|November 2013: Tips, eNews & More!
While we're all nursing our candy hangovers from Halloween, the leaves have already changed. Time sure flies! But before we get carried away and start thinking about the holiday season and New Year's, we
should take the time in November to get things done and gear up for winter!
Is it time for a cleaning or to have your dental work completed?
If your dental benefits are based on the calendar year, your maximums may not roll over into the New Year. If you don't use them they may go to waste.
Call us today or click here to request an appointment and we will find a time that fits your schedule.
Have a safe and healthy month,
Dr. Jordan Benedict and Team
Happy Birthday Dr. Liz!
On Wednesday October 23, Dr. Benedict and his team celebrated Dr. Liz’s birthday with a delicious lunch at Olympus Burger in Port Hope. We wished her well and shared lots of laughs. Good times! Click here for more pictures.
Help Us Help Others
The holiday season is just around the corner and our team is holding a food drive in support of our local food bank.
We are pleased to be collecting non-perishable foods, canned goods, and unopened toys between October 1st and December 13th, 2013.
Check out photos from last year's drive!
Port Hope Dental's 9th Anniversary - Touchdown!

We were lucky enough to have a visit from 2 Argo cheerleaders and some of us had our pics taken with them as well. We had an awesome dinner – yum!

|A Message from Your Admin Team
At Port Hope Dental, we strive to provide our patients with the best possible treatment options. When it comes to financing dental treatments, we often get questions about individual insurance coverage.
There are thousands of different insurance plans out there and it is impossible for us to know what coverage your employer has negotiated with the insurance company on your behalf. We encourage patients to familiarize themselves with their insurance plans and its possible limitations.
Also note, if you are not accompanying your children - even if they are over 18 - to their dental appointment, it is necessary for you to call and give consent for us to take xrays, process insurance claims and payment on your account.
Remember, your insurance plan is there to assist you in paying for dental care, not to dictate the treatment that is required.

Guacamole with peas, who knew they'd make a perfect pair? Why with peas? Not only do peas give this dip a nice texture, they also add fibre, protein and vitamins.
Avocados are full of healthy essential fats, making them extremely satisfying and a great base for dip. There are so many great ways to enjoy this delicious guacamole. Try it with corn chips, on sprouted bread, in a wrap or topped on a salad!
