October 2019: Tips, eNews & More!
 
Colours changing and temperatures dropping – these scenic views are a great time for cozy long walks with hot cups of coffee – or everything pumpkin spiced? Even though the chilly temperature is not something to look forward to, October does have a lot to offer. From leaves changing colours to enjoying a delicious Thanksgiving feast, or secretly indulging in the Halloween candies – we are all about this excitement!

But remember, as you treat yourself to these delicacies, do not forget about your healthy smile. Make sure you brush and floss your teeth twice a day, drink plenty of water, and come in for a check-up to stay on top of your oral health.

As this is also the month of giving thanks – we would like to thank you for choosing us as your dental care provider and letting us take care of you and your family's oral health.

Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving and a fun-filled Halloween,


The Team at Hillcrest Dental Centre
