The entire month of October is dedicated to the four key components of oral health:
Brush – 2 times daily for 2 minutes
Floss – 1 time daily
Rinse – 1 time daily with a fluoridated mouth rinse
Chew – sugarfree gum after eating or drinking
National Dental Hygiene Month is a partnership by the American Dental Hygienists’ Association (ADHA) and the Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company. This marks the fifth consecutive year helping raise public awareness about good oral health.
This is a great time to schedule your next check-up and make your oral health a priority!
