|October 2013: Tips eNews & More!
What a beautiful time of year! We Canadians spend too much time complaining about the weather!
It's Too Hot...
It's Too Cold...
Right now feels just right!
The leaves have changed, the days are a little shorter, but hopefully there's still a long way to go before the first snowfall. It's a great time of year to go on long hikes and bike rides.
Around this time of year, we tend to turn to hot drinks like coffee, tea and hot chocolate to stay warm. While these delicious caffeinated drinks can give you an extra energy boost on these shorter days -- and a warm feeling in your belly -- they can also wreak havoc on your pearly whites!
And don't fool yourself into thinking that adding cream or milk to your coffee or tea will stain them any less!
If your favourite warm autumn drinks are staining your teeth, contact us about tooth whitening options!
Use it or Lose it!
Does your dental coverage renew each calendar year? If so, be sure to max out your benefits by making an appointment soon. Maybe you can use your remaining coverage to pay for the teeth whitening needed after indulging in all your favourite warm beverages!
Talk to our office about your coverage to determine how to get the most out of your plan. We also offer direct billing to insurance companies. Whether you're overdue or just want to get one more cleaning in before the year is out, book an appointment today!
Iron Man or Superman?
Despicable Me or Monsters Inc?
Or maybe Heisenberg from Breaking Bad?
It's that time again to start thinking about what to wear for Halloween!
Avoid the temptation of month-long snacking by waiting until the end of the month to buy your candy. Your body and your teeth will appreciate the restraint!
This year, Halloween falls on a Thursday, meaning that ghosts and goblins may be out during your commute home, so be extra careful when driving!
We wish you a great Thanksgiving and a fun-filled Halloween!
