March 6 – Big SMILE on Dentist’s Day!

Dentistry is one of the oldest medical specialization. Oral health has always been a source of trouble for people and a subject matter of great interest to physicians throughout human history. The first dentist in recorded history - Hesy Ra - is thought to have lived and practiced his dentistry in Egypt around 2600 BCE.

This Day, consider that dentists aren’t the bad guys, that they’re real people too, and that you probably ought to take better care of your teeth. Hooray for dentists!

How to prevent dental damage?

Commit to better habits: eat a healthy diet - the same foods that are good for our bodies in general—like vegetables—are also good for our teeth.

Milk and other dairy products are the primary dietary source of calcium, which is essential for healthy teeth.

Leafy vegetables and other high-fiber foods do wonders for your teeth—mostly because they require a lot of chewing. Eating a bowl of spinach or beans is a bit like running your teeth through a car wash: All that chewing generates saliva, and the food itself physically scrubs your teeth as it's mashed up into little pieces.

And to take make sure healthy food is with you all day long, prepare it in your BentoHeaven bento box even the day before! It will stay fresh, you can warm it up if needed, and with the cutlery set you can enjoy it wherever you go!
