Canucks 2013

February 25, 2013 | Posted Uncategorized

Well so far in this short season the results are mixed.  Goal tending is fine. There will be ups and downs with that.

Ryan Kesler will need time to regain his former self.  Zack Kassian is coming along slowly after a quick start. Jason Garrison needs time to mesh with the team.  The Sedins and Burrows are fine.  Only time will tell what is going to happen. As long as the team makes the playoffs then anything can happen.

Spring Dental Checkup

May 16, 2012 | Posted Uncategorized

If you haven't been in the office in a year or so why not call the office for a "Spring Cleaning" and check up.  With the new low dose digital xrays and oral cancer screening device (velscope), we can spot minor problems before they become major.

Call: 604 421 8809 for North Burnaby

       604 437 6899 for South Burnaby

Well the season ended with a thud.  The aggressive play of the LA Kings coupled with great goal tending by Jonathan Quick was too much of a mountain for the Canucks to climb.  Without the offense of Daniel Sedin and an injured Ryan Kessler there was not much the Canucks could do to score more goals than the Kings.  Hopefully we can loook forward to next year.

Vancouver Canucks 2012

BC Lions 2011 Grey Cup Champs

November 28, 2011 | Posted Uncategorized

THe Lions did it.  From 0 - 5 to the Grey Cup Champs.  It doesn't get any better.  The Lions showed that they could overcome adversity and gel as a team.  They believed in each other and through hard work and team work they over came the obstacles and won the Grey Cup.  Travis Lulay: MOP and Grey Cup MVP  -- what a ride!!!  We can all learn lessons from the Lions -- always believe in yourself and no matter how bleak it looks hard work and determination can bring about good things!!

Dental Plan Expiration Limits

November 24, 2011 | Posted Uncategorized

As many of our patients are aware dental plans have yearly limits that coincide with a December 31st year end.  Please check with your plan if your limit has been used up.  Don't wait till the last minute to call the office to make an appointment to "use" up the limit.  Why not make it a "pre - Christmas " priority to review your limits and make an appointment.  If in doubt please call either office and speak to the recptionist to clarify your remaining limit for the year.

BC Lions

Well who would have thought the BC lions would win seven games in a row.  It shows what happens when a team believes in each other and work towards a common goal.  We should all learn from this team and how thet overcame adversity to thrive and be the best they can be.

New Oral B Spinbrush

July 26, 2011 | Posted Uncategorized

Ask us about the new ORAL B rotary tooth brush.  It has all the new features to improve your oral health and give you a brighter smile.  We have these in stock or if they are sold out we can order them for you.

Well it looks like we will have to wait another year for our Vancouver Canucks to hoist the Stanley Cup.  It seems like a seven game series took a mental and physical toll on the team.  Most of the top line was playing injured, suspended or otherwise unable to perform to the usual Vancouver Canucks skill set that we have been used to all year.  The power play was negated by the stifling defence of Boston and especially the Boston Goalie, Tim Thomas.  We will have to wait and see how the Canucks management will add to the team to be able to beat teams like Boston next year.

On the down side of game seven was the riot caused by belligerent fans fuelled by alcohol and misguided anger.  It seems like a few people chose to ignite a riot to accomplish a personal agenda. This is not the Vancouver that captivated the world during the Olympics 2010 --- this is a segment of society trying to get noticed by causing a riot.  This type of behaviour will cause the City of Vancouver to limit public gatherings at celebratory events in the future.

Things are never easy for the Canucks  --- one more game at home.  Hopefully the home team winning streak will continue!

Monday June 13th the Vancouver Canucks will be battling the Boston Bruins for the Stanley Cup.  We want the Caucks to bring the CUP back to Canada where it belongs!  Go Canucks Go!!!

Burrows scores a great OT goal!!!  Only two more wins for the CUP

Daniel and Henrik Sedin with Dr. Jim Der  and Joshua Der

The Sharks have no teeth.  The Canucks were able to score on 3 power plays and defeat the Sharks.

Keep up the good work for Tuesdays Game!!!
