At Dalseth Family & Cosmetic Dentistry we love to celebrate holidays at the dental office and one of our favorites is Halloween. One of Dr. Pascal Dalseth’s fondest memories is the year his brother made an eight foot tall grim reaper for the yard. They wrapped it with rope to look like dental floss and made a sign that said “ Floss or Die.” They both got a kick out of it.
Our Treatment Coordinator, Kathy A., loves to celebrate the season by bringing in special prizes for the kids around Halloween. This year she got Dracula teeth, super balls that look like eyeballs, and skull rings that the kids cannot get enough of!
Although Halloween is a fun time for kids it is important to remember safety first when you are out trick or treating. Dr. Weber asks that you take care to enjoy braces-friendly candy like Fun Dips and Pixie Sticks while avoiding chewy, sticky candies which may stick to your braces. Also, make sure you are always with a “buddy”, wear some reflective clothing so cars and people can see you, and remember to brush and floss after all of the fun!
