Health & Wellness Quick Tips

Dental and Orthodontics:

“Parents can help kids to brush better by getting a battery operated rotary toothbrush.  Many fun and colorful toothbrushes are available commercially.  Some toothbrushes come with their favorite cartoon characters on them and include built-in two minute timers.” –Dr. Kris Popli of Tyson Laser Dentistry

General Health:

“Veggies, veggies, and more veggies. Veggies should be the central theme of your diet.” –Judy Caplan, MS, RD, Registered Dietician with the American Dietetics Association


“The most important concept in dieting is that you have to lose weight the same way you are going to maintain weight. For long term weight control there can be no demarcation between being on or off a diet. You are just eating healthfully most of the time.” –Judy Caplan, MD, RD

“In order not to revisit your weight gain, you need to build into your day habits that make it impossible to regain the weight: daily exercise, food journals, and continually reminding yourself what you really want to accomplish.” –Judy Caplan, MD, RD
