The good news is that there are ways that people can help make Halloween more natural and healthy.

“Halloween is an exciting time for kids, so the last thing we want to do is take away their fun,” explains Dr. Bruno Sharp, a fourth-generation dentist who created a line of products called Dr. Sharp Natural Oral Care, and is celebrating his 10th year as a Natural Oral Care provider. “We can still keep it fun and yet make it healthier.
