Dr. Jessica Choi is a board certified pediatric dentist with nearly 10 years of experience and is excited to have opened her practice in San Marino. As a mother of three preschool-aged children, she understands the importance of establishing an early dental home. Many children who do not eat a lot of sweets and rarely drink juice still end up with cavities. Why? There is a hidden source of sugar in their diets. Any sticky food can get stuck in the grooves of the teeth, making it hard for saliva to wash it away. When food lingers, the risk for developing a cavity increases. Snacking frequently throughout the day gives opportunity for cavities to form. The frequency of sugar exposure is one of the biggest factors for getting cavities.Choi’s tips: Brush 2x/day and floss 1x/day. If your child snacks a lot, you can brush after lunch as well.Choose healthful snacks like fresh fruit and veggiesSnacking throughout the day promotes cavities.Water after every meal or snack will help wash away the food. Choi is so excited to help guide her patients on their path to top-notch oral health and can’t wait to meet you.Visit or call (626) 360-4500.

Huntington Middle School’s biggest fundraiser of the year, the Halloween-themed Hauntington Breakfast, has had to make modifications — a familiar situation for much-anticipated events in the day of COVID-19. Due to the campus’ closure amid the pandemic, the HMS PTA has decided that in lieu of the in-person annual pancake breakfast, it will sell do-it-yourself pancake meal kits for families. The kits will include dry pancake mix, Jones Coffee beans, breakfast syrup, orange juice, chocolate chips and fruit. Each kit has enough food for about four people and will come in a specially made HMS cooler bag and include a custom HMS pancake whisk. The entire community is welcome to participate and kits sell for $50. Participants are encouraged to make their pancakes on the morning of Saturday, Oct. 24, and post pictures of their pancake creations on the @hauntingtonbreakfast Instagram site. Prizes are available for the best pancake creations. There will also be a Halloween house decorating contest and a costume contest as well. Co-chairs Cathy Newton, Jennifer Kang and Jennifer Park have also created a unique “Nightmare Before
