"Rethink Your Drink"
As summer is approaching we are all looking forward to spending time outside with our families and friends, we want to remind everyone that drinking water has many benefits. Water not only is great for our bodies but is the beverage of choice for our teeth! Reason being... WATER HAS NO SUGAR!
Take a look below as we compare the sugar content of some of our favorite drinks.
|A 32 ounce bottle of Coke has 65 grams of sugar |
which is about 17 sugar cubes!!
|A 32 ounce bottle of Gatorade has 52.5 grams of sugar |
which is about 13 sugar cubes!!
|A 13.5 ounce container of Orange Juice has 41 grams of sugar|
which is about 10.5 sugar cubes!!
|A 6 ounce container of Kool-aid Jammers has 24 grams of sugar|
which is about 6 sugar cubes!!
Just remember everyone deserves a treat, but by limiting the frequency of sugar in your diet it will help keep your teeth healthy and cavity free!!

The American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD) was created to achieve the highest quality dental care for infants, children, adolescents, patients with special health care needs, and their parents.
Certification by the ABPD provides assurance to the public that a pediatric dentist has successfully completed accredited training and a voluntary examination process designed to continually validate the knowledge, skills, and experience requisite to the delivery of quality patient care.
Not all Pediatric Dentists are Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD). It is important to find a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist for your child’s dental needs. A Board Certified Pediatric Dentist has attained certifications with the ABPD, which represents the highest level of credentials. As a patient, you can be confident that your board certified dentist remains current in the dental profession.

Helping your child learn excellent oral health habits includes visiting the dentist regularly. A pediatric dentist is best for children, and here’s why:
As a parent, you know how hard it can be to get your children to do what they need to do. Children's dentists are trained to anticipate and work with the behaviors, emotions, and psychological needs that are unique to kids. This makes for a more pleasant dental visit for both you and your child.

The setting of a pediatric dentist's office is much different than what you might find at an adult's dentist office. This can make a huge difference in how your children perceive the dentist and dental work.
|decor with a kid in mind|
With a staff that truly cares for children, understands their needs, and wants to keep them happy, a pediatric dentist's office is the best place for your child to get his or her dental treatments and exams. You'll appreciate the difference you'll find in an office where everyone, from the receptionist to the hygienist to the dentist, has your child's best interests at heart.
