Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, DICOI, best-selling co-author of the book, The Will To Win, with Brian Tracy, and owner of the Smilecreator of Naples, talks about how the Halloween celebration has typically been a boon to dentists and a great time to begin instilling good oral hygiene practices into young children.
Naples, FL, September **, 2019: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new article on his website entitled, “An Oral Health Guide In Anticipation Of Halloween,” in which Dr. Hernandez talks about why he shares an article from baledoneen.com.
Dr. Hernandez writs, “As we move further away from summer and deeper into the fall season, thoughts of Halloween start to play in the minds of children and parents across the country.” He continues, “As the first celebration of the fall season Halloween is one that has historically been detrimental to oral health and fundamental to keeping many dentists in business! So much sugar consumed in such a short period of time. Dentists can pretty much count on emergency appointments with children who have tooth aches in the weeks after Halloween.”
“As a dentist who employs and works with the Bale-Doneen method,” says Dr. Hernandez, “I want to share what they have posted on their website in honor of National Dental Hygiene Month.” He further explains, “Teaching children to keep their mouth clean is an important lesson to establish early. To that end and to the hopeful avoidance of the scary things that can happen when one doesn’t tend to their oral hygiene, I am posting an article from baledoneen.com in its entirety.”
The title of the baledoneen.com article is “4 Scary Reasons to Take Your Dental Health Seriously” in the article it is said that, “October is National Dental Hygiene Month, which honors the work of a potentially lifesaving member of your heart-attack-and-stroke prevention team: your dental provider.” The article continues, “Recent research links poor oral health to increased risk for many deadly disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease, cancer and cardiovascular disease (CVD), the leading killer of Americans.”
