Matt Sherman has graciously allowed us to display his 4th grade artwork in our office (he's in high school now!).  It serves as a reminder to limit sweets for tooth health.  When making your children's lunches, choose things like cheese, nuts, apples/pears, baby carrots, and whole wheat bread or crackers.  Drink milk or water.  Stay clear of sugary drinks and snacks, especially the ones that stick to your teeth.  We also offer sealants for added protection against cavities.  Happy First Day of School!
