April 2016: Tips, eNews, and More!

It's finally April, and although we've enjoyed a mild winter, I'm sure we can all really appreciate that warmer weather is here. Speaking of appreciation, this month we celebrate National Dental Hygienist Week (April 9-15), giving us the opportunity to show how much we appreciate the people who take such good care of our smiles.

In honor of our hygienists we will be celebrating with Put Your Purple On! Why purple? The colour purple has long been the trim colour for dental hygiene graduate caps and gowns and is said to signify compassion, purpose, and inspiration! Check out our Facebook to see pictures of our staff decked out in purple!

Because April is both Oral Health Month and Oral Cancer Awareness month, our featured article talks about the oral cancer warning signs to look out for and the importance of regular oral cancer screenings. If it's been a while since your last checkup, contact our office to book a screening.

Have a safe and healthy month,

Dr. Pasha and Wellington Aurora Dental Team

Do You Know the Causes of Oral Cancer?

Make no mistake, cancer is a scary thing. Each year it kills thousands of Canadians and drastically alters the lives of survivors. As a dentist I encounter cancer mostly in the mouth in the form of various oral cancers; it’s an unfortunate part of my job. Oral cancers are common in Canadians, and while serious, are also among the more preventable. Around 75 percent of oral cancers are linked to modifiable behaviours like tobacco use and excessive alcohol consumption.


Oral cancers originate in the tissues of the mouth, though they can also appear through metastasis (when cancer spreads between two areas of the body that aren’t directly connected). We identify oral cancers as painful lesions, often on the border of the tongue or the floor of the mouth, as well as on the lips, salivary glands and at the back of the throat.
