Your Temecula dentist wants to help you enjoy Valentine’s day and, as a result, has some suggestions for you. It’s important to keep in mind during this time of year and during other holidays that you don’t always have to reach for sweetened treats to make your day. Instead, there are always other paths to take that will ensure you come up with wonderful gift ideas for yourself or your loved ones that don’t get in the way of healthy smiles.

Red Or Pink: Dental Hygiene Products!

Never thought you’d be giving someone a toothbrush as a romantic gift? Think again, suggests your Temecula dentist. Skip the manual brushes and instead, grab an electric toothbrush! It will help you and your Valentine maintain truly kissable smiles. Choose one in a Valentine’s Day appropriate color, such as red or pink, and you’re really onto something thoughtful!

Heart-Shaped Everything (Make It Smile Safe)

No need to run out to purchase a heart-shaped box of candies or offer up heart-shaped desserts. There are some ways to incorporate the celebration of this love-filled holiday without heading straight for the sugar, explains your Temecula dentist. Remember that it’s all about the thought! Consider making a meal in the shape of a heart (perhaps you make a quiche that you bake in a heart-shaped mold). Or, maybe you simply purchase heart-shaped dishes, within which you can place anything at all (if it happens to be protein-rich or include veggies, even better).
