Encouraging Great Oral Health this Easter

Dear Andrew Ramsay

Chocolate is okay if you're following a great dental routine.
It's impossible to keep away from chocolate this Easter. We're just into 2013 and already Easter eggs are lining the supermarket shelves. So as a parent, what do you do when your child is desperately tugging on your hand at the checkout in a plea to buy them chocolate?
Do you know about Xylitol candy? 

Xyilitol candy is a lot better for your teeth and gums this Easter.
Americans aren't the only citizens around the world benefitting from Xylitol; a natural sugar alternative. Now, Australians and New Zealanders can reap the perks of eating candy without having to worries about any detrimental health effects.
