A Message From Your Hygienists

To prevent cavities and maintain good oral health, be mindful of what you eat and how often you eat.

Changes in your mouth start the minute you eat certain foods. Bacteria in the mouth convert sugars and carbohydrates from the foods you eat to acids, and it's the acids that begin to attack the enamel on teeth, starting the tooth decay process. The more often you eat and snack, the more frequently you are exposing your teeth to the cycle of decay.

Taste and Tell..... for May

Almond Peach Green Smoothie

This smoothie is one of my favorites. It's a great way to kick start your morning and works well as a breakfast or a mid-afternoon snack.


-2 cups spinach
-2 cups Almond Milk
-2 cups sliced peaches*
-1 orange, peeled

  1. Blend spinach and Almond milk until smooth.
  2. Add remaining ingredients, and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
*Any variety of peaches or nectarines is fine. Other stone fruits like apricots, plums, and cherries can also be used if peaches aren't available.
*Use at least one frozen fruit to make it cold.
*Makes Two servings

It's important to eat right about also to keep moving, here's a list of fun physical activities for summer!

Fun Outdoor Activities
  • Try a ZUMBA class: I don't know if many have ever tried ZUMBA but it is a lot of fun and will most likely make you want to go back for more.
  • Long Hikes on Trails: Some of my favourite spots are Scanlon Creek Bradford, Fairy Lake Newmarket, and Thornton Bales Newmarket
  • Indoor Rock climbing: Toronto Climbing Academy
  • Joining a team: Whether it's soccer, Baseball, Ball hockey , tennis or basketball, make sure to stay active!
  • Rollerblading: Being near a waterfront just makes it that much more fun. Barrie, Toronto or Wasaga are great options.
Get out there and start enjoying the nicer weather approaching us!
