Summer is a great time for entertaining and trying out new recipes with friends and family. The beautiful weather allows for lots of opportunities to gather outdoors for cookouts and parties.
However, it is easy to get caught up in the excitement of summer and entertaining that we forget how important it is to eat tooth-friendly foods – recipes that are delicious but are also nutritious for our bodies and our teeth. Your smile is likely to be the first thing people notice about you and one of the simplest and most important ways to keep them healthy is to be mindful of the foods you are eating.
