|Congratulations team Canada!
Our Canadian athletes gave their best efforts at the 2012 Olympic games in London. We finished a strong 13th place in the medal standings! We cheered our hearts out along with Canadian fans, friends and family from across the country who showed how awesome it is to be Canadian! A thank you goes out to our athletes who represented our country, Canada, so well!
The recent rain seems to have given us a break from the humidity as well as some well deserved water for our lawns and gardens. This has been a great summer so far with a fairly consistent forecast of "HOT and patio weather"!
Now is a great time to start looking for an indoor activity before the colder month's return. To maintain momentum we suggest looking into a league activity. After watching watching our Olympic athletes compete in their respective sports, why not give it a try yourself?
Are you headed off to school next month?
Many post secondary institutions offer health plans that include dental coverage. If you are enrolled in a post secondary program, remember to look into the coverage offered to you. Your new school schedule may keep you busy, remember to make your oral health a priority.
Have a great month,

When you look at pictures do you ever wish your teeth were straighter,
whiter, more aligned? Cosmetic dentistry allows dentists to perform
porcelain veneer 'smile makeovers' which can address all of these issues.
We are delighted to be able to offer this revolutionary technique to our
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are custom, porcelain facings that are bonded to the
front surfaces of your teeth to cover any imperfections and fix your
smile. The veneers are very thin, only about 1 mm thick. That same
thickness is "smoothed" off the natural tooth surface so when the veneer
is bonded to the tooth, the tooth feels and looks the same thickness as
before. Uneven, discoloured, or even damaged teeth can be restored or
repaired using this procedure.

|Pink Ginger Lemonade
Are you having friends and family over for a get together? Spending time on the patio? Entertaining guests? It is hot, your guests are thirsty, but as you may recall, we recently advised you to stay away from serving sugary preservative filled drinks.
Did we hear someone say LEMONADE?
What a great idea! Homemade lemonades let you control the ingredients and flavour to the taste of your guests. While there are endless options for making lemonade, here is one to get you started.
