Richmond Hill Pediatric Dentists: Best and Worst Halloween Candy for Your Teeth

Wednesday, September 25th, 2019

Kid's Dentistree Savannah Richmond Hill pediatric dentists

Below is a guest post from Kid’s Dentistree in Richmond Hill , a pediatric dentist office in Richmond Hill.

Best and Worst Halloween Candy for Your Teeth

For kids, Halloween is all about dressing up in costumes and trying to collect the most trick-or-treat sweets possible. However, there is nothing spookier than the cavities these candy binges can cause. Even though no candy is considered healthy for your teeth, there are some that are better and worse than others. To help you sort out your child’s candy bag, read our Halloween candy blog post.

One of the best times to schedule a trip to the dentist is right after Halloween. Kid’s Dentistree’s talented dentist and team of hygienists will ensure your child’s smile is healthy after all the holiday treats while also teaching them the best dental habits for a lifetime of strong teeth. For more information, click here!

The Kid’s Dentistree office is located in the “Clock Tower” building, right next to The Suites at Station Exchange on Ford Avenue in Richmond Hill.
