Brushing and flossing twice a day goes a long way but it is important for kids to have nutritious food choices not only to maintain a healthy mind and body but also to ensure that their teeth will last a lifetime. Encourage and remind your student to make solid choices and avoid sticky candies or starchy foods that get trapped in their teeth. Soft drinks are loaded with sugar and should be avoided. And of course, make sure your child visits the dentist every six months. Make an appointment at Goldstein Dental Group in Novi, Michigan today!
