August 2013: Tips, eNews & More!
We hope you are enjoying the relaxed pace of the summer, and at the same time getting out and taking advantage of the activities that the season brings.

Have you been involved in a group sport this summer?
With the season winding down, now is the time to look for an indoor activity for the fall. If your choice of sport involves contact or strength and balance, talk to us about a custom fitted mouth guard. Above and beyond the benefits of safety and protecting your smile, some mouth guards have been shown to improve your overall sports performance.

Are you or a family member headed off to school in September?
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.

Enjoy the rest of your summer,

Dr. Jordan Benedict and Team

What's New!

Happy Birthday Dr. Benedict!
Dr. Benedict celebrated his birthday this month. We had a little surprise for him, including this birthday cake. Don't worry, we brushed & flossed as soon as we ate our cake.

Don't forget to wish him a happy birthday during your next visit at Port Hope Dental if you haven't already.

Sedation Dentistry allows us to care for your oral health needs, while you are relaxed, under supervised sedation. Sedation Dentistry can be used for patients with dental anxiety or other conditions.
