Sponsored Post: Let's talk about children's dental health this month!

Welcome to one of the harshest Februarys that we have ever had. But instead of talking about the weather, let's talk about Children's Dental Health Month. This month is special for me because I spend two different Fridays either treating kids at the U.B. Dental School or visiting classrooms in Batavia preaching good oral health habits.
 
Obviously, the most important habit a child can have is brushing well enough or for long enough. That's for all of us. Parents are the best "quality control" people for how well their kids are cleaning. In addition, parents of younger children should be helping them brush. A parent can clean more in 20 seconds than some children can clean in 20 minutes.
 
What a child (or adult) eats might not be as important as how it is eaten.  We talk about constantly coating our teeth with sugary things and how harmful it can be to our teeth. Soda pop, sports drinks, fruit juice (especially in baby bottles), coffee with sugar can be the most harmful. "Nursing" these drinks or sipping them for long periods of time is when it hurts the most. I tell my patients that if they have to have a drink like those to "drink it right down" and be done with it. If one has to sip something, make it water--hot or cold. Water is so good for us anyway. Lollipops or any candy that stays in our mouth for long will cause cavities as well. Eat it and be done with it. Fruits and veggies are the most healthy snack substitutes.
 
Of course, the best "quality control" person for your child or for anyone is your dentist or hygienist.  If your child has teeth then they should probably see a dentist. We urge parents of young children to bring their young kids with them at cleaning appointments if not just to get used to coming in but also for a quick usually cost free check up. Your dentist might feel the same.
 
So, kids (and adults!) eat carefully, clean well, and visit your dentist enough. Now, enjoy what's left of our winter for Spring will come, eventually! Dr. Russell Marchese Jr. -- 585-343-2711. Like us on Facebook for more information.

Henry Homelius was today's Flip Ad contest secret code

post by Howard B. Owens in advertising, Sponsored Post, thebatavian

We held a Flip Ad contest today. The winner is Anne Marie Starowitz, of Batavia.

Anne Marie was the eighth person to correctly identify today's secret code, which was Henry Homelius.

The prize is $25.

We have a few advertisers running Flip Ads. Telling us which ads are Flip Ads won't win you the contest (I get about one e-mail a day along those lines). To win, you must find the code hidden under an ad, which we post once a week at random times. (We forgot last week.)
