Did you know that in a bowl of fruit and fibre cereal, there is the equivalent of 6-7 cubes of sugar! 4. Fear of the dentist is ten times higher than fear of seeing a doctor. This is one of the main reasons for not visiting the dentist. If you would like to discuss any of these points with us, please do not hesitate to contact us via e mail or telephone.
