EVERYONE KNOWS that snack time is one of the best times of the day! Getting a tasty treat in the middle of the workday or grabbing a snack after school can be just the pick-me-up you need to tackle the rest of your day with a smile.
But before you reach for the chips or chocolates, we have a few smile-friendly suggestions!
Eat More Of These
Leafy Greens: Dark, leafy greens like kale, spinach, and collard greens have calcium, Vitamin A, Vitamin B2, and magnesium; all essential for healthy teeth and gums. Cheese, Milk, and Yogurt: Dairy is a delicious source of calcium, which supports strong bones and teeth. Kiwi, Oranges, And Other Vitamin-C-Rich Foods: Vitamin C boosts your body’s ability to fight infection that causes gum disease.
Eat Less Of These
Soda And Energy Drinks: These acidic, sugary drinks attack and gradually deteriorate your protective tooth enamel. Sticky Candy, Gummies, And Dried Fruit: These foods stick in your teeth and continue to bathe your teeth in sugar for hours after eating.

Its official! Spring is here! We all associate spring with longer days, warm weather and flowers! Lots and lots of new blooming flowers! We love our flowers and plants here at this office! But this spring, we have one plant that has been the talk of the town!
This plant is called the Senetti Blue. The Senetti thrives in low temps, so it blooms very early into the season. The Senetti is available in a variety of colors, and blooms from early spring until summer.
Feel free to stop by and take a look at this beauty!
That’s all for today folks! Stay tuned for more to come…..
