2017 ANNUAL SPRING NEWSLETTER

ANTIBIOTIC PROPHYLAXIS (Pre-med) AFTER JOINT REPLACEMENTS
Recently, guidelines have changed regarding antibiotic prophylaxis after having joint replacements. They may not be required in many cases. If you are planning to have, or have had a recent joint replacement(two years or less) , please consult with your surgeon. We have a form available which you are welcome to take to your surgeons office, or we would be happy to forward it on your behalf.
Dentistry On West is a proud sponsor of the Orillia Youth Basketball Association, the Orillia Curling Club, and the Orillia Minor Hockey Association (Mighty Molars).
TEAM BUILDING AND CONTINUING EDUCATION
In December of 2016, we all enjoyed a wonderful winter getaway at Deerhurst Resort in celebration of the holiday season.
We are always grateful to have the opportunity to attend the Ontario Dental Association Spring Meeting. The annual Dental Association Spring Meeting is held each. It is a great event for our staff to attend continuing education courses and to check out the latest advances in our field.
WE OFFER MINI-IMPLANTS
We are happy to offer Mini-Implants. If you have been having trouble with the fit and stability of your dentures, these may change your life. Please ask us about them at your next visit.
WISDOM TEETH AND SEDATION
We continue to work with Dr. Brian Kumer and Dr. Stephen Ing. Our patients appreciate that we are able to take care of their wisdom teeth and provide sedation in the comfort of our office.
