  July 2014: Tips, eNews & More!

Hope you had a great Canada Day long weekend!

With summer in full swing, more and more people are takng advantage of all the farmers’ markets popping up around their communities. Shopping at farmers’ markets gives you a great opportunity to really connect with the food you buy and to learn about where it comes from and who produces it. It’s also a great way to teach kids about food, the importance of eating whole foods and cooking from scratch.

Other advantages of buying at Farmers’ Markets include:
  • Supporting local farmers and small business owners
  • Enjoying healthier and more sustainable locally grown food
  • Creating an excellent opportunity to communicate with those who grow or create the foods that you eat.  It helps to build community in your city or neighborhood. 
  • Fruits and vegetables are fresher, and therefore, taste better.
  • It’s outside! – what can be more satisfying than enjoying fresh air and sunshine while you shop for ingredients to make something delicious!
When you’re not out picking up fresh meat and produce, be sure to wear plenty of sunscreen, keep hydrated and stay cool as best you can!

We hope you are enjoying the summer!

  It's Not Too Late to Straighten Your Smile!

Orthodontics for Adults

A properly aligned smile can help aid in chewing, speaking, oral and physical health and don't forget confidence. Orthodontics have come a long way from the 'mouth full of metal' you may remember.

Traditional braces consisted of a steel band that went around each individual tooth like a ring. The wire that pulled the teeth into line was attached to a little bracket that was on the front of the steel bands.

The metal bands have been replaced with brackets that are bonded directly to the front of the teeth. These brackets are much smaller, less noticeable and more comfortable.

It's amazing how far your teeth can be moved by orthodontic procedures. Shifting your teeth into proper alignment actually causes structural changes in the surrounding bone, improving the overall look of your smile.
