How much sugar is in your soda? TOO MUCH! With the help of Sue Purcell, PRASAD dental hygienist, Cady Marban-Rodriguez illustrates that there are about 17 grams of sugar in every bottle of soda.

Mrs. Purcell demonstrates how to properly brush and floss teeth. She also discussed ways to eat healthy snacks to keep your teeth clean.
