EVERYONE KNOWS that snack time is one of the best times of the day! Getting a tasty treat in the middle of the workday or grabbing a snack after school can be just the pick-me-up you need to tackle the rest of your day with a smile.

But before you reach for the chips or chocolates, we have a few smile-friendly suggestions! Today we want to share our team’s favorite snacks that protect your teeth and benefit your smile.

Our Smile-Friendly Snack Picks


Dr Ghamian: cucumbers
Dr Khoury: cheese
Susan: apples
Carla: peanut butter and celery
 

In addition to trying out our favorite snacks, keep these tips in mind when planning snacks that benefit your oral health:

Eat More Of These

Leafy Greens: Dark, leafy greens like kale, spinach, and collard greens have calcium, Vitamin A, Vitamin B2, and magnesium; all essential for healthy teeth and gums.
Cheese, Milk, and Yogurt: Dairy is a delicious source of calcium, which supports strong bones and teeth.
Kiwi, Oranges, And Other Vitamin-C-Rich Foods: Vitamin C boosts your body’s ability to fight infection that causes gum disease.

 

Eat Less Of These

Soda And Energy Drinks: These acidic, sugary drinks attack and gradually deteriorate your protective tooth enamel.
Sticky Candy, Gummies, And Dried Fruit: These foods stick in your teeth and continue to bathe your teeth in sugar for hours after eating.
Highly Processed Carbs: This includes crackers, white bread, and pastries, which feed decay-causing bacteria in your mouth.

TESTIMONIALS

Mary J., Ottawa

I enjoy and respect the people that work at Centrum Dental, everyone is friendly, helpful and informative.


Vic H, Sttitsville

"I recently saw Suzie for my hygenist appointment, who I have been going to for about 10 years. She explains everything as she goes along and she is personable and friendly every time. The girls at the front desk are similarly pleasant and helpful. Dr. Khoury and his assistants have been great too, always fitting us in for any emergency or appointment change. The new office is bright and beautiful."


Helene A, Kanata

"All parties concerned are most professional and cordial. The dental craft and hygiene are super excellent in every way. The place is clean and inviting one is not afraid that they will shortcut anything to jeoparidize the person's health. Bravo to you all and thank you for the good services rendered."


Serge D., Ottawa

"As usual, the staff is very welcoming as soon as you open the door. Suzie is a great hygienist."


Maureen O., Kanata

As always, it was a positive experience. Having done more of the suggestions I was given from the last cleaning, my gums were better. Just goes to show that one must do what one is advised to do by the professionals, and they are just that at the Centrum Dental Centre. Its always a pleasure dealing with them, and I always come away smiling, which is a good thing coming from the dentist! Keep up the good work!


Christine H., Kanata

"I highly recommend the Centrum Dental centre. For such a skitish patient they always take such good, good care of me. Dr Ghamian is incredible and has always been kind and patient. Perhaps that is why I have referred many of my clients to them year after year."


Ahmed E.

"I almost fell asleep while getting my root canal! The pain was gone in less than a day... and I was able to eat on that side in 2 days! Thank you Dr. Khoury! You're a magician :) Very pleasant staff and experience!"


Dale M., Kanata

"Kim V. was thorough and always helpful in her suggestions/tips. Her highly personable style makes the visit that much more enjoyable. Dr. Ghamien tends to make each patient feel welcome and "not just another appt" regardless of nature or length of visit."


Marc A.

“I highly recommend Centrum Dental. The staff is consistently polite, friendly, professional and available. I have had several procedures done, from fillings to root canals and extractions, and the work is always to my satisfaction. Dr. Khoury is punctual, painless, and always explains procedures. I am entirely satisfied with my experience at Centrum Dental.”


Cade B., Kanata

"Very good experience. This was Cade's first filling without any gas and he did great. Dr. K was so good with him"
