      It can be shocking to many parents, if not perplexing: many dentists now recommend you schedule your child's first visit before he or she turns one. Before you brush it off as a bit of overzealous advice, you should know it's supported by the American Dental Association and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry-and with good reason!

Hard Facts About Added Sugar

By: Dr. Elizabeth Dunkleberger DDS

A diet high in added sugar equals

added health risks, including tooth

decay, diabetes, and weight gain. Did

you know that sugar hides in 74% of

processed foods? If not, you may be

eating more than you bargained for.

The average North American eats

about 20 teaspoons of added sugar daily

– almost triple the recommended dietary

amount – with disastrous results for

overall health.

If you do yourself one favor, cut back

on added sugar. Your teeth, waistline,

and general well-being will thank you!

How to brush your teeth? Learn in 4 simple steps!

Floss Is Boss


 By: Elizabeth Dunkleberger DDS

According to a national survey, over
one quarter of people tell white lies to their
dentist about flossing. (Pssst... We see
through them every time.) In fact, 7% of
people would rather hear the sound of nails
on a chalkboard than floss. 18% would rather
wash dishes. 9% would rather do their taxes!
The real truth is, flossing is a critical part
of your daily oral hygiene routine and should
never be skipped.
Commit to flossing for just two minutes
during your bedtime routine and you’ll have
a clean, fresh, healthy mouth… Something
we all want!
