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!

You can tell the minute you walk in that everyone enjoys what they do and that everyone likes each other. You also know there is no revolving door on staff. This tells me that the dentist values his staff and must treat them well so they don’t leave. It is a huge positive to always return to the same people who never forget who you are either. Your office is the BEST!
