Thanks Carla and All the Best,

As many of you know, Carla has been with us this past year while Kate was on maternity leave. This is Carla's last week with us and we just wanted to thank her for taking care of our patient's hygiene needs over this past year. We'd also like to wish her all the best in her future endeavours.

Dr. Baksh, Rayhana and Chris

Get Snack Smart with your kids

  • Limit the number of times a day your child eats or drinks sugars
  • Avoid sugary treats that stay in the mouth for a long time like hard candy or lollipops
  • Avoid soft, sticky sweets that get stuck in your child’s teeth
  • Serve sweets for dessert while there is still plenty of saliva in your child’s mouth to wash away the sugars
  • Serve juice and milk during or at the end of mealtime. Drink water between meals
  • Serve vegetables, cheese, nuts or seeds for snacks
  • Have your child brush her teeth at least twice a day and before going to bed
