Snow White – Durham Farm and Rural Resources

Uxbridge Family Dentistry is pleased to be a Gold Sponsor for “Snow White” – a fundraiser for Durham Farm and Rural Family Resources (DFRFR), which is a non-profit organization that provides children with learning resources in the Durham region.  One such resource is the Early Years Centre, which I have made use of weekly with our son, Kai.  At the Uxbridge location, there is a plethora of toys, books, and play centres for the children.  As well, a lactation consultant and speech pathologist are available every month for free consultations and advice.  Parents of young children in the Durham region are ever so fortunate to have access to four Early Year centres in Uxbridge, Beaverton, Cannington, and Sunderland.  The centres provide a place for kids to interact with peers, learn through play, and also allows parents to meet others in the community.  All centres are provided free of charge thanks to DFRFR.

The Dufflebag Theatre Company will be performing Snow White at Uxbridge Public School to raise funds for Durham Farm and Rural Family Resources

Uxbridge Family Dentistry – 2014 in review

It’s been such a busy year that we’ve only published once in 2014, with the introduction of our new associate joining our growing practice. So our New Year’s resolution for next year is to post more than once in 2015 – That shouldn’t be too difficult to beat =).  We’ve got so many new things planned at our office, including upgrading our dental software to help make things run more efficiently and eventually leading to a paperless, more environmentally friendly practice.  We’ll also be partnering once again with The Rotary Club of Uxbridge in March 2015 for BRUSHAMANIA, visiting at least 5 different schools in the Uxbridge township. It seems like clinical cases are a big interest to most of our readers, so we’ll share some more of those in the months ahead.

So stay tuned and thanks for following our blog.  And remember you can always find more information about our practice at, follow us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.

Wishing everyone a safe and Happy New Year!

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for our blog. Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 28,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 10 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Brush-A-Mania is coming to Uxbridge!

April is a very special month in Canada – It is Oral Health Month.  To help spread awareness of this important month and to promote good oral health, Uxbridge Family Dentistry and The Rotary Club of Uxbridge will be running a fun and interactive educational event called Brush-A-Mania at three elementary schools in the Uxbridge region.

Brush-a-mania is a not-for-profit program designed to promote oral health and awareness among young children. It was started in 2001 by the the Rotary Club of Toronto – Don Mills and has already reached over 390,000 students.

Teams of five volunteers will be holding assemblies at Goodwood Public School, Joseph Gould Public School, and Uxbridge Public School on March 19March 26, and March 28, respectively.  These assemblies are aimed at teaching kids in Junior Kindergarten to Grade 3 about the importance of good oral hygiene, and establishing proper brushing and flossing techniques early on.  Approximately 600 children will be reached through these assemblies.

Thanks to a generous grant from The Durham Ontario Dental Society, each child will receive a toothbrush, toothpaste, and a special booklet to help them keep track of their brushing habits during the month of April. When the students return their completed booklets to their teachers, they will receive a certificate and official Brushamania sticker acknowledging their hard work.

Supplies for this year’s Brush-A-Mania program in Uxbridge have been funded through a generous grant from The Durham Ontario Dental Society

Encouraging children to develop good oral hygiene habits at an early age is essential for creating healthy smiles that will last into their adult years.

Each day the participants attempt to hit golf balls to a flag in a regulation golf hole on a green 100 yards away.  From each of the 5 days of the event (including the Special Challenge Days), the top 10 players who hit closest to the hole are ALL 10 daily qualifiers are guaranteed to win a prize AND are invited to the semifinals on Sunday, September 9 in the afternoon. Players can qualify multiple times if they reach the top 10 on multiple days of the competition – The more times you qualify for the semifinals, the more chances you get in the next round.

Step 2: The Semifinals – Sept 9, 2012

The 50 semifinalists will be given 3 balls (for each time they qualified) from 160 yards.  The six closest to the pin will become eligible for the final round where they can win the $1,000,000!  If a semifinalist gets a hole-in-one with their first, second, or third ball at this stage, they will win a 2013 SUBARU OUTBACK courtesy of C&C Motors Whitby, a $40000 in-ground pool from Jones Pools, or $10000 golfing vacation in Scotland courtesy of Ian Morrison, respectively.

Step 3: The Finals – Sept 9, 2012
