News from Healthy Smiles Dental Group, April 2012

Dear {First_Name},

It gives me great pleasure to compile the first e- newsletter for our practice. In this newsletter you will find two very important articles we have put together regarding your dental health which can have direct impact on your medical condition like diabetes and heart disease. Secondly our focus has been to arm the patient with some immediate strategies in case of dental emergencies either at home or playground by using some simple easy steps.

Most importantly we are giving away an oral B triumph tooth brush to one lucky patient of our practice who answers the questions correctly in our competition each month.

Have a great Easter, keep smiling and see you soon at your next appointment.
