August 2016 Office News and More!

With July in the books we hope you have been getting the most out of summer! While we've had to endure record-setting heat over the last few weeks, August is expected to be a little more comfortable, leaving you with no excuses to stay indoors. With events like the Canadian National Exhibition, Caribana and Taste of the Danforth, filling your calendar will be the least of your worries.

While the nice weather continues until October, August often feels like the last month of summer with kids heading back to school in September. If you have children we suggest booking an appointment for a cleaning before schedules fill up with after school activities and clubs. If you are heading off to college or university, don’t forget to look into your school's dental coverage. Make sure you maintain good oral health while in school and consider scheduling an appointment to get your smile in shape for your first day of class.
