We're already deep into January, hopefully you're still keeping up with your New Year's resolutions. If improving your health was on your list, did you consider your dental health?
Forming Good Habits in 2019
Congratulations to those of you who have managed to keep to your resolutions so far this year. You will probably be able to keep them for the whole year because of this. Habit forming is a powerful tool in bringing about change. How are your dental habits going? Are you managing to floss and keep sugary snacks to meal times?
There are many health benefits which can be obtained from good dental health habits, including a reduced risk of problems such as: diabetes, obesity, arthritis, heart disease, pregnancy complications, and respiratory illness, to name a few.
One very easy way to improve your dental health is a visit to the hygienist. To make this beneficial service even easier for you to access we have just reduced the price of our hygienist appointments by 10%.
Book your appointment today with one of our experienced hygienists, so you can look forward to the thought of leaving your appointment with a thoroughly clean smile.

Back to School Sports Guard
With the winter season in full swing and your children heading back to school, it may be time to consider a new sports guard to protect your child's teeth during their sporting activities.
Sports guards are created by moulding thermoplastic around the teeth and gums. This helps to safeguard their teeth when playing sports such as rugby and hockey.
Book your child in for an appointment today to ensure they have their sports guard ready for when they need it.
