|August 2012: Tips, eNews & More!
Apparently records really were made to be broken. With temperatures soaring and rain fall being minimal this has been another summer for the books. Hopefully the record breaking spirit continues to rub off on our Canadian athletes in London. If the weather and event scheduling work out, try to grab lunch on a local patio with an outdoor TV and cheer on our athletes!
Warm weather and watching athletes at their peak are great motivators to stay active. While you may not be headed to Rio for the 2016 games, perhaps you may take interest in one of the many sports featured in the Olympics. Training for a sport is a great way to maintain fitness as well as mental focus. If a sport catches your eye, look into local leagues and facilities, there is no better day than today to start!
Are you headed off to school next month?
Many post secondary institutions offer health plans that include dental coverage. If you are enrolled in a post secondary program, remember to look into the coverage offered to you. Your new school schedule may keep you busy, remember to make your oral health a priority.
Have a great month,

|Dental Implants: 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.

|Pink Ginger Lemonade
Are you having friends and family over for a get together? Spending time on the patio? Entertaining guests? It is hot, your guests are thirsty, but as you may recall, we recently advised you to stay away from serving sugary preservative filled drinks.
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.
