Calcium rich foods like milk, cheese and spinach are AWESOME for the enamel of your teeth! Calcium strengthens enamel while controlling the amount of acid in your mouth. Who loves these foods as much as we do?

Does your family like celery? Tooth strengthening vitamins, increased saliva flow, tooth "scrubbing" fibers, all make celery a dental superfood!

Share this post!What a great example of someone who didn't give up. Lucy Hobbs was twice denied entry into dental school because of her gender. But her hard work and persistence paid off and in 1866 she became the first woman in the world to graduate with a degree in dentistry.

Tired of asking, "Did you brush your teeth?"
Encouraging your kids to brush is easier when there is a regular, nightly routine that follows the same patterns and general time every night.
Younger children may even benefit from a reward chart!

Whitening toothpastes can be too abrasive for kid's teeth. But everyone in your family can enjoy the natural tooth whitening that comes from eating more strawberries! Anyone else love them as much as we do?

Not all ear pain is caused by an infection. In fact, ear pain can be the result of tooth grinding, jaw misalignment or inflammation. If your child frequently complains of ear soreness or pain, and doctors can find no fluid or infection, ask us for an evaluation.

While every child is different, most kids don't have the motor skills to brush without help until at least age 8. Young children lack the motor skills to necessary to adequately clean their teeth. We encourage parents to supervise and help children make certain that every surface of each tooth is clean.

Teach your children that teeth are not bottle openers, package rippers, string cutters, pliers or scissors. Broken teeth can result in repairs that are never as strong as the original tooth. It may be more convenient to use your teeth, but the effort saved isn't worth an emergency trip to the dentist.
