Happy October! For those who don’t know, it’s National Orthodontic Health Month. We realize that this is a great opportunity for us to raise awareness about the importance of oral hygiene! National Orthodontic Health Month also aims to recognize the dedicated work of our office and other dental professionals in the area.

We recommends patients avoid the following Halloween treats, or recipes with these ingredients:

• Caramel
• Nuts
• Popcorn (including un-popped kernels)
• Taffy
• Jelly beans
• Hard pretzels
• Licorice
• Bubblegum

If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call, ask us on Facebook, or ask us during your visit this month!
