We would like to extend a huge shout out to our Biggest Smile sponsors Touro College of Dental Medicine, Windsor Dental Center and Craft Smiles Pediatric Dentistry. Thank you for being a part of this year's contest and for making so many smiles in the Hudson Valley as healthy and beautiful as these!

Happy kids show off their biggest smiles Sponsored by WINNER! Luke, 3, Stormville TOP 3 TIPS TO KEEP YOUR KID'S SMILE HEALTHY Touro College of Dental Medicine 19 Skyline Dr., Hawthorne 914-594-2659 This Easter, think more creatively about how to fill your child's basket! Avoid jelly beans and gummy candies which can adhere to teeth, as well as lemonheads and sour candies that have lower acidic components and can harm the enamel. Replace candy with fun trinkets and healthy snacks for a cavity-free Easter. Windsor Dental Center 375 Windsor Hwy., Ste. 400, New Windsor 845-565-6677 Start brushing with an over-the- finger brush or a soft-bristled brush as soon as the first tooth begins to erupt into your child's mouth. As your child gets old enough to do it on their own, make sure you are setting good examples. Maintain your healthy smiles as a family! Craft Smiles Pediatric Dentistry 1 Powelton Rd., Newburgh 845-476-3777 Keep your child's smile healthy and shining bright by helping them brush twice a day and giving them nutritious, tooth friendly snacks, such as cheese, nuts, apples, carrots and more!
