July 2020: Tips, eNews & More!

 
As the weeks pass by, we've seen progress being made in regards to COVID-19. Restrictions are being lessened and businesses are starting to reopen, albeit with greater precautions.

As you may already know, our office is now open for both essential and non-essential treatments. We have and will continue to work hard to maintain the safety standards in accordance with our dental colleges and public health guidelines. Please visit our website to learn more about how we are keeping you safe during your dental visits.

As the weather is getting warmer, you may be tempted to spend more time outdoors with family and friends. However, it's important to continue following physical social distancing guidelines. Remember to keep your groups small and maintain distance from others whenever possible. Here are some outdoor activities you can do while minding health guidelines:

  • Have a picnic
  • Take a walk
  • Go to a local park or the beach.
  • Play an outdoor sport with a small group of friends
  • Read a book outdoors
  • Set up lounge chairs in your backyard and enjoy the sun!
With your continued efforts, we will continue to flatten the curve and expedite the return to normal. Our thoughts are with you, your family, and your friends as we continue to tackle these unprecedented times together.

Sincerely,



The Team at Hillcrest Dental Centre

Taking care of your mind and body can sometimes be the last thing that is prioritized. It may be difficult to put yourself first during these times, but it's important now, more than ever, to use this opportunity to change or improve your daily routines.

In this article, we hope you can find some healthy habits that you can incorporate in your daily lives during the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope these activities will help ease your worries and stress so you can have more control over your life.
