| March 2016: Tips, eNews & More!
Can you believe March break is just around the corner?
While you may not get to enjoy a week off, your children do. What better time to schedule a dental cleaning? This is a busy time of year for children's check-ups so plan ahead and schedule an appointment today!
March is also National Nutrition Month
The theme for 2016 is "Make Small Changes - One Meal at a Time". Diets and workout routines are often abandoned because people expect changes to happen overnight. Don't make the mistake of setting the bar too high. Plan for small improvements each step of the way so you can move towards your personal finish line.
Proper nutrition is integral to overall health and vitality. The foods you choose affect your oral health from the moment you put them in your mouth. Visit www.dietitians.ca to learn more about National Nutrition Month and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

|Dental Tip: Change Your Brush!
Next time you brush your teeth take a closer look at your brush and ask yourself...
"Is it time to to change my tooth brush?"
If the ends are starting to fray or the bristles are starting to lose their shape, its time for a new brush.
We recommend a soft bristled brush as it is easier on your gums and enamel yet effective enough to remove daily buildup and food particles. The head size and brush shape are also important. You should be able to maneuver the brush comfortably around your mouth, especially when brushing around and behind your back teeth.
It is recommended that you change your toothbrush at least every four months, so if you can't remember when you last changed your tooth brush...perhaps today is a good day.
