We hope you and your loved ones have a safe and happy Halloween. We also hope you do the things that will help you maintain your healthy smiles after you bring home the goodies.

1. Plan Ahead
Before you go on your sweet treasure hunt, talk to your kids about what to do with your candy. How much is reasonable to eat at one time? (A little.) Should you drink water while you eat candy? (Yes.) When should you have candy? (Ideally, after a meal.)
2. Share the Sweets
You are more than likely to come home with more candy than you need. With that in mind, research ways you can donate candy to remove some of the temptation for yourself and add some happiness to someone else’s day.
3. Keep Up Good Habits
Don’t forget to continue doing the things that you already do for the sake of your healthy smiles. Brush your teeth twice daily. Floss every day.
And remember to visit your dentist at Davenport Dental Group.
