February 2016: Dental Tips, eNews & More!



 
It's important to bundle up during the chillier months of the season, but even more so to be mindful of your health. February coincides with Heart Month, an initiative to raise awareness and funds for those affected by heart disease and stroke.

At least 90% of Canadians have at least one risk factor, so make sure you are aware of the symptoms and to check up on family and friends who may be at risk.

Taking care of your teeth can also help with your heart health. Research has shown that bacteria found in gum disease can spread to the heart so make sure you brush and floss regularly.

We hope you were able to spend time with your loved ones on Valentine's Day and Family Day. At the very least we hope you enjoyed the long weekend!
