The Cleveland Indians and Dentistry

April 24th, 2014

I recently had the opportunity, on WKYC Channel 3′s “Golden Opportunities,”  to discuss the similarities between dental care and baseball, highlighting the Cleveland Indians in both Cactus League Spring Training and the regular season, including the Indians’ home opener. Having attended a few days of Spring Training in Arizona this March and the opener, I got to see both minor and major league prospects; in dentistry, we can make a difference with both minor and major league changes, depending upon a patient’s needs, budget, and time.

Using Major League Baseball as a metaphor for dental care, we talked about planning, having the basics in place, and executing to achieve excellence. We hope that, like the Indians, we’ll have a good year and many good years in the future. Our World Series is the happiness on our patients’ faces when they have an outcome that brings them many smiles!

“You’ve Got Mail” Voice Actor Retires from WKYC

April 21st, 2014


You might not have heard of Elwood Edwards, but if you’re over the age of 20, you heard his voice way more often than you realize. Edwards, 64, was the voice behind AOL’s “You’ve Got Mail,” and anytime you logged into your AOL account he was the one that greeted you.

Twenty-five years ago Edwards recorded four phrases for AOL, never realizing how iconic they were to become:

  • You’ve Got Mail
  • Welcome
  • File’s Done
  • Goodbye

I’ve come to know Edwards over the years as I’ve made regular appearances on WKYC’s “Golden Opportunities” – he’s a cameraman and makes graphics for the Channel 3 website – and would like to congratulate him on his retirement from WKYC Channel 3. Announcing his retirement, he was then featured on The Today Show, an organization for which he hopes to do voiceovers.

Congratulations on retirement, Elmore!

Lost 27 lbs After Dental Work!

You have so changed my life! I’m the happiest I’ve ever been.

I’ve had so many people comment on I have a nice smile…others I haven’t seen in years can’t quite pinpoint what’s different and they comment on my hair, weight, skin…

You didn’t tell me one of the benefits of all my dental work was I was going to lose 27 pounds!! I eat so much healthier now…brush and floss all the time, and anyone who will listen I tell them the same thing…brush and floss.

Dr. Marsh, you are truly the best!! Thanks for everything!

Thank you,

I am so very grateful for the unbelievable change in the appearance of my teeth. I would never have believed that you would be able to do anything for me, especially at my age. I have always been so very self conscious because of my teeth. I am grateful to God that I was able to find you. You are a very gifted and kind doctor. Your assistants are wonderful and professional.

God bless you always,

Stains Can Be Pains

March 25th, 2014

Recently, a patient who has a gorgeous smile mentioned that her teeth are staining quite a bit.  When asked about her oral habits -eating and drinking – she said that she became a “juicer” when she bought a Vitamix and now eats/drinks primarily vegetables. Though she has porcelain veneers and crowns, they, too, can stain extrinsically (stains on the outside, not on the inside).

This was easily remedied by having her teeth polished by one of our hygienists using a special porcelain polishing paste every two to three months; similarly, coffee and tea can produce similar extrinsic stains that can be eliminated. Most at-home toothpastes, including Arm and Hammer, Crest and Colgate can help, but are insufficient for many discolorations.

In-office bleaching with Zoom and maintenance with Nite White gel does help. If we can help or answer your questions, please give us a call! (440) 461-1003

Spring Training Means Spring Cleaning!

March 20th, 2014

As many of you know, I’m a big fan of Major League Baseball, the Cleveland Indians in particular. And spring training and spring cleaning go hand-in-hand, and I’m not talking about straightening out your basement!

Now’s the perfect time to come in and see our dental hygienists Amy, Debbie, Barbara, Jill, or Shelley.  (Barbara, Jill, and Shelley are part-time). They will make themselves available for you and your family, including your kids who are off for spring break (and teachers, too!).

Let’s get a good start on spring, and maybe we’ll make it to the World Series – with clean teeth!

Cleveland Smiles Customer SatisfactionThe Best Thing that Ever Happened to Me

My visit to Dr. Marsh’s office was the best thing that ever happened to me. After numerous dentists told me I would need dentures, he told me he could rebuild my smile denture free. After about 4 visits to his office, my teeth were done and looked great. 2 years later, no problems and many compliments on my smile. I would highly recommend Dr. Marsh and his team for all your dental needs. And on top of that, it was completely pain free!

Thank you,

The Truth About Toothbrushes

February 13th, 2014

We get lots of questions about toothbrushes and toothpastes, with all of the advertisements about them on TV. I’ll try and clarify things as much as possible, but please know that you’re welcome to ask our dental hygienists at your next appointment or by phone.

The key, with any toothbrush, is to remove the food particles after eating – especially in the half-hour or so after the meal, when the bacteria in our mouths “feed” off the food creating acids that attack the teeth. “Spinbrushes” and ultrasonic brushes, like the “Sonicare,” are also effective and are especially valuable for patients with arthritis and/or limited arm or finger movement.

Our office recommends a baking soda toothpaste, like those made by Arm and Hammer or Crest, for use during the day. For patients who have a history of decay and/or dry mouth, which encourage cavities and gum disease, we recommend a toothpaste with a high concentration of fluoride, like “Prevident 5000,”  a Colgate product.

I hope this clarifies things for our patients and friends.  Remember, we are always here for your questions or comments, either by calling us at 1-440-461-1003, or by emailing us at
