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.

Drs. Yan Razdolsky and Kapil Vij 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 Drs. Razdolsky and Vij and other dental professionals in Buffalo Grove and Grayslake, IL.

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 us at Forever Smiles during your visit this month! Additionally, our office has composed a fun and entertaining program for kids. We invite your classes to our office for this educational field trip. However, if leaving your school is inconvenient, we can bring our technology into your classroom setting. If you are interested, contact our office for more information!
