October 2015 Newsletter  


Fall is Here!

It is no wonder autumn is the favourite season of many in our office. The morning air is crisp but not cold, it is getting dark earlier but not before dinner, and comfy sweaters and scarves can come out of the closet but there's no need for winter jackets just yet!

Thanksgiving (October 12th) and Halloween (October 31st) are just around the corner. Halloween falls on a Saturday, so ghosts and goblins will be out early and all through the night. Be careful as you drive through your neighbourhood. As always, with Thanksgiving and Halloween kicking off the holiday season, remember not to overindulge too early and avoid binging too much.

Even scarier than Halloween is the approaching cold and flu season. October is Influenza Immunization Awareness Month. The flu is highly contagious and the severity of its effects can differ vastly between individuals. Whether you choose to get vaccinated or not, you can help stop the spread of the flu by avoiding people who are sick, properly covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze, washing your hands frequently, not touching your face, and - most importantly - staying home when you are sick!

What's Your Plan?

Is your dental insurance plan based on the calendar year?

If so, your coverage maximums start over on January 1st, and your unused benefits may not roll over into the New Year. That means if you don't use them, you lose them!

If we haven't seen your smile in a while, be sure to schedule an appointment today.

Have a safe and healthy month,
