|Office Renovations @ Haas Dental Centre
As a way to celebrate our 12 year anniversary at our practice, we're excited to announce that there will be some new changes at our office. We like to think of it as a minor facelift!
We're really happy about these changes taking place and hope our patients will enjoy them too.
|Dr. Schacht's trip to Southeast Asia
Dr. Schacht recently had the chance to go on a whirlwind tour of Southeast Asia.
In three weeks he got the chance to visit Cambodia, Thailand, and Vietnam with a couple of his close friends.
He enjoyed spending time in all of these different countries, especially Vietnam where he got the chance to learn many interesting facts about the Vietnam War. All of the people there were very nice and friendly.
It was certainly a trip of a lifetime!
Make sure to check out our November newsletter for more of Dr. Schacht's amazing vacation photos!
|Are Your Favourite Autumn Drinks Affecting Your Teeth?
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. 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 and fun-filled Halloween!

|Straighter Teeth without Traditional Orthodontics!
Do you ever wish your teeth were straighter?
Will braces get in the way of your routine, your work, your look?
If an alternative were available, would you be interested?
At our office we are proud to offer our patients Invisalign. Invisalign is a revolutionary alternative to traditional braces and a great tool in Adult Orthodontics. The Invisalign system allows us to offer you a more beautiful smile, without the inconveniences and aesthetic hassles associated with braces.
Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to guide your teeth into a proper, straight and more appealing alignment.

|Yam Pecan Loaf
Classic Pumpkin Pie
Pumpkin Spice Lattes
...Even Pumpkin Donuts at Timmies!
It is Halloween season, and that means you're likely bombarded with tons and tons of pumpkin-related recipes and specials. Well, we decided to resist the urge to share yet another pumpkin recipe. We're sure you have plenty of those.
Instead, we have decided to share a unique, tasty, and warm meal that is great for a snack on a crisp afternoon or as part of a hearty breakfast to get your day started off well. While this meal is vegan, there are certainly no compromises in this delicious recipe!
