Let's Talk About Summer

It’s almost the first day of summer which means FUN IN THE SUN! We’ve compiled some tips to make sure your summer is safe and full of smiles.


Just like we brush, floss, and visit the dentist to have healthy smiles, we also need to protect our skin by; playing in the shade, wearing protective clothing, and applying sunscreen regularly.


We know that staying hydrated is an important part of day to day health, but it can also have a big impact on your kids’ oral health. We need to stay hydrated so that our bodies can create the saliva that washes away cavity causing bacteria.


If you’re riding bikes, scooters, or skateboards be sure that your head is protected with a helmet. Did you know that wearing a bike helmet reduces the risk of head injury by 50%? Let’s keep those smile holders intact this summer.


Make sure your first aid kit is stocked with a kid friendly bug spray, antibacterial ointment, band aids, and hydrogen peroxide.


Protect your smiles by brushing for two minutes, twice a day. Limit sugary snacks, and visit our office every six months!


Most importantly, HAVE FUN!
