August 2012: Tips, eNews, and More!
Congratulations team Canada!
Our Canadian athletes gave their best efforts at the 2012 Olympic games in London. We finished a strong 13th place in the medal standings! We cheered our hearts out along with Canadian fans, friends and family from across the country who showed how awesome it is to be Canadian! A thank you goes out to our athletes who represented our country, Canada, so well!
The recent rain seems to have given us a break from the humidity as well as some well deserved water for our lawns and gardens. This has been a great summer so far with a fairly consistent forecast of "HOT and patio weather"!
Now is a great time to start looking for an indoor activity before the colder month's return. To maintain momentum we suggest looking into a league activity. After watching watching our Olympic athletes compete in their respective sports, why not give it a try yourself?
Are you headed off to school next month?
Many post secondary institutions offer health plans that include dental coverage. If you are enrolled in a post secondary program, remember to look into the coverage offered to you. Your new school schedule may keep you busy, remember to make your oral health a priority.
Have a great month,
The Team at St. Clair Dental Associates

- The results of teeth whitening are noticeable after a single visit and will be noticed by those around you. This may be a disadvantage if you are self-conscious
|Pink Ginger Lemonade
Are you having friends and family over for a get together? Spending time on the patio? Entertaining guests? It is hot, your guests are thirsty, but as you may recall, we recently advised you to stay away from serving sugary preservative filled drinks.
Did we hear someone say LEMONADE?
What a great idea! Homemade lemonades let you control the ingredients and flavour to the taste of your guests. While there are endless options for making lemonade, here is one to get you started.
