April 2012: Tips, eNews, and More!
If March was any indication of how this summer is going to look maybe we should skip spring this year. On second thought, spring is a crowd pleaser among many in the office. It's not too hot, not too cold, it is kind of the baby bear of the seasons.
Spring is a time of rebirth and rejuvenation. In the past we talked about spring cleaning around the home: this year we'd like to suggest a little spring cleaning for.. yourself! When was your last visit to your family doctor for a physical, your eye doctor, your ear doctor, and wink, wink, nudge, nudge, our office.
You've got a lot going on in your busy schedule, but you should always make time for your health.
April is Oral Health Month
Regular visits to our office for cleanings and dental exams are an integral part of your health care. Your mouth often presents early warning signs of health, and contributes significantly to your comfort, confidence and overall well being.

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.

|Mac n'Cheeze Pleeze!
From spring cleaning to the endless outdoor activities we find in Ontario, the warmer temperatures are likely to get you moving. This month we wanted to share a high energy, health conscious, vegan recipe inspired by a Canadian classic...Macaroni and cheese!
Some of the ingredients in this recipe may not be readily found in your pantry. All of them should be easily found in your local grocer's organic section and all are worth having around for their nutritional value.
