Smile! Good health be­gins with healthy teeth

The Glengarry News - - New Year's Resolution -

If you have promised to take bet­ter care of your teeth this year, ser­vices such as those of­fered at the Moose Creek Den­tal Hy­giene Clinic can help you stick to your pledge.

Hy­gien­ist Guy­laine Souligny The­o­ret has been prac­tis­ing den­tal hy­giene since grad­u­at­ing from Al­go­nquin Col­lege in 1990.

Through­out her 25 year ca­reer she has had the priv­i­lege of work­ing with amaz­ing den­tists and den­tal teams.

How­ever, she had longed to work in­de­pen­dently. In June, 2008 that dream be­came a re­al­ity in her home­town of Moose Creek, where she opened her prac­tice in the Moose Creek Med­i­cal Cen­tre.

Her ser­vices in­clude as­sess­ment, scal­ing, pol­ish­ing and whiten­ing.

Mrs. Souligny The­o­ret is a reg­is­tered mem­ber of the Col­lege of Den­tal Hy­gien­ists of On­tario. She is also an ac­tive mem­ber of the Cana­dian Den­tal Hy­gien­ists As­so­ci­a­tion and the On­tario Den­tal Hy­gien­ists As­so­ci­a­tion.

In 2011 she joined the Den­tal Hy­giene Prac­ti­tion­ers of On­tario and is now a board mem­ber. She is also the East­ern On­tario District Di­rec­tor.

She thrives on con­tin­u­ing ed­u­ca­tion and learn­ing the new­est den­tal in­no­va­tions to bet­ter serve her pa­tients. She is en­rolled in nu­mer­ous cour­ses through­out the year.

Her lat­est pas­sion has been to travel to the West Coast to fur­ther her den­tal hy­giene knowl­edge and skills. She also loves tak­ing ad­van­tage of the beauty, scenic views and nu­mer­ous out­door ac­tiv­i­ties that Van­cou­ver and the area have to of­fer.

Oral health is an im­por­tant part of over­all health.

Good oral health con­trib­utes pos­i­tively to your phys­i­cal, men­tal and so­cial well-be­ing and to the en­joy­ment of life's pos­si­bil­i­ties, by al­low­ing you to speak, eat and so­cial­ize un­hin­dered by pain, dis­com­fort or em­bar­rass­ment.

Brush­ing and floss­ing, fol­low­ing a healthy diet, and vis­it­ing the den­tist reg­u­larly are all part of on­go­ing oral care for healthy teeth and gums.
