[dropcap]Oklahoma[/dropcap] Magazine has always focused on health as a serious subject for readers by publishing monthly health columns as well as regular features on the topic. We’re continuing that focus this month with our special section on oral health.

While many people avoid going to the dentist, oral health is important to people’s overall wellness. Many dentists are making the process more comfortable and convenient for patients. Whether you’re in need of a routine cleaning or are looking for more complex orthodontic care, our feature takes a look at the latest trends and provides a comprehensive listing of dental professionals so you can find the care you need. We’d like to offer a special thanks to the Oklahoma Dental Association for its assistance with this special section.

Oklahoma has a rich music history, and this month we take a look at two stories that form part of that colorful tapestry. From Oklahoma City, we talk to Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips about everything from the band’s new album, Oczy Mlody, to why the group has never felt the need to move out of Oklahoma. In Tulsa, we explore the origin of the Tulsa Shuffle, a drumming style heard on tracks by artists as prolific as Eric Clapton.

Finally, we’re continuing our Downtown Renaissance series with a look at businesses moving to downtown Tulsa and OKC. Many companies are choosing to move downtown to be close to the excitement in the city, and many employees are viewing that as a benefit as the cities continue to build on the “live, work, play” philosophy that is making downtown areas thrive.
