Bev and Jody can be contacted at the clinic by Phoning 439-8321 (leave a message and they will return your call). A healthy diet means a healthy body. Keep treat foods for treat times. It is not how much sweet sugary foods are eaten, but how often they are eaten which causes dental decay ie. Frequency, not quantity.
