August 2016: Dental Tips, eNews & More!

With August coming to a close it's important that you get out and enjoy the summer before it's too late! While we've had to endure record-setting heat over the last month, the weather has been a little more comfortable lately, leaving you with no excuses to stay indoors. Have you been to the Zoo? What about Canada's Wonderland? There's still time to enjoy what the GTA has to offer!

While summer official runs until September 22nd, August often feels like the last month of the season with kids heading back to school. If you have children we suggest booking an appointment for a cleaning before schedules fill up with after school activities and clubs. If you are heading off to college or university, don't forget to look into your school's dental coverage. Make sure you maintain good oral health while in school and consider scheduling an appointment to get your smile in shape for your first day of class.
