At Banasiak & Nettune Orthodontic Associates, October means National Orthodontic Health Month!

Happy October! For those who don’t know, National Orthodontic Health Month. This month-long event is organized by our pals at the American Association of Orthodontists, or AAO.

Drs. Roger Nettune, Kenneth Banasiak, and our team realize this is a great opportunity for us and to raise awareness about the importance of oral hygiene. National Orthodontic Health Month also aims to recognize the dedicated work of orthodontists like Dr. Nettune, Dr. Banasiak, and other dental professionals in the Basking Ridge, Mendham and Bedminster areas.

The AAO recommends patients avoid the following Halloween treats, or recipes with these ingredients:

• Caramel
• Nuts
• Popcorn (including un-popped kernels)
• Taffy
• Jelly beans
• Hard pretzels
• Licorice
• Bubblegum
• Taco chips
• Ice

If you have any questions, please feel free to give our Basking Ridge, Mendham or Bedminster office a call, ask us on Facebook, or ask our team during your visit this month!
