June 2013: Tips, eNews & More!
 
June 21st is the first day of summer as well as the summer solstice. It will be the longest sun lit day this year and we hope you make the most of it. If you are looking for an excuse to get outside around lunch time, try this: take a look at your shadow outdoors at noon on the 21st, it will be your shortest 'noontime' shadow of the year...That's worth a look!

Are your children on Summer Break?
A break from their schedule does not mean a break from proper oral hygiene. If they are off to camp or traveling over the upcoming weeks, make sure their next cleaning is scheduled ahead of time. That way we can ensure that they start summer off with a healthy smile.

Patio Season Smile
If you are interested in bringing out your beautiful, healthy smile for the endless photo opportunities of Patio Season, give us a call or request an appointment here. Now is a great time for us to discuss the smile of your dreams.

Reminder:
While we understand the impulses and spontaneity that the summer can bring, please remember to notify us at least 48 hours in advance by phone if a summer activity creates the need to reschedule an appointment.

Have a great summer and Happy Fathers' Day (on the 16th) to all of the dads out there,

Dr. Jordan Benedict and Team

Nancy's New Smile with Invisalign


 
Nancy, our dental receptionist is now using Invisalign. She has decided to share her experience with you!

Invisalign is essentially clear, plastic "mouthguard like trays" (aligners) that move, straighten and works wonders on your teeth in the same way traditional braces do.

I had a small diastama (gap) between my front teeth and lower crowding of my bottom teeth that I never really favoured.

Impressions, photos and when necessary xrays are taken of your teeth, then turned into 3D images. You can actually see the kind of results you will get with your recommended treatment.

My treatment is 10 to 15 months, so half way there and already can see the transformation.
