October is National Orthodontic Health Month!

Happy October! For those who don’t know, it’s National Orthodontic Health Month. This month-long event is organized by our pals at the American Association of Orthodontists, or AAO.

Dr. David Engen and our team realize that this is a great opportunity for us to raise awareness about the importance of oral hygiene. National Orthodontic Health Month also aims to recognize the dedicated work of orthodontists like Dr. Engen and other dental professionals in Spokane, WA.

The AAO recommends patients avoid the following Halloween treats, or recipes with these ingredients:

  • Caramel
  • Nuts
  • Popcorn (including un-popped kernels)
  • Taffy
  • Jelly beans
  • Hard pretzels
  • Licorice
  • Bubblegum
  • Ice

If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call, ask us on Facebook, or ask Dr. Engen during your visit this month!

Because of the internet information provided about his background and education, I feel I have a top level, up-to-date professional taking care of me.

State of the art care! I like the “get it right” attitude. After eight years I have not had one negative experience.
