Nutritional Counseling

What is Nutritional Counseling? 

While brushing and flossing are incredibly beneficial to the health of your teeth, what you eat and drink on a regular basis can contribute to dental problems. A diet full of sugar and carbs can lead to tooth decay, and late night snacking can create problems with both cavities and gum disease. We offer nutritional counseling to help shine a light onto your current diet and changes that you can make to improve your eating habits. This counseling is available to all of our patients regardless of age, gender or weight.

Why is Nutritional Counseling important?

The problem with eating a diet that is full of sugar is that it isn’t just detrimental to your overall health, but to the health of your teeth as well. The bacteria in your mouth thrive on sugar, which causes them to multiply rapidly. This can lead to problems with excessive plaque, cavities, gingivitis and gum disease. Kids and adults often both have poor diets, especially in this fast-paced world that we live in. However, in order to save your smile and prevent a future of dental treatments, proper nutrition is key.

    I have taken my daughter to Peak for the past year and our experience has been awesome. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. My daughter actually enjoys going to the dentist! Dr. Chris is great with her and keeps me updated on any issues we may encounter in the future. Their costs are very reasonable

    This is the BEST pediatric dentist in north county! All of the staff is so friendly and welcoming. Their office is small, but very cozy. It is extremely clean and modern and my 4 and 3 year old kids love coming here! They really take great care of their patients and do a great job

    Dr Dixon and his staff have always been so thoughtful and conscientious with our children. He has always been available to us when there’s been an emergency. I appreciate that he is supportive of our choices as parents to be cautious as times, and having a “let’s monitor it and see” approach at other times.
