Festive Foods

With just days until Christmas we can’t help but get into the Christmas spirit and we have some ideas for your patients to get excited too! 
Part of the festive celebrations always includes lots of food and drinks which we know can be challenging for our patient community who often experience difficulties eating with braces. As such, we have developed a new “Foods for Orthodontics” page on our website, with recipes that you may well like to try too!

Let us know if you have anything to add!
