What is a dentist's take on Halloween?

What's a dentist's take on Halloween?

 

For those who avoid refined sugars, great!   For the majority of Americans though, the reality is that we eat a lot of sugar.  I am a realist on Halloween.  I realize that brushing with a fluoride toothpaste may be our best protection.  So I will be handing out candy tonight, along with a toothbrush.   My jack-o-lantern will be a reminder to the kids trick or treating at my house.   I hope they don't smash my pumpkin!
