| September 2013: Tips, eNews & More!
Back to School!
Believe it or not, the first day of autumn is already behind us. Autumn is a wonderful season which offers many outdoor and indoor activities to keep you active. It also means the kids are back in school!
Are You in Autumn Mode?
Perhaps it's the shorter days or maybe the self-imposed routine, but everyone seems to be on a mission to get... somewhere. For many of us, autumn feels more demanding than summer. Real or imagined, the added pressure can contribute to stress. While the immediate links may not be obvious, stress and oral health are related. Stress has been linked to bruxism (grinding and clenching), canker sores and even gum disease.
Relax. Breathe. Start your day off with breakfast. Think positively about the day while you brush your teeth and floss in the morning. These two to five minutes can help you to reduce stress as well as ward off some of the effects of stress on your oral health.
Time for Your Cleaning
Is it time for a cleaning or to have unfinished dental work completed?
If your dental benefits are based on the calendar year, your maximums may not roll over into the New Year. Our calendar fills up quickly this time of year, so we encourage you to call today if you need an appointment before the New Year.
Have a safe and healthy month,
Dr. Tsang and Team
| Your Comfort is our Priority
At our offices we often hear stories of childhood experiences at the dentist. Some are heart warming, such as the Muppets toothbrush that you still keep unopened in your
top drawer, or how your cavity-free smile is still posted in the waiting room. Others aren't as apt to provoke your winning smile. We can't blame you, the dental office
can be a confusing place in your youth: drills, clamps, needles!
Does the very mention of these words make you uneasy?
Try and remember your last visit to our offices: we're certain that pain is low on the list of your recollections. Dentistry has come a long way in providing comfort and
a low stress environment for patients.
At our office, your comfort, health and safety are all priorities.

| Breakfast in a Pinch?
Are you looking for a breakfast/snack idea that you can make once and reach for in a pinch?
Granola is the answer!
Homemade granola is a tasty and healthy treat that can compliment your breakfast or work as a snack on its own. Making granola at home allows you to control the ingredients and create it to taste, rather than store bought creations that may contain preservatives and fillers that you don't want or need in your diet.
