October is National Orthodontic Health Month!
Happy October! For those who don't know, it's National Orthodontic Health Month. This month-long event is organized by our pals at the American Association of Orthodontists, or AAO.
Dr. R. Scott Smith and our team realize that this is a great opportunity for us to raise awareness about the importance of oral hygiene. National Orthodontic Health Month also aims to recognize the dedicated work of orthodontists like Dr. Smith and other dental professionals.
The AAO recommends patients avoid the following Halloween treats, or recipes with these ingredients:
• Popcorn (including un-popped kernels)
• Jelly beans
• Hard pretzels
• Taco chips
If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call, ask us on Facebook or ask Dr. Smith during your visit this month!
