Valentine's Day isn't just about sweets and treats - it's about showing your friends and family how much you care!

Are your kids handing out valentine's to their friends and classmates this year?  Here are a few ways to celebrate Valentine's Day without the sweets.

  • Send some tooth-friendly Valentine's.  The American Dental Association has free Valentine's Day cards that you can print and share with special people in your life.  You can download them here.
  • Skip the chocolates this year and try these healthy Valentine's Day snack alternatives instead!
  • Hand out sugar-free gum. Kids are always looking for gum in class - hand out sugar-free gum that's good for your teeth, too!
  • Gift some plastic jewelry.  There are so many cute Valentine's Day themed plastic jewelry.  They're cute and inexpensive if you plan on handing them out to the whole class.
  • Throw a healthy Valentine's Day party!  Since the holiday falls on a weekend this year, try following these tips for a healthy kids party.

Is it time to schedule your child's biannual cleaning & exam?  You can schedule an appointment by calling 516-222-5100 to reach our Garden City office or 516-759-7000 to reach our Glen Cove office.
