Happy October! Now that the busy month of September is behind us, we are ready to celebrate several of our young patients who have done well to brush and floss their teeth. 

At Jerger Pediatric Dentistry, we believe in celebrating children on a job well done, especially when they brush and floss their teeth. For the month of September, we would like to congratulate the following young patients on keeping their teeth strong and cavity-free! 

These young patients have shown exemplary commitment (as have their parents) to excellent oral hygiene. However, a healthy smile means more than daily brushing and flossing. It also means eating nutritious foods and visiting the dentist for routine dental exams and teeth cleanings. Dr. Jerger is a friendly and compassionate children's dentist who enjoys helping young people understand the importance of great dental health. 

We are always happy to work with kids and their parents on how to best brush and floss, and we also offer nutrition and habit counseling. Call us today to set up your child's visit with Dr. Jerger!

Tips for a Safe and Healthy Halloween

As Halloween is right around the corner, we would like to wish you and your family a spooktacular holiday! Halloween is the time for ghoulish costumes and bags full of sticky-sweet candy. Though we want everyone to enjoy the holiday, we want to remind parents and kids that they must take good care of their teeth if they're going to have healthy, happy smiles. Dr. Jerger and our team would like to share some tips for keeping your child's teeth clean and cavity-free, even after they eat some of their favorite Halloween candy.

  • Brush and floss every day, especially after you eat candies and sweets.
  • Drink plenty of water to wash away bacteria from the teeth and gums. 
  • Don't eat any candy or treats with open wrappers or packaging. 
  • Get regular checkups with your dentist to keep your smile healthy. 

Be safe and enjoy your Halloween!
