Diet can keep kids out of dental chair

A Door County dentist says a healthy diet is the best way for children to avoid cavities. Brushing twice a day is very important but so is avoiding harmful acids found in juice or candy, especially for kids. Door County Medical Center dentist Patti Sigl says those acids can break down teeth and eventually cause cavities over time. Sigl added that too much juice and candy can cause damage in between brushings.



The Door County Medical Center’s dental clinic provides dental care to Medicare or low-income people with no dental insurance. It is located at 228 S. 18th Ave. in Sturgeon Bay.
