Happy 150th Canada!
On Saturday the 1st, Canada celebrated its 150th birthday, and we hope you enjoyed a day filled with joy, good friends, and family. Canada Day has passed, but that doesn't mean the celebrations should cease too. Consider all of July an opportunity to celebrate this country's momentous birthday, but remember to keep your oral health in mind as you do - it can be easy to neglect your teeth with all the summer food and drinks, and of course, a day filled with fun activities!
And by the end of those fun days, kids might be too tired to remember to brush their teeth before bed. But as with most holidays and celebrations, sweet foods and sugary drinks are common. Make sure to remind your kids of the importance of maintaining proper dental hygiene throughout the summer - and the rest of the year, of course!
Out With Spring, In With Summer
July is here, and so is the summer sun. It is critical to stay hydrated on a hot day - not to mention, drinking plenty of water is also good for your oral health. Practice holistic self-care by drinking lots of water, applying sunscreen outdoors, and wearing protective garments to keep the sun's damage away (hats, sunglasses, etc).
Wishing you a safe and happy summer!
