June 2016: Dental Tips, eNews & More!



 
Summer is finally here, with June 21st being the official first day of summer and the longest sun lit day of the year. Whether you're drawn to the beach, the campfire or the patio we hope you make the most of the warm weather and get outside – it will be winter again before you know it.

As your children are wrapping up another school year be sure to schedule them for a dental appointment before their schedule is filled with trips, summer camps, and summer jobs.

We also want to wish a Happy Father's Day to all of the Dads on June 19th. If you're having trouble coming up with something special to do, check out this top 25 gifts list from a popular men's website. There's also no shame in sticking to the classics like golfing or fishing, ties & socks – they're classics for a reason!

Enjoy the warm weather and take care of your smile!


If it's been a while since your last checkup, contact our office to book an appointment.



Wishing you a Happy Mother's Day,

The Team at Hillcrest Dental Centre




What You Don't Know About E-Cigarettes


E-cigarettes are on the rise. It has been estimated that within 10 years e-cigarettes will outsell tobacco products since they are considered a safer and less expensive alternative to smoking. Smoking has been linked to cancer and heart disease but that doesn't mean e-cigarettes are not hazardous for your health. There has also been concern that e-cigarettes are quickly becoming a gateway drug for nonsmokers and teens.

What Are E-Cigarettes?

The battery powered electronic device contains a cartridge with e-juice (made up of vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol and liquid nicotine) and a heating element to produce vapor. Since vapor is produced rather than smoke, the amount of toxic chemicals emitted are significantly reduced. This battery powered device also reduces the odor that normally accompanies smoking.

This month we're keeping it light with honey grilled seafood. Feel free to get creative by picking up some fresh fruit or vegetables and making kabobs.
