Ever heard of the saying “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”? Well, this expression carries some truth, with one minor change…it keeps the dentist away!

Fruits like apples, pears, peaches, strawberries, and watermelon are excellent summertime snacks that taste great and help your teeth stay healthy! Get creative, and try pairing them together on a platter, in a leafy green salad, or in a refreshing smoothie!

Not a fruit eater? Don’t worry! There are still plenty of healthy bites that will help protect enamel and prevent decay. While kicking it outside this summer, whip up some tasty cheeseburgers topped with freshly cut onions. Or, cool off with a nice, tall glass of infused water. By opting for a low-sugar beverage, you can avoid unwanted bacteria and gum disease.

This summer, stay sharp by choosing to take care of your body, mind, soul, and teeth!
