November 2014 Newsletter   
 
It's November! How did that happen? Every year seems to fly by and as soon as November begins, we start hearing holiday music on the radio. The days get shorter and even though we're still (hopefully) at least a month away from snow, people begin to prepare for winter hibernation.

You should enjoy the month as best you can, and there are still plenty of good weather days to enjoy before the chill really starts. Here are just a few activities going on around town to keep you busy:

  • Winter Woofstock
    Visit the Direct Energy Centre for an indoor installment of Woofstock, Toronto's celebration of all things dog.

  • The Santa Claus Parade
    Santa Claus returns to the streets of Toronto, bringing a bit of early Christmas cheer with him.

  • The Gourmet Food and Wine Expo
    Visit the Metro Toronto Convention Centre to taste, buy and learn about wine, cheese and other gourmet foods.

Is it time for a cleaning or to have your dental work completed? Many dental plans are based on the calendar year, so your benefits may not roll over into the new year. It's a good idea to find time for a cleaning or checkup to ensure you get the most out of your plan. Call us today, or click here to request an appointment and we will find a time that fits your schedule.

Have a safe and healthy month,

         


 
The Signs of Oral Cancer Apple Berry Crisp
 
While hearing the term 'cancer' can be scary, early detection of pre-cancerous tissue can minimize or eliminate the potentially disfiguring effects of oral cancer and possibly save your life. Many oral cancers have a high success rate of being treated, especially when found early.

The term 'Oral Cancer' includes cancerous growths in the cheeks, lips, mouth, throat, sinus, tongue, or anywhere in the oral cavity. As with most cancers, age is the primary risk factor for oral cancer, as most people diagnosed with a form of oral cancer are over 55.

We've all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Yet many of us skip this meal or try to replace it with a prepackaged breakfast or power bar. While these bars offer a high level of convenience they also offer a high level of sugar and calories.

This month's recipe is full of fiber, vitamins, antioxidants and is low in sugar. It can be enjoyed for breakfast, dessert or a midday snack. It will also stay for a few days if covered and refrigerated allowing you to make it on the weekend and enjoy it for the first few days of the work week.
