one of a few categories.

Small Business Finds In and Around Laguna Niguel

I love Laguna Niguel. In part, because of all of the amazing small businesses that are here. From Eateries to Eye-wear and everything in between, Laguna Niguel seems to have it.  And, as a small business owner, I know what an honor it is when people are referred to us. If I can help increase awareness for some of our favorite places, I’m happy to do so.

Local News

There are also lots of things going on in our city! Especially during this time of unpredictability, it is important to share what is happening here in our community. From where we might be able to get a vaccine for COVID-19, to the local elections, 5Ks, and charity events – there are things that will be relevant to health and wellness in the news.

Dental and Medical News

This goes without saying, but there are a lot of things that have changed in medicine and dental medicine recently.  I will do my best to update you on what you might want to be paying attention to in the world of medicine.

Practice News

We have had plenty of changes here as well! As we introduce new services and technology, new vendors and even events in our personal lives, you’ll be able to read about them here.
My hope is to provide you with an update every week. Some weeks, maybe more, others less – but my goal is to push that publish button at least 50 times this year.
With that, I wish you a very connected, happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
Yours in health,
Dr. Balaze
