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!
