Dog Licks Baby's Face

Dear Marie:
I've always heard that the mouths of dogs are cleaner than the mouths of humans. I need to know if this is true because I am wondering if it is sanitary for my dog to lick my baby’s face. Please let me know.
Mrs. B

Dear Mrs. B:
The idea that the mouths of dogs are clean is basically a very popular public myth. That is not to say that human mouths are any pristine location either...but based upon what I have seen some dogs eat or lick (use your imagination), I wouldn't recommend letting your dog lick your baby’s face!
