In color theory, green is associated with life, growth, health, freshness and nature–all good things!

A wise frog once told us, “It’s not easy being green.” Well, no offense Kermit, but we have to disagree. There are so many emerald wonders to enjoy!


There’s a reason most dental products are mint-flavored. Besides their fresh taste, mint leaves clean your tongue and teeth. How? They block harmful bacteria growth inside your mouth.  If you’re not partial to leaf chewing, stock your medicine cabinet with a minty paste and pack of floss.

Green Exercise

Get outside for a jog and enjoy the cool, crisp morning air. Your body, mouth and mood will thank you. Need extra motivation? Download the Zombies, Run! app on your phone and pretend you’re escaping zombies!

Green Tea

This steamy beverage is a smile superstar. Green tea contains bacteria-fighting polyphenols. These substances help prevent tooth-attacking acids. Boost the cavity-fighting power of your tea by brewing with fluoridated water.

Leafy Greens

Leafy veggies promote good digestion and help your mouth fight tooth decay. How? Green goodies like spinach and kale require a lot of chewing. Chewing increases saliva flow, which is natural way to kick plaque to the curb.
