March 2016: Dental 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.

Wishing you a year filled with smiles,

The Team at Hillcrest Dental Centre
