When I drove into our parking lot I had to chuckle, “Doughnuts at the dental office?!” hmmm, maybe we can use this . . .
I must admit I’m not a big fan of doughnuts. Maybe I should clarify. I hate doughnuts. Can I go on? In my opinion, Doughnuts should never be eaten, or especially given to children.  I will be bold enough to say they should never be fed to the elderly.  As a dental professional I know that doughnuts not only cause cavities, but a host of other aliments.  Hmm, this could be an interesting list.

  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • Hypertension
  • Bad Breath
  • Obesity
  • Cancer
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Low Libido
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Colon Cancer
  • Diarrhea
  • Stroke
  • Depression
  • Dandruff

OK, maybe I’m getting carried away with the list, but I think we need to just say no to Dunkin’ Donuts and Krispy Kremes doughnuts a bit more. I would like to think that Seasons of Smiles dental is a doughnut free zone, that is, except for our parking lot. 🙂


  1. Do you have any sources to cite your claims? You say you know these things because you are a dental professional but I’m not sure if dentists are qualified to determine what causes heart disease and Alzheimer’s. That’s a pretty bold statement.

    1. Good morning Drew,
      We recently attended a seminar on oral hygiene that was very informative on sugars and how our whole body reacts, not just our teeth. There is a direct correlation with heart disease and sugar, and I have realized more and more that as health professionals we not only need to inform our patients that what goes in the mouth affects more than just our teeth, and we also need to “walk the walk” ourselves. If you’re interested in this topic check out Dr. Arthur Agatston MD heart disease.
      I must agree when I made my list, I may have gone a bit far when I said that sugar causes dandruff. 🙂 All things considered, raising questions helps convince our patients on the importance of not eating junky foods.
      Give my best to everyone at
