At Rock Rose Dental, we want our patients to enjoy the holidays while protecting their oral health in Roseville, California. Dr. Hoang Truong and our team recommend taking extra care of those hard-earned smiles while balancing the holiday indulgences. To help you navigate the holidays safely, following are some healthy options for you and your family:

— Keep candy bowls filled to the brim with fresh fruit. Crisp fall apples in all of their variety, and clementines or tangerines are easy to grab and snack on.– Treat your family to healthy, snack-sized bags of pretzels, popcorn, dried fruit, nuts, pumpkin seeds, and trail mix. These are also healthy choices whether you keep bowls of these in your home for your family or at your office for yourself.

— Kids love fun treats, you can decorate small oranges, tangerines or clementines like jack-o-lanterns with non-toxic ink to display in your bowls at home. These can also be handed out on Halloween instead of candy, and your neighbors (of all ages) will love you.

— Help your kids celebrate with non-sugary treats. Reward them throughout the month with festive treats such as pencils, erasers, stickers, temporary tattoos, glow sticks, play-doh, sticky spooky eyeballs and wiggly spider rings. Treats don’t have to be sweet!

It will also help if you keep any scheduled end-of-year dental cleanings. At Rock Rose Dental in Roseville, California, Dr. Hoang Truong and our team are pleased to offer a variety of services to preserve your family’s smile health. You can reach us today by calling 916-784-3337. We wish you and your family a safe and healthy Halloween!
