The holiday season is upon us! This means presents, good food, and of course, sweets.

Here are a few pointers to keep good oral hygiene for the holidays:
Tips for limiting the effects of sugary treats
Halloween is a great time for parents to think about their children’s teeth, but oral health should be a year-round concern. Regularly encourage good oral health habits with your children, including flossing daily, brushing at least twice a day and visiting the dentist regularly. That way you’ll ensure the sugary villains don’t stick around on your children’s teeth long after Halloween is over.
