February Newsletter

We hope everybody is surviving all of this crazy winter weather!  Try and remember that we are now one more day closer to spring :)

Below you'll find our most recent Practice Newsletter. In this issue, we've included articles on our practice's School Education Initiative (Did you know that February is Dental Health Awareness Month?), an interesting article on Thumb Sucking, some suggestions on Healthy Snacking (although we agree that Conversation Hearts are good...everything is better in moderation) and, finally, a brief article about how our practice has recently joined the Altus Dental Network.  As always, we welcome any suggestions and feedback you may have.

Hope you enjoy this issue! And remember...think spring :)
