Michelle Meek opened the doors to her Cross Roads business in
August 2004. What started out as a two person operation has
grown into a thriving business. The business recently outgrew
the space that was originally leased and has made a move down
Hwy 380. Still in Cross Roads, Signs by Design can now be
found at 900 North Pottershop Road (just east of the Exxon
station).

When asked, Michelle will tell you that there are 3 things that
has made her business a success. The first is her hard working,
dedicated employees. The second is the business’ strong
dedication to customer service and the third is the commitment
to produce the highest quality product at a fair price.
                                                                                  Signs by Design, inside and out.
I have been working with Michelle since we opened those doors
two and a half years ago and if you ask me, Michelle is the
reason for our success. Everybody who meets Michelle, loves
Michelle. She takes the time to get to know each and every
person that she meets and makes them feel as if they are the
most important person in the world.

Her employees are hard working and dedicated to her and the
business because she makes them feel valued and appreciated.
Everyone has a voice at Signs by Design. The business is truly
a result of a team effort.

Michelle is always the first person to volunteer whenever           Michelle Meek with some of the team. Left to Right: Luke Easley,
someone, a cause or an event needs her help. She serves on the      Colleen Cameron, Michelle Meek and Ellen Burke.

have play time and to answer the barrage of questions that inevitably comes
when children experience something new. “Why do they walk everywhere?                                     972-624-8511
Don’t they have cars?” “Do they have a Burger King?”

     When planning your trip, get your kids involved as much as possible. Give
them brochures or surf the web with them for different attractions that they
could pick from. But also, think outside the box while planning. Use different
approaches for your trip such as visiting a pen pal, researching genealogy or
even home swapping can add a unique focus. Other ideas for inexpensive
things to do, include factory tours and city parks. Also, consider finding a
unique place to stay. One of our favorite memories of the trip was the night
spent in the 12th century castle.

     While being prepared can help you through the stressful parts of traveling
with children, don’t forget to enjoy yourself in the moments you didn’t plan.
These will be the moments you always remember.

Brushing your teeth at least twice a day is essential to basic oral hygiene, but we would like to emphasize that cleaning between
your teeth on a daily bases is also a critical part of good dental care. If you are not cleaning in between your teeth, you are
leaving up to 40% of your tooth surface untouched and unclean. This means that food particles could remain on your teeth,
ready to feed naturally occurring bacteria in your mouth that could eventually lead to plaque and the road to gum disease.

     While we strongly encourage flossing to remove what your toothbrush cannot reach, there are also other options available
to people who need alternatives to dental floss. Here are some choices you may want to consider:


      INTERDENTAL BRUSHES:
      This is a type of toothbrush that has a very small tapered or cylindrical head with
      fine bristles. It is excellent for getting in and around braces and bridges and is also
      beneficial for those with widely spaced teeth or implants.

      INTERDENTAL WOODSTICKS:
      These wooden sticks help clean between your teeth while massaging your gums.

      IRRIGATION DEVICES:
       An oral irrigator is a machine that blasts a precise, pressurized stream of water to
      clean around the gum line. It can be used with water alone, or with mouth rinse.
      Note that this is not a replacement for flossing, but can be a helpful tool to clean
      around braces, bridges and implants and can aid those who find flossing difficult
      due to compromised medical states.

Ask us to explain more about these Interdental aids and about tools that make flossing a more efficient process for you.
