|December 2015: Tips eNews & More!
Where did the time go?
The holiday season is almost here!
With the year quickly coming to a close, it's easy to lose track of time and find yourself scrambling at the last minute to make plans with friends and family and buy gifts for the holidays. To help you avoid making the same mistakes as last year, follow these tips for a stress-free holiday season.
Plan your holiday shopping early:
Whether the gifts are big or small and the holiday dinner ham or turkey, it's never too early to plan ahead. Outline a budget and make note of everything you will need to purchase early to avoid that last minute holiday rush and dinner disaster.
Make a list and check it twice:
Write down the names of all the people you need to remember this holiday season. Whether they're receiving a gift, a card, or a dinner invitation, you don't want to forget anyone during the holidays.
Have a plan B:
While November was unseasonably warm, don't assume that this will be a continued trend in December. Be prepared for snow storms and whatever else Mother Nature might have in store for us. With road closures and flight cancellations being common during this time of year, it's always smart to budget extra travel time and make alternate travel plans.
Be mindful of your oral health:
It is okay to indulge in all the holiday treats and feasts, but don't forget about your teeth! Although travelling can disrupt your regular brushing and flossing routine, we want you to welcome the New Year with a healthy smile!

|Mind the Gap!
Are you hesitant to show your teeth when you smile?
Is your smile missing something?
Maybe even a full tooth!
Many people, for one reason or another, have lost a tooth. Reasons range from poor dental hygiene to any variety of accidents.
Whatever the reason for the missing tooth we can repair your smile and replace your tooth with a dental implant.
A dental implant is a small prosthetic post that is placed into the bone of the upper or lower jaw. The post functions as the root portion of a lost natural tooth and serves as an anchor for a replacement tooth. An artificial tooth is then attached to the post.
Dental implants look and feel exactly like natural teeth - in fact, no one other than you and your dentist will be able to tell the difference.
