October 2012: Tips, eNews & More!
 
Autumn is the favourite season for many of us. The brisk morning air makes for a perfect walk before we head to work, while the colourful leaf displays seem a fair trade for the shorter days.

Halloween (October 31) is just around the corner. Halloween falls on a Wednesday, meaning that ghosts and goblins may be out early in the evening, so be careful as you head home from work or school. Whether you are hosting a get together, attending one, or are just looking for a treat, we've included a recipe that uses pumpkin!

What's Your Dental Plan?
Is your dental plan based on the calendar year? If so, your coverage maximums start over on January 1 and your unused benefits may not roll over into the new year. That means if you don't use them, you lose them! If we haven't seen your smile in a while, click here to schedule an appointment in time to benefit from your Plan.

 
October is Orthodontic Health Month
Straight teeth and proper bite alignment are more important than just a beautiful smile. Straight teeth are essential to gum health, speech, proper chewing and more. Bite alignment contributes to jaw comfort, facial appearance and oral hygiene - and the list goes on. It is never too late to straighten your teeth and correct your bite. We would be pleased to discuss the health and beauty aspects of your mouth. Feel free to request a consultation today!

Remember to be extra careful on the roads and have a safe and healthy month.

The Spa Dent teeth whitening system is now available at Dr. Jordan Benedict's Port Hope Dental Office. With this in-office whitening system, teeth may whiten 2 - 8 shades in as little as 30 minutes. Spa Dent whitening uses a cool blue and red LED light that activates the product, whitening your teeth deeper and faster for longer lasting results. There is virtually no sensitivity.

We recommend that you get your teeth cleaned before getting the whitening done for best results. Click here!
