Please check that any dental forms which need to be signed and returned
to the dental clinic are done so promptly. It is important to keep our
fluid intake up during these hot summer months. Water is best. Cordials,
fruit juice and fizzy drinks all have a high sugar content and are best
kept for treat times or watered down well and offered at a main meal time.
Water is great for teeth, readily available, refreshing and helps to purify
the blood and flushes out the kidneys. Cheers Bev and Jody.
