We are halfway through the summer and our office is currently closed. We will be reopening on August 20th, 2012.
We are all enjoying a little rest and recreation before the kids go back to school.
A small reminder, our TiCat contest is still going strong and it is never too late to enter. We will have another draw this Friday before we go.
Have a great summer!

|Brushing: Your Best Defense Against Plaque
"Brush your teeth... round and round" we all remember the song. It's amazing, though, how many people still use improper brushing techniques.
Brushing your teeth properly with a good tooth brush is your best line of defense against cavity-causing plaque between dental visits.
Improper brushing can be just as, if not more, harmful than plaque itself.
Brushing too hard or using an improper tooth brush can erode enamel on the sides and tops of your teeth as well as damage your gums. Don't be discouraged though, proper brushing technique is easy and rewarding.
It is recommended that you brush your teeth after every meal, and especially before your go to sleep, as bacteria will remain unchallenged for an extended period while you sleep.

Did we hear someone say LEMONADE?
What a great idea! Homemade lemonades let you control the ingredients and flavour to the taste of your guests. While there are endless options for making lemonade, here is one to get you started.
