Parents and dentists are often baffled when children in their care, who brush often, have enough fluoride, and don’t eat sugary treats, get cavities. Dr. Roger W. Lucas, DDS says the reason he wrote this book is so “parents who are motivated to keep their children cavity-free are not accidentally surprised when their child gets cavities.” This book, More Chocolate, No Cavities: How Diet Can Keep Your Kid Cavity-Free, was very easy and interesting to read. You will find that whether following a sequential path through the four unique sections or skipping about to whatever topic is most relevant right now, the context makes sense and is easy to follow. Besides parents, grandparents and anyone else concerned about cavities, this book is also written as a resource for dentists.
The book summary is found here on the Bizcatalyst360 website.
“Cavities are 100% preventable.” Let me add here that Dr. Lucas goes into a deep and succinct explanation for his recommendations for preventing cavities in teeth from the time of the first tooth. His recommendations are on point for cavity prevention, but it is so sound, it can be extended to overall healthy habits.
I read this book and was intrigued by what I learned from the research and experiential knowledge of the author. It’s advice I can apply to my diet in general, and as a benefit, prevent future cavities.
