We love to see healthy smiles, which is why we have made a commitment to keep all of our patients educated about the best ways to keep their teeth and gums in good shape. More importantly, we practice what we preach and prioritize healthy habits in our lives in and out of the office.
Following a smile-friendly diet is one of the best things that you can do for your teeth. Fresh fruits and veggies, lean meats and calcium-rich dairy all benefit your smile in untold ways. That’s why we urge our patients to choose markets like Valli Produce when stocking up on groceries.
Valli Produce is a family-owned grocery store with locations all over the Chicago area. Its roots run deep and far, all the way back to Italy. Valli is a small farm town in Calabria, Italy, where founder Alfredo Presta grew up. From an early age, Alfredo learned that he loved caring for others and providing a helping hand to anyone who needs one.
After coming to the United States, Alfredo knew that he wanted to provide the people of Chicago with fresh, wholesome produce like he’d grown up on in Italy. And without any formal education or training, Alfredo opened up Valli Produce in 1977 and has been in business ever since.
Now, with 6 locations all over Chicago—1 of them being right on our own street—Valli Produce has expanded to add modern amenities and tasty new foods. But the original commitment to fresh food, friendly service and hard work still lies at the root of Valli Produce, which is why the Royal Dental Care team supports this local business.
Valli Produce carries over 300 produce items throughout the year, but only the freshest and most wholesome products make it to the shelves. The Valli Produce team takes special care to ensure that customers receive the highest quality items on the market.
Next time you visit Valli Produce, take advantage of the fresh and healthy items they carry that will make your smile sparkle:
