A Healthy Halloween does not have to be a humdrum Halloween. In fact, here are some creatively healthy treat projects that both parents and kids can really sink their teeth into. No one will even miss the boring old pre-packaged stuff!
Despite promoting the more tooth-friendly treats this year (versus the hard candies, those chewy sticky sweets, and those loaded-with-sugar things) regular flossing, brushing, and mouthwash rinsing throughout the season are key components in your child’s #GoodDentalHygieneHabits. If your child does suffer a candy catastrophe this season, or you haven’t established with a regular dentist yet, reach out to The Pampered Tooth, your Port Orange dentist, at 386.760.1200. No insurance is no problem, and our caring staff is great with kids and our office is child friendly.
Dark and Delicious
