Smiling Community Dental Hygiene Hiatus

Dear Smiling Community Clients,

As of September 18, 2019 I will be taking an estimated year absence from Heart & Hands Health Collective.  My spouse and I are taking our four year old son on a traveling adventure starting in South East Asia.  We are planning on returning next September to enroll the little guy in kindergarten and get set up in home and work life again.

I am recommending that people see their regular dentist when they are due for their next hygiene continuing care treatment and have a hygiene appointment as well as a check up with the dentist.  Bite-wing x-rays are recommended.  If you prefer seeing a hygienist at an independent hygiene clinic such as Focus on Dental Hygiene in James Bay and Wheely Clean Mobile Hygiene are both companies I have experience with and know that they would do an excellent job of taking care of your oral health.  

I will be in touch about my return and maybe send out a little travel update from time to time. 

I have been enjoying working with all of you these past few years.  I look forward to working with you again in a year’s time.

All the best, 
Heather
