Teeth-Friendly Foods

As parents, it’s hard to find foods that are both healthy, and easy to make for your kids. Pre-packaged foods can be full of processed ingredients that have harmful effects on your children’s teeth and overall health, and sugary foods stick to your children’s teeth to promote decay. Here is a list of sure-fire foods that will keep your children healthy and their teeth happy!

Crunchy Fruits & Vegetables
Chewing crunchy, high fiber fruits and vegetables like apples, celery and carrots can scrub away plaque from teeth.

Drinking Water with Fluoride
Fluoride helps prevent and even reverse the early stages of tooth decay, so drinking water with fluoride is key for pristine dental health. If your water doesn’t have fluoride in it, ask Dr. Gallo about fluoride supplements!

Dairy Products
Dairy products like milk, cheese and yogurt are excellent sources of calcium, phosphates, and vitamin D, all known to protect and strengthen teeth.

Leafy Green Veggies
Vegetables like broccoli and other leafy greens are packed with vitamins and minerals that are very beneficial for dental health!

Nuts and Seeds
Not only are nuts packed with protein but both nuts and seeds replenish the minerals in teeth that are lost to acidic foods.
These foods all have excellent benefits for your children’s dental health so make sure they’re on your next grocery list!

We’ve had 2 visits at this office for my 2 year old. Both visits have been during the pandemic. This office is so clean and I’ve never had to share a waiting room with anyone. Wait times have been less than 10 minutes. Dr. Gallo is so wonderful. Their expertise and professionalism is outstanding. Everyone that works in the office is friendly and great with kids.

Southwoods consistently exceeds my expectations. They are kind and courteous, and always help my children develop better habit with brushing and flossing. They take thier time, and the quality of the service really comes through with each visit. I have now been using Southwoods for over a year, and won't be moving to another pediatric dentist anytime soon. These guys are awesome, thier facilities are clean, and organized and most importantly everything is kid friendly.

Dr. Gallo and her staff are amazing. I have a special needs son who was afraid of the dentist. They were great with him and my daughter. She made them feel comfortable and relaxed while she quickly did what she needed to. I recommend them highly.

We had an urgent situation with our 2-year-old. They squeezed us in same-day and they were simply wonderful with her! They put on her favorite show to watch during the exam and gave her lots of little prizes for being good. Highly recommend!
