October 2011 - eNews, Tips, and More!


Autumn is here!

 
Autumn seems to be the season of choice of many in our office. The morning air is crisp, but not cold, it's getting dark earlier, but not before dinner, warmer clothes return to the closet but there's no need for heavy jackets...yet!

Scarier than Halloween, cold and flu season is approaching. October is Influenza Immunization Awareness Month. The flu is highly contagious and its effects can range vastly in severity between individuals. Consult your physician and get vaccinated if possible. Whether you get vaccinated or not you can help stop the spread of the flu by avoiding people who are sick, properly covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze, washing your hands frequently, avoid touching your mouth, eyes and nose and stay home when you are sick!

Use it or Lose it!

Your dental coverage is most likely based on the calendar year!
That means that your coverage maximums start over on January 1. Usually your unused benefits will not extend into 2012.

This means, If you need treatment and you don't use them this year they will go to waste!

If we haven't seen your smile in a while or you have treatment pending, call us to book an appointment or better request an appointment


Have a safe and healthy month!

Happy Halloween! Brush Brush Brush.

 
Whether you have little ghost and goblins at home or not, the lure of Halloween candy and treats will be all around this month. If you do have young ones, there are a few tips we can offer before their inevitable increase of candy consumption.

For Safety:
Inspect any candy received during trick or treating adventures.

For Health:
Limit the amount of sweets they consume.
Ensure they eat a full, healthy meal before they venture out (if they are not hungry, they will be less likely to sneak too many treats during their journey).

Baked Cinnamon Apples

Sugar, spice and spectacular are the three words that we use to describe the month of October. The leaves are colourful, apple picking is giving way to pumpkin season and warming spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger capture our senses.

Let's face it; sugar is what makes October so popular!

If you need to satisfy your sweet tooth, there are countless alternatives to the empty calorie treats October is renowned for.

This month we are featuring a delicious fall recipe for cinnamon baked apples! They are naturally sweet, full of fibre and can be quite visually appealing when topped with maple syrup, brown rice syrup, raisins and some nuts.

Baked, glazed apples sprinkled with cinnamon or ginger can be enjoyed as a dessert, a snack or even for breakfast.
